Been There – Peruvian Mugs

There were reports from locals that they could not find Lima mug, which I reviewed earlier. I thought there was a delay and I still expected it to come out sooner or later. Imagine my surprise, when one of the followers revealed the news that not one but four Peruvian mugs hit the stores today! I have these exclusive photos to share with you on behalf of the kind reader of this blog.
Interesting enough three out of four mugs have either Llama or Alpaca on them, and this is no surprise since these animals are native to Peru.… Read more

Been There State Error Mugs

Since there was a lot of confusion around misprints found on Been There mugs, I believe it makes sense to consolidate all the information about them in one post.
Let me start with a little bit of history. We’ve seen misprints in the past. A very good example can be Montréal and Quebéc mugs, where the version with accent quickly replaced the one without accent. Those two mugs are pretty expensive now, but many collectors don’t consider this to be a different version and don’t even bother getting it.… Read more

You Are Here Disney – each land gets the mug?

In the light of the recent release from Starbucks and Disney, it was brought to my attention that this is actually not the first mug dedicated to a specific Themed Land within corresponding Disney Park. Let’s start with California. If we look at the bottoms of California Adventure 2 and Disneyland 2 it turns out, that the first is based on the Paradise Pier and the second is based on the Fantasyland. I’ve combined these two and the newest Disney mug from California together in a collage. … Read more
