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 Ornament – Alaska

We have special news today! Definitely earlier than I expected, Starbucks is releasing Been There Ornaments! The first mini mug that has been spotted in stores so far, is Been There Ornament Alaska.

You Are Here Ornament – Puer

I’ve been dreaming about this for a year now. Ever since it became clear that China gets lots of YAHs, I knew that ornaments are coming sooner or later too. It has happened today, the first Chinese YAH ornament is out, Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Puer. Interesting enough, this is a completely new city.

You Are Here Ornament – Da Nang

This is an unexpected release from Starbucks. Yes, we did anticipate the YAH mug for the newly opened Da Nang store, but there were no rumors about ornament! So here it is, You Are Here Ornament Da Nang. Again, a very low quality photo from the store’s shelf. Let’s see what it looks like in real. I am planning to get one for sure!

Update from 02/05/2018: added a better picture of the ornament. Now we can identify design elements from this mini mug.… Read more
