You Are Here Ornament – Malta

Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Malta has been finally released, after being in “rumored” state for almost six months. Not sure what took Starbucks so long, some production issues maybe. Anyway, it’s here and ready to join your collection.
As always, the mini mug kept all the elements of the design of the bigger mug. Here are some of Malta’s symbols to see:
– Bażilika Santwarju tal-Madonna tal-Karmnu (Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel) – which is probably Valletta’s most iconic landmark with its large dome dominating over city skyline.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Scotland

Great news for UK collectors: Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Scotland is out! The regular Scotland Ornament is already not that easy one to get, and I bet it will be even worse for this Holiday Edition mini mug. My understanding, Scotland is considered a “remote country” compared to Central Europe.
When looking at the regular version these are the changes I’ve noticed in the new release:
– The highland cow got the Christmas Hat. Btw, highland cattle are a Scottish breed of cattle with long horns and long, wavy, woolly coats, which can be of multiple colors.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Oklahoma 2

There have been rumors about this change, but there was no evidence. Well, it is official now, Starbucks Been There Ornament – Oklahoma v2 is out. The only change I am seeing, that they’ve added an apostrophe to the “Boomers Paradise” so it became “Boomers’ Paradise”. Props to those collectors who make no big deal about the new version, but I can’t resist and have to have both in my possession.

Been There Ornament – Pennsylvania 2

Starbucks Been There Ornament – Pennsylvania v2 is an updated version of the previously released mini mug. It brings two changes as far as I can see – the deer now says “Youse!” instead of “Youze!”, “TURN-PIKE” has the dash in the name. It seems that most of the recent changes for Been There mugs are related to dashes, I see them everywhere. That being said, it seems like a valid reason to release the second version, do you guys agree?… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Istanbul

What I love about Starbucks, that it always does unexpected moves in terms of merchandise and mugs in particular. However, it might be only unexpected to us, while their marketing department knows better what to release and when. Anyway, just when I thought that European country ornaments were the last batch from this series for this region, Starbucks strikes back with the release of the mini city mug – You Are Here Ornament – Istanbul. Pretty amazing, right? On the other hand, this major Turkish city holds a special place in Starbucks YAH collection.… Read more
