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 – Bahrain

Arabian Peninsula scores again with Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Bahrain. The Kingdom of Bahrain is an archipelago in the Persian Gulf which originally consisted of 33 islands, but due to land reclamation from the sea, this number is more than doubled now (although, islands that have been added are pretty small). There are not that many stores, around 30 actually, yet the ornament has been released and I am sure many collectors will be more than happy to add it to their stash.… Read more
