Gotta tell ya, I've been waffeling like mad on these. I was just in denial about having slipped so far down the slope, so quickly. About five months ago, I get a 50 stick humi when a friend on another forum bombed me badly. Month later that was pitifully small, and I snagged a "125" stick box. Then I joined up here. Oops. About a month ago, I set up a coolidor, then bought a larger one a couple weeks later. Then - shilala's beads for everyone.

I just couldn't face the truth of it.

Then on the way home today, I decided to get one. Next step, was getting the idea past my wife. Trying to sort out the best way to do it, I just decided to act like it was perfectly normal to buy a wine cooler to convert into a humidor.

Me: "Hon - I need your car to go to Target" (I've got a small econo-box)

She: "???"

Me: "They have a good sale on the 28 bottle Vinotemps and I want to get one for my stogies."

She: "???"

Me: "I think it's largish"

She: "Ahhh - you need the cargo room. Ok"

Me: "!!!"

She: "Oh - I have a $10 gift card there that I'll never use. You may as well."

Me: "Okthanks.I'mgoingtocallthemrightnowandseeiftheyhaveanyinstock"

So I called the closest Target. Got the guy from appliances on the line and yea they had one. One. He also pointed out they've been marked down .....​
***-> BECAUSE THEY ARE BEING DISCONTINUED <-***

He put it on hold for me and I was there in less than 10 minutes.


I sure hope the guy at Target was wrong about why they're marked down.

------
Don't really have the time tonight to clean it out. I took out the racks and plugged it in and it's sitting there at 66F. I put a bowl of baking soda inside to soak up some of the stink and I'll just leave that in till tomorrow some time. Speaking of tomorrow, probably a good time to hit Woodcraft for some shelving. Got 1.5 lbs of shilala's beads and an Oust fan in the coolidor, waiting till the smell's out, and the shelves are ready.

Oh ... and the wife just said "Well ... that looks a lot nicer than that ratty old cooler you've been using." :D

Well, I just became the proud owner of a 28 bottle vino. I have been on the road for work all week and today while I was working in the home office, the wife came in and said she had something for me. She bought the vino for me on sale at Target, the last one they had.....:tu

For the more thrifty among us, Mtmouse makes a fine product - I'm going through him, as well as through ChasDen making the stained-front drawers.

Boy am I excited for the coming weeks :D
Any info on the cost of Mtmouse's drawers for the Vino?

Not trying to talk you out of a Vino - but that one underling at one Target is the only place I've heard they're being discontinued. I'd call it not verified yet.

True, but nowhere else ever sells it for $150.. That's why this may be the last shot value-wise

The trays are $35 each + shipping and P@yP@l fees. The shelves are $18 each + shipping and P@yP@l fees. They are made to order and generally take a week or less to go out, once ordered.

Shipping isn't cheap by USPS standards, but then again, nothing in Canada is. Shipping generally runs $19 - $26(FedEx ground), depending on location. I would need your zip code to calculate the shipping cost.

Well I went to my target last night and they were $199.99 :(

Oh well
Yes it can't hurt to have someone do a check on it. Sorry that I haven't made a post in the new person forum yet, but figured this was worth it here. I picked up my new Vino a few days ago from reading this thread and it still had the old marking on it, but I had them bring a trolley out and bring it up to the register, and it rang up as $149.

Can you use these for wine and smokes?
Yes...I have mine at least half filled with wine. The rest is smokes. I can also move wine out to accomodate more smokes without drawing ire from my wife. I think the half way point and I might start getting some looks....she has mentioned we might need another Vinotemp. I have no problem holding humidity with a pound of beads. I think I'd have to recharge my beads less if I had another pound though.

Update: I fought off the urge to buy another vino.. I was 2 blocks from target and made the turn to go home.. yay!
