You Are Here – Ireland

What a pleasant Friday release from Starbucks! As per increasing collectors’ demand, You Are Here – Ireland mug is finally here. Obviously featuring:
– Shamrock – the national flower of Ireland. St Patrick used the shamrock’s three leaves to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagans during his mission of Christianizing Ireland. Shamrock is also a symbol of luck, mainly if it has four leaves. It was also an important symbol to the ancient Irish druids who believed that everything important in the world comes in threes, like the three dominions of earth, sky, and sea, as an example.… Read more

You Are Here – Malta

The store is yet to open its doors, however, Starbucks has announced the mug in advance. This is You Are Here Malta, as it appears on Malta Starbucks Facebook page. There is no official release date, but they assure it’s coming soon!
Thanks to vivid colors, this mug looks special. We see the Valletta skyline with Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on the front of the mug. It is a Roman Catholic church that forms part of a UNESCO World Heritage site which includes the entire city.… Read more

You Are Here – Monaco

Apparently, it has been a couple of weeks since the release of You Are Here – Monaco mug. However, it was only spotted two days ago, thanks to a Facebook user. I made my own quick research and can see some photos from April with this mug behind the counter in one of the Starbucks stores in Monaco. There are only two of those in that tiny country; that explains why it has not been seen earlier. The mug is designed using red and gold shades.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Switzerland

Here is the second mini mug from the recent weekend release. Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Switzerland is a colorful representative of this adorable series and has everything this country is famous for: cheese, chocolate, watch, lakes, and mountains. And for the latter, designers specifically depicted the Matterhorn, a pyramidal peak between Italy and Switzerland. The four steep faces, rising above the surrounding glaciers, face the four compass points and are split by the Hörnli, Furggen, Leone/Lion, and Zmutt ridges. As for the bear (on the back of the mug), this is probably related to Bern, “city of Bears”.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Austria

It has been a while since the last YAH ornament has been added here. I sincerely believed that Starbucks will be releasing one ornament every Friday. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen, and as an excuse, our beloved company has delivered two minis in one shot last weekend. You Are Here Ornament Austria is one of those. It comes with the blue string and has the same color inside, similar to the bigger mug, Austria YAH. As a reminder, there was also a limited edition ornament for this country.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Bulgaria

The release of You Are Here Ornament – Bulgaria tells me, that I underestimated the amount of minis coming out this year. Not only bigger markets like Germany are getting new releases, we’re seeing Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria joining the party as well. We can only wish that all European mugs are “minimized”, but it’s up to Starbucks marketing department to decide.
Here’s the full-sized version of this mug, same design was used for the ornament. The string is lime green.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Germany

There was a confusing delay in releasing more ornaments from Europe, but today, we finally see the Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Germany making its appearance in stores. Apparently, the releases will happen in batches, so we can expect other minis coming out soon.
All I can add, this ornament is a copy of a bigger mug. The string color is brown, or to be more specific, walnut (I am not a colorist though).… Read more
