Been There Christmas – Colorado

Here’s Starbucks Been There Christmas – Colorado – another expected Christmas Edition mug. Unintentionally it has somewhat Christmas tree on it (Colorado Blue Spruce – official state tree). There should also be a red cup, but it can’t be seen on the front of the mug. Stay tuned for more pictures of it. … Read more

Been There Christmas – Michigan

Starbucks Been There Christmas Michigan is unique in the that sense that it’s little bit different when compared to regular mug. And it’s not just the color which is different. Here’s the side by side comparison of those two. See how regular mug has “Winter Water Wonderland” slogan, while the Christmas Edition has corrected one “Water Winter Wonderland”? This slogan appeared on Michigan license plates from 1965 through 1967. This could easily be an Error State mug but it wasn’t.… Read more

Been There Christmas – California

Yet another Christmas Edition mug, Starbucks Been There Christmas California has been revealed by a generous collector. Like I’ve mentioned before, Starbucks is “hiding” a small cup in each Been There design. In case of Christmas mugs, that cup is red, making it the only colored element from the whole mug! For California Gold, this particular detail can be seen on the front.… Read more

Been There Christmas – New York

Starbucks Been There Christmas New York has been spotted for sale, but not in stores, coming obviously from people who have early access to pre-released merchandise. Starbucks marks shipping boxes with “no picking before November 2” labels, yet it doesn’t stop some baristas. I still suggest waiting till official release, and buy it for the face value. Sometimes it is worth the wait.… Read more

Been There Christmas – Texas

Been There Christmas Texas mug joins the party of Starbucks Been There Christmas Collection. Similar to regular mug it kept all state symbols, while having that festive look with gold linings on the white background. Btw, if you decide to use it on the daily basis, please remember, you can’t place it in microwave, because of the gold paint used. While I am sure Starbucks didn’t use real gold (you wish!), paint probably has metal particles in it. … Read more

Been There Christmas – Washington

The first mug from Christmas collection for Been There Series is already here! As you can see, it is actually company’s home state – Starbucks Been There Christmas Washington. The design pretty much replicates the regular BT mug, keeping all state symbols. All colors have been removed though, except one very interesting detail. I made a collage of the regular BT Washington and Christmas Edition below. As you can see the standard cup (the one Starbucks “hides” in every Been There design) was replaced with the holiday one, painted in red making it the only colored element on the mug.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Maine

Here is Starbucks Been There Ornament Maine. From the front of the mug:
– Moose has been chosen as official state animal in 1979
– Pine cone – hence the state’s nickname: The Pine Tree State. The pine is used as a symbol in the state’s seal, flag, flower, and tree.
– Sea shell, fishing hook, fishing float and seiners (fishing boat) – all relate to ocean playing a major part in Maine’s history and present days. In fact, Maine’s beautiful landscape, famous for its unchanged scenery and opportunities for hunting, fishing and boating has made recreation an important industry.… Read more
