Starbucks Ornament’s 2004 & 2005

Hey everyone….2004 kicked off the Ceramic To Go Cup ornaments. The first To Go Cup was in 1999 and it was a plastic White To Go Cup.

The craze all starts here….


2004 Red Holiday To Go Cup

This year Starbucks kept it simple and classic. This is a ceramic cup with white snow flakes and a bright red bow under the Siren logo. Complete with a red satin hanger

This is the second To Go Cup that was released,But it is the first Holiday To Go Cup ornament. And I think it was perfectly merry.

This came packaged in a clear box with a red satin bow

This also came packaged in a clear box and a red satin bow

This ceramic Wish*Joy*Love Cup and Saucer is just charming. Around the outer rim, the classic holiday emotions of WISH*JOY*LOVE.

2005 Red Holiday To Go Cup

Starbucks stuck with the Red Holiday Cups from here on out.

This is again a ceramic cup adorned in the 2005 Slogan {It Only Happen’s Once A Year}. The cup is also filled with lots of holiday cheer. 

The top is hung with Christmas lights and the back hide’s a stuffed to the brim checkered stocking.

This also came packaged in a festive clear box and the classic red satin bow

Update 4/24/2018 – 1st International Snow Globe Ornament Release in Japan found


2005 Santa Train Snow Globe Ornament

This year I think I have finally come across what I believe to be the 1st Snow Globe ornament from Japan. I recently acquired this from a friend in Japan and was excited to see that this is a better quality version to the 2012 Santa Train ornament. Not only is the paint neater, but had a bit for eye for detail. This came in the red Santa Train box that came with chocolate coins just like the 2012 version did

These are the noticeable differences that separates the two

  1. Hand painted detail more refined in 2005 then 2012
  2. 2005 Santa is a bigger and has better features then 2012
  3. Back of train says Starbucks Coffee on 2005 where Coffee is omitted from 2012 and appears to be scratched off the original mold
  4. 2005 train is a tad larger then the 2012 cast mold
  5. Bottom text is neat and cleaner on 2005 then 2012

Happy Hunting my fellow collectors, this one is a rare gem to find and I put this in the Ultra Rare HTF category!

 


Get Ready because up next is 2006.  That is the year the Architect Series ornament’s arrived and Starbucks did a Holiday Catalog and a ton of variety.

I hope everyone here in the US has a Healthy and Happy Thanksgiving!!

From Mine to Yours!!

Starbucks Ornaments 2003

Hey there guys….I hope your all reading my Starbucks post’s and enjoying them. Sometimes I wonder if this is even helping any other collector’s like myself. So please leave some comment’s if any of my post’s have been helpful in your searches. I’d love here about your finds and thoughts

So today I’ll focus on 2003. There were a lot released. 7 SKU’s in all. I think you’ll be impressed with this collection.

2003 White Abbey II Mug Ornament

In 2003 Starbucks released the 2nd style of Abbey mugs. This is a white ceramic mug with a steaming red mug. The white on the mug also has iridescent snowflakes around it and a candy cane stripe handle. Hung with red satin cord. The bottom is stamped 2003

The packaging was sealed shut and was not reusable

Sold for $4.95

2003 Abby II White Ornament3

2003 Red Abbey II Mug Ornament

Starbucks offered the 2nd edition Abbey mug in 2 ornament this year. This one is plain red ceramic with a steaming white mug. They did not do the snowflakes or the reverse candy cane handle. Both are unique in their own style this year and I love that. The bottom is stamped 2003

This packaging was also sealed shut and was not reusable

Sold for $4.95

2003 Abby II Red Ornament2

2003 Mini Pleated Logo Mug Ornament

Starbucks went a step further and released a white ceramic pleated mug with siren logo. Also hung with a red cord hanger. The bottom is stamped 2003. This is the only year they released a pleated mug which was the same as in store mugs this year as well

This packaging is the same as the last, and not reusable

Sold for $4.95

2003 Pleated Ornament Cup3

2003 White Abbey Mug Ornament Repeat

This is exactly the same as the 2002, but the packaging, cord and date stamp are different. The packaging has the same bottom container as all the others released in 03′. It also was given the same sateen red cord hanger instead of the 2002 red flat satin ribbon. The bottom is marked with 2003 instead of 2002.  I added a side by side of the packaging photo as well for comparison

Sold for $4.95

2003 Abbey White Mug1

 

2003 Red Abbey Mug Ornament Repeat

This also looks exactly the same as the 2002, except the packaging, cord and date stamp are different. The red mug also has the same packaging, bottom container and sateen red cord hanger instead of the 02′ red flat satin ribbon. The bottom on this years also marked with 2003.

