Been There Ornament Disney – Animal Kingdom 2

Along with the bigger mug Starbucks has released the WDW 50th Anniversary ornaments as well. Please meet Been There Ornament Disney – Animal Kingdom 2
If you compare the ornament to the full-size mug, it becomes obvious that Starbucks decided to not create a custom design by rearranging or removing the elements, as is the case for all other ornaments from Been There series. This time artists went with a full copy of the design of the mug, just making it smaller.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Arizona 3

It seems that rather than introducing new locations, Starbucks decided to review the existing ones. You probably remember that Arizona has already seen a revised ornament and a mug, shortly after the new collection came out (it seems that “the Sand Hill State” was not exactly the nickname Arizonians recognized).
Well, as I said, Starbucks has gone even further and completely updated the design with the release of the brand new Been There Ornament – Arizona v3. As you can see from the comparison picture below, most of the design elements of the ornament were rearranged.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Krakow

You Are Here Ornament – Krakow is the second in a row city release from the YAH ornament series. Starbucks has been only releasing country ornaments recently, so it is nice to see that there is more than that. There are certainly many countries that we, collectors, would like Starbucks to come up with the ornaments for, but it won’t hurt if cities are added to the schedule too!
When reviewing the full-sized mug, I didn’t mention the dragon on the right of the front of the mug, so I would like to give it attention now.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Nha Trang

Starbucks has opened two new stores in Vietnam, both in Nha Trang city. Both have promos during the first two days from the opening. You Are Here Ornament – Nha Trang was given as a gift with any purchase on April 28th at the Nha Trang Center location! At the time I am posting this, the day is over in Vietnam, but it is not too late to get the Bearista Key Chain for any purchase on Apr 29th.
Nha Trang makes it the sixth YAH ornament from Vietnam and raises the question of how is it possible to still release YAHs, with Been There Vietnam mugs already on the shelves?… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Kazakhstan

Mini mugs have a special place in my heart and I am always excited to see the new ones coming out. This release is no exception, please meet Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Kazakhstan that makes it the 150th little “ornie” from this collection. Interestingly enough, there is no sign of the bigger mug being released yet, but something tells me this is just a matter of time. I don’t recall a country ornament without a full-sized mug from Starbucks, do you?… Read more

Been There Ornament – Macau

Starbucks Been There Ornament – Macau accompanies the bigger mug. And again, we’re seeing a similar pattern to what happened with the previous collection. Back in 2016, Macao YAH was released along with the ornament, same for Hong Kong. However, when the time came for the remaining ornaments from China, there was only one released – Puer. Hopefully, Starbucks has different plans for Been There Ornaments from this country.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Sweden

To my surprise, Starbucks releases You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Sweden along with the regular ornament. For a country with only ten stores (all in Stockholm), it is great news! See these two ornaments below for a comparison. As you can notice, it is a giant Christmas Tree and a Snowman that were added on the front.
To my understanding, these can still be found in stores, so you better hurry up before they are gone.

You Are Here Ornament – Sweden

I salute the release of Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Sweden as it completes the Nordic countries ornament list (with the exception of Iceland, which doesn’t have stores). Similar to the bigger mug, the ornament presents the Royal Palace (an official residence of the Swedish monarch) on the front. The Palace was built between 1697 and 1760 in Italian Baroque style on the remains of the “Tre Kronor” castle which was burned down in 1697.
