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 – 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 – Kuwait

Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Kuwait is a mini mug for the country at the tip of the Persian Gulf. Thanks to this location, the country benefits from huge oil reserves that are the sixth-largest in the world. That helps to backs up the high-income economy of the country with Kuwaiti dinar being the highest valued currency in the world.
You might want to read this post, where I compare the regular YAH and the Holiday Edition one, it has some references to what’s on the mug.… Read more

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
