Been There Ornament – Waikiki

Hawaii BTO is followed by Starbucks Been There Ornament Waikiki. They were actually spotted together, which makes sense. This mini mug has orange string and it’s front is mostly occupied by Diamond Head State Monument. I don’t necessary agree that the real mountain looks exactly like it is pictured, but it is what it is.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Seattle

New mini BTs are popping up pretty fast! Here’s the fresh release from today, Been There Ornament Seattle.
Below is the comparison photo of BT and BTO together. As we can see, many design elements were rearranged. It does look like some were removed, however the mini mug still has a lot to discover. The string is blue, same color as the inside of the mug.

Been There – Charlotte 2

As for the intersection itself, it splits Charlotte Center City (a.k.a Uptown) into four neighborhoods.… Read more

Been There – Detroit 2

This was one of the first mugs from BT collection added to the site, yet it was still a preview. The actual release only happened today, and as you can guess, the delay was also caused by a misprint. Starbucks Been There Detroit v2 is missing “Startup city USA” “nickname” above Ambassador Bridge (which was replaced by two clouds). I, sincerely, tried to research where is that “nickname” coming from and can only assume it was supposed to represent the new era of entrepreneurship of Detroit.… Read more

Been There – Atlanta 2

Starbucks Been There Atlanta v2 has been released a couple weeks ago, yet I had no pictures of v1 to compare with. Now I do. As you can see from the collage below, the actual misprint was “Chattahoochie river” instead of “Сhattahoochee river”. It still amazes me how bad quality control at Starbucks was, while designing this series.
