i e-mailed tangiers on their goofy website asking if there was any way they would start selling mini phunnels again, and if not; if i could get one somehow. this was their response:
Probably not. We will keep a small supply of them here at the factory for walk-in retail. We like making white elephants...which is what the minis were.
so it sounds like they are still making just a few. but you have to go to tangiers in so. cal. to get one. somebody needs to go down there and buy 50 of them and sell them to us!
