You Are Here Ornament – Türkiye

Similar to the bigger mug, there is also an update for You Are Here Ornament – Türkiye. As you can see from the picture, the two ornaments are identical, except for the name. I now wonder if an updated Christmas version is something we can expect from Starbucks.

As a bonus, I included a Special Edition ornament that I have in my collection as well (the one with the red handle). It was released to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Turkey, which marked a century since its establishment on October 29, 1923.… Read more

You Are Here – Türkiye

The release of Starbucks You Are Here – Türkiye mug is a nod to the fact that in June 2022, Turkey officially changed its internationally recognized name to “Türkiye,” reflecting a shift to the country’s original Turkish name. The move aims to enhance the nation’s global image and cultural identity.

Just a reminder, that a You Are Here – Turkey is already a part of the collection. The new mug is a complete copy, except for the way the name is written.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Turkey

A brand new release has just popped up online. This is You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Turkey which is the second Holiday mini mug from this country. The first one is the Istanbul ornament of course. And just as a reminder, it remains the only city Christmas ornament outside of the US!
As you can see from the pictures below, apart from the gold color, there are very few Christmas symbols on the new mug: only the hat and the gift box.… Read more

You Are Here – Turkey

It took Starbucks six city mugs before releasing You Are Here Turkey country mug. Unfortunately I was not able to identify the building on the front of the mug, but it is definitely something from ancient times.
Thanks to a comment below the post, I’ve realized I was wrong about the building on the front of the mug. It is in fact Anıtkabir (literally, “memorial tomb”) – the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. It was opened to public on September 1st, 1953 to honour the leader of the Turkish War of Independence and the founder and first President of the Republic of Turkey.… Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Istanbul

Very surprising release – You Are Here Christmas Istanbul, just when we thought YAHs of this kind are over this year. This gives us hope for more Holiday mugs this year, since it’s only November.
As for the mug, it resembles the regular YAH with the snowman, Christmas tree and some other elements added to it.
Please see the pic below for a comparison:


Just a reminder, we now have 27 Christmas YAHs (apart from 2 from US) available in the collection… Read more

You Are Here – Antalya

Two new YAHs were spotted today in Turkey. I guess Starbucks is popular in this country since these are 5th and 6th mugs from this series.
Antalya – is one of the world’s and the Mediterranean’s leading tourist destinations. It attracts 30% of foreign tourists visiting Turkey. We don’t have the picture of the back of the mug yet, so I can only see Düden Waterfalls – a group of waterfalls ending directly in the Mediterranean Sea.… Read more
