You Are Here Ornament – Krakow

You Are Here Ornament – Krakow is the second in a row city release from the YAH ornament series. Starbucks has been only releasing country ornaments recently, so it is nice to see that there is more than that. There are certainly many countries that we, collectors, would like Starbucks to come up with the ornaments for, but it won’t hurt if cities are added to the schedule too!
When reviewing the full-sized mug, I didn’t mention the dragon on the right of the front of the mug, so I would like to give it attention now.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Nha Trang

Starbucks has opened two new stores in Vietnam, both in Nha Trang city. Both have promos during the first two days from the opening. You Are Here Ornament – Nha Trang was given as a gift with any purchase on April 28th at the Nha Trang Center location! At the time I am posting this, the day is over in Vietnam, but it is not too late to get the Bearista Key Chain for any purchase on Apr 29th.
Nha Trang makes it the sixth YAH ornament from Vietnam and raises the question of how is it possible to still release YAHs, with Been There Vietnam mugs already on the shelves?… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Kazakhstan

Mini mugs have a special place in my heart and I am always excited to see the new ones coming out. This release is no exception, please meet Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Kazakhstan that makes it the 150th little “ornie” from this collection. Interestingly enough, there is no sign of the bigger mug being released yet, but something tells me this is just a matter of time. I don’t recall a country ornament without a full-sized mug from Starbucks, do you?… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Sweden

To my surprise, Starbucks releases You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Sweden along with the regular ornament. For a country with only ten stores (all in Stockholm), it is great news! See these two ornaments below for a comparison. As you can notice, it is a giant Christmas Tree and a Snowman that were added on the front.
To my understanding, these can still be found in stores, so you better hurry up before they are gone.

You Are Here Ornament – Sweden

I salute the release of Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Sweden as it completes the Nordic countries ornament list (with the exception of Iceland, which doesn’t have stores). Similar to the bigger mug, the ornament presents the Royal Palace (an official residence of the Swedish monarch) on the front. The Palace was built between 1697 and 1760 in Italian Baroque style on the remains of the “Tre Kronor” castle which was burned down in 1697.

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Turkey

A brand new release has just popped up online. This is You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Turkey which is the second Holiday mini mug from this country. The first one is the Istanbul ornament of course. And just as a reminder, it remains the only city Christmas ornament outside of the US!
As you can see from the pictures below, apart from the gold color, there are very few Christmas symbols on the new mug: only the hat and the gift box.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Norway

Just recently I’ve mentioned the release of the new mini mug from this Nordic country and we have its Holiday edition sibling Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Norway hitting the shelves. For easier comparison, I’ve placed this new ornament next to the regular one and there is one interesting detail that I would like to point out. Apart from Holiday symbols added to the design, the shape of the Christmas trees is different on both the front and the back of the mug.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Russia

Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Russia opens the Holiday season of the city/country mugs. I am really happy to see that Starbucks decided to release more mugs for the YAH collection since I was under the impression that last Christmas was the season finale for this series.
For an easy comparison, I placed the regular and Christmas ornaments side by side below. As you can see the snowman and the gift boxes were added on the right of the front of the mug.… Read more
