You Are Here – Finland

Not all is lost for YAH series. The new Starbucks You Are Here Finland continues the European Countries release stretch. Designers used all sort of colors trying to describe the wonders of nature from this beautiful Northern country. I think they did a pretty good job considering they had to stay withing general style of this series.… Read more

Been There – Canada

I somehow missed to publish Starbucks Been There Canada mug. By doing that I am finishing the Canadian BT series so far (hoping there will be more in the future). As for this particular mug, Starbucks has combined most of the cliches about Canada existing. … Read more

You Are Here Christmas – China

Even though it’s not Christmas yet, Starbucks decided to come up with one of the most beautiful mugs from soon to be discontinued series – You Are Here Christmas China. Again, considering the release date, we probably better call it You Are Here China Gold? Regardless, I have to repeat, this mug looks amazing. My understanding this is due to big dragon, which is not just outlined, but fully painted with Gold. This is probably one of those “must have” mugs every collector should get.… Read more

You Are Here – Wales

As the last accords of discontinued collection – Starbucks You Are Here Wales
The mug is designed having in mind the Flag of Wales, which incorporates the red dragon along with the Tudor colors of green and white.
From the mug:

– green hills or mountains – probably referring to Snowdonia – mountainous region and a national park in northwestern Wales.… Read more

I still need to see the back of the mug to finish this list though.… Read more

You Are Here – Norway

If you’re missing YAHs already, here is the small treat – Starbucks You Are Here – Norway mug. As it was planned, this summer will be the Country mugs season. This particular mug has a very vivid design with popping colors: red, blue and white are pretty much the only colors used. We see two Norwegian flags (like one was not enough), mountains, snow and Christmas trees. Add here skis to emphasise skiing being huge in Norway and Oseberg Ship – a well-preserved Viking ship displayed at the Viking Ship Museum at Bygdøy and you are going to get pretty much the full picture of this mug.… Read more