Sold for $4.95

2003-abbey-red-mug

Here is all 4 mugs released in 2002 & 2003 so you can see the difference in packaging and cords. All else appears to be identical. 02′ on bottom and 03′ on top

2003 City Mug Ornament Set 1

Starbucks did the first set of ornaments in 2003. But they gave us 2 great set’s to choose from. Set 1 includes the following cities:

  • Las Vegas – Red Skyline Scene inside mug stamped “Sin City”
  • Atlanta – Blue Skyline Scene inside stamped “Hotlanta”
  • San Diego – Light Blue Skyline Scene inside stamped “74° and Sunny”
  • Seattle – Green Skyline Scene inside stamped “Emerald City”

The mugs are all stamped on the bottom 2002, but they were released as a set for 2003 as the original tag show’s.

This series is hard to find I’ll give it that

Sold for $14.95

2003 City Skyline Series Ornament Set 2003 City Skyline Series Set 2

2003 City Mug Seroes SKY2

2003 City Mug Ornament Set 2

This is the second set of 4 that Starbucks released from the Skyline City Series.

Set 2 includes the following cities:

  • Seattle – Green Skyline Scene inside stamped “Emerald City”
  • New York – Blue Skyline Scene inside stamped “The Big Apple”
  • San Francisco – Blue Skyline Scene inside stamped “City By The Bay”
  • Chicago – Blue Skyline Scene inside stamped “The Windy City”

These mugs are all stamped on the bottom 2002, but they were released as a set for 2003 as the original tag show’s on this one too.

These 2 City set’s were the one’s I was referring to in the 2002 Chicago City Mug Ornament. Since both set’s were sold in 2003, and all mugs stamped 2002, makes me think these also might have also been sold individually. I’m still keeping an eye out and if I do find any clue’s I’ll be sure to post them.

Sold for $14.95

2003 Skyline Series Set Pkgd 2003 Skyline Series Ornament Set 2

This concludes all of 2003’s ornament’s. I hope this helped solve anyone’s confusion on how these were sold.

Happy Hunting my fellow collector’s and see you up next for 2004 & 2005 🙂

 

 

Starbucks Ornament’s 2001 & 2002

I have been unsuccessful in finding any ornament’s that were released in 2000. Starbucks was not helpful either in my search, so if anyone reading this has a year 2000 ornament, I’d love to hear about it and see it.

This is what I have come across for 2001 & 2002

2001 Bearista Elf Glass Ornament

I love this little bearista ornament. This is a blown glass ornament with great detail.  The gold’s, red’s and green’s are superb and the quality is amazing. On his back belt, the year should always be present.  No running color’s and all edges are clean.  His hat, clothing stripes and horsey wheels are all coated with red glitter.

He comes packaged in a heavy duty box carton and decorated for the holiday season.

Sold for $12.95

2002 White Abbey 1st Edition Mug Ornament

Starbucks started releasing the mug’s this year, and it has not stopped since. This was the same style as the in-store mugs that was used in early 2000’s

This is a white ceramic mug, with black lettering and marked 2002 on the bottom. The packaging for this style was not reusable.

Sold for $4.95

2002 Abbey Ornament White

2002 Red Abbey 1st Edition Mug Ornament

This is the same as the white, but this is red ceramic mug, with white lettering, also marked on the bottom is the year 2002.

This red model is rare and hard to find with the packaging in tact.

Sold for $4.95

2002 Abbey Ornament Red

2002 Chicago City Mug

Sold for $4.95

This was the only city mug I found sold in a singular package. The Skyline Series is very popular in large mugs still to this day. I have a feeling they also sold the following City’s individually – Atlanta, San Francisco, New York, Seattle, Las Vegas, and San Diego.

2002 Chicago Ornament2 2002 Chicago Ornament

The reason I believe there were more individually packed city’s, is because you’ll see in 2003 releases they bundles them together in a 4 set package. The tag has 2003 printed but all the mug bottom’s are marked 2002 Series One. And because this was packaged similar to the Abbey style’s I’m giving it a guess for consistency.

Happy hunting out there…..up next 2003

NEW FINDS 4/6/2016

I love that I am still uncovering new finds to this day. These were marketed as ornaments but I tend to include items like this in the groupings because they have a hanger and can be hung on a tree if you wanted to.

So here are 2 additions to the list

2002 Tin Ball Candy Ornament

This is not a small ornament. This is roughly 4.5″x 4.5″ but has the holidays written all over it. This was probably filled with candies when sold. I am not sure if this is a US or International Ornament, but would be a great addition to any collection

Sold for UNKNOWN


 

2002 Corduroy Stocking 

This is a corduroy stocking with red and white plaid trim. I am not sure if this stocking was sold with this tiny bear, but I tend to see them together a lot. I also have seen the stock with and without a Jingle Bell on the white cord hanger.

Sold for $4.95
