Starbucks Mug Collection

When Ian and I first went to Seattle, we went to the original Starbucks at Pike Place Market. Ian bought a mug that had a picture of the storefront on it. From then we started collecting their "'08 Icon Series City Collection". So far we have...

  • Barcelona
  • California
  • Los Angeles
  • Pike Place Market
  • Scotland
  • Seattle
  • Washington, DC
  • Vancouver

We got our latest addition on Saturday. Toronto!

Why do we collect them? Good question. I'm not sure why. They hold a decent size cup of coffee or tea. They are colorful and will look good in our glass corner cabinet in the kitchen. But they are also pretty interesting... most have sketches of the city's skyline on them. It's surprisingly fun to "collect" something too. They aren't as tacky as say... Nascar Collector Plates!

We've been able to expand our collection with the help of my co-workers. If I'm lucky, I will be able to add Greece and Korea to our collection soon! Here is the list of cities that you can get. If you happen to be heading to any of these cities, let us know. :)
