mini home theater decor or concession items

My mini snow cone machine and hot dog cart arrived yesterday.
I'm going to try these out this weekend.

The mini popcorn and snow cone machines are sold out on Macy's website.
The mini hot dog cart has been reduced to $39.99

I was going to get the hot dog cart for home theater decor.
I may order one later on for decoration.
I'm going to actually use the hot dog cart and snow cone machine.

They look great.
The snow cone machine is larger than what I thought.
One word of warning about the snow cone machine.
The manual says that you can't use the snow cone machine for more than 5 mins. continuously.
I realize you get what you pay for but if the unit stops working, I could always use it for decor.
I would rather pay $40 for a snow cone machine versus $500 for a commercial one.
I would rather play $50 for a hot dog machine versus $600 for a commercial one.
Yes, I'm definetely happy!

Update:

The snow cone machine is veryyyy slow!
I'm taking the snow cone machine back to a local Macy's and get the mini popcorn machine for decoration.
I think the popcorn machine looks better than the hot dog and snow cone machine decoration wise.

Update part 2:

I was scared that something was going to happen if I went over the 5 mins making the ice in the snow cone machine.
There is a funny smell coming from the top of the machine.
Both machines, my Dad's and mine.
I don't know if this is a concidence or not.

My Dad has changed his mind about the snow cone machine too!
He doesn't even want to keep it for decoration.
He is keeping the popcorn machine and hot dog cart for decoration.
After seeing his popcorn machine on top of a tv, I have to get one just for decoration.

Also, I have heard from other people that the popcorn machine pushes out unpopped kernels with the popped ones.
Again, when I get the popcorn machine, I'm getting it for decoration.

Nice room. I like the molding you chose. Can you post some pics of a movie playing. So we can see the whole set up in action.

I wish I could show pics of the movie playing but I have a very cheap digital camera that takes awful pictures.
I'll try to borrow my Dad's camera and take some soon.
I have tried taking pictures of movies in action but maybe since I'm using an lcd projector has something to do with it.

Macy's was too crowded yesterday to take the snow cone machine back.
I bought the mini popcorn machine (for decoration) from Rich's yesterday.
