You Are Here Ornament – Puer

I’ve been dreaming about this for a year now. Ever since it became clear that China gets lots of YAHs, I knew that ornaments are coming sooner or later too. It has happened today, the first Chinese YAH ornament is out, Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Puer. Interesting enough, this is a completely new city. The bigger mug has been released too and I can’t see it in the pics from the Chinese mugs preview I did earlier. It means that the assumption about second wave was not accurate.… Read more

You Are Here – Wales

From the mug:

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

Been There – San Diego

A previously delayed, Starbucks Been There San Diego mug has been spotted in stores. At this point, I can only guess what was the reason for the delay. This can easily be the v2 and we are yet to discover if there was the v1 and what was the misprint.… Read more

Been There – Los Angeles 2

Here’s another “delayed” city mug for you guys: Starbucks Been There Los Angeles 2. And yes, it is different from previously posted LA version 1 Here is the picture of two mugs side by side:

The actual misprint is “City of The Angels” instead of “City of Angels”. Way too many errors in this series… Do you agree? It almost makes me think this was done on purpose. … Read more

Been There – Boston 2

Thanks to my amazing reader, I have this exclusive news to share with you. Here’s Starbucks Been There Boston v2 mug. Wait, what? You heard it right – this is version 2 of the previously posted Boston mug. Here’s the comparison picture for you:

I know, these photos are really blurry, but we can still see, that v1 has “Boston Commons” on the back of the mug instead of “Boston Common” found on v2. Ironically this is a very common mistake made by tourists and non-locals.… Read more

– soccer (it is called football in Europe)
– Flamenco – which is not just the dance but a set of music traditions of Southern Spain.
I still need to see the back of the mug to finish this list though.… Read more
