Vending Machine

Gold Handcuffs, Miami’s Mondrian South Beach Hotel

Hotel gift shops—so passé. At this chic South Beach hotel, one full wall of the lobby is taken up by the Semi-Automatic, an enticingly mod, pink-purple vending machine. Some to-go items: a feather vest ($400), a $28 T-shirt emblazoned with the word recession, or, better yet, the 24-karat-gold handcuffs ($350). You can even buy a nearby condo, or rent a 1953 Cadillac DeVille convertible.

Price: Ranges from $10 to $1.2 million. For the super-high-end items—say, buying a car or condo—you pay a deposit, which you lose if you later opt out.  I so want to know how much of what has been sold.
