As I was searching for cool Vrspa gifts I came across this Starbucks coffee mug. I guess it's now a collectible since I could not find one under $70.00.

I guess I am lucky to have one already. But I must admit I am thinking about parting with it. $$$

or coffee in the cup. Like my scooter these are getting used, but seem to be "holding their resale value" quite nicely. And like my scooter they do their intended job well.

And like my scooter, I wish I had a couple more

So true! Laughing emoticon

I'm drinking from my fancy starbucks mug right now, but it was a gift from a friend a couple of years ago. I'm positive she didn't spend anywhere near $70 for it!

Debbie will happily part with her four mugs for $50 each. And she'll throw in this scooter glass (which actually is a Vespa) for the bargain price of $25! LOL

Paros is a "Starbucks Free Zone" (along with any other chains), but have a nice serving tray, from a local shop, for our mugs.

AV do you want a vespa mug? I can send you a new one? Got three. Sadly it does have the name Starbucks in the back but you can turn the cup forward when drinking from it so you don't have to see the name. Laughing emoticon

Thanks, Judy, but we will pass. The mates to that tray are available in espresso and cappuccino sizes, which I would prefer. However, we would have to toss something to make room for them, as our kitchen and cabinetry are quite compact. Come for a Greek Island Rally and see for yourself.

The thought is appreciated.

$70US I would be willing to sell or trade my Starbucks scooter mug for the Starbucks Komodo mug. If you think 70 is ridiculous the Komodo goes for $90+

This reminds me of when someone tells the guy in Pawn Stars that something sells for $some-insane-number on the internet. "Is it what they're asking, or what they're getting?"
Much like those mugs, about seventy five percent of the craigslist ads for Vespas and Harleys are also priced at $some-insane-number, but payback's a mother, so they get to spend all day fielding calls from people who want to give them a couple guns, a van that doesn't run but you can fix it up and make some real money, then make payments for the $200 balance, or make $pay-me-to-take-it sort of offers.

Suspect that there are more than 17 represented in this forum alone. I've got 2, one in Houston and one in Breckenridge. My husband brought me a latte in bed for my birthday last Sunday.
