I am about to get married (2 weeks!), and my fiance has been asking for a wine refrigerator since we got engaged. I thought it would make a great wedding present, but I know nothing about shopping for such an appliance.
My fiance currently has about 75 bottles stored in our spare bathroom's linen closet. I know he wants something large (at least 100 bottle capacity, up to 200 if I can afford it). I don't necessarily want a furniture quality unit, though that would be nice...we live in a relatively small apartment, so whatever we get can't be tucked away and will probably reside in the living room or kitchen area.
Problem is, I don't have limitless funds to spend. If I have a budget of say, $700, do you think it would be possible to find something of reasonable quality? I have no problem with a used unit if it will hold up for a few more years, or a scratch-and-dent unit that might be a little more reasonably priced. Any suggestions about where to shop for such a unit? I'm located in Atlanta, if that makes any difference.
Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.
