Gold Handcuffs, Miami’s Mondrian South Beach Hotel

5 of 26

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, purple vending machine. Some go-to items: a
feather vest ($400), a $28 T-shirt emblazoned with the word recession,
or, our favorite, 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.
