The Case of the Falala Mug

About a week ago, I was poking around Starbucks, like I frequently do, when I laid my eyes on this beauty:

(This is the only picture I can find of it! It's the cutie right in the center and comes to us courtesy of here)

I don't know what it was that drew me to it but it was instantly my favorite thing on the shelf. At the time, it wouldn't have been the soundest financial decision to buy it but I swore to myself that next time I came, it would be mine. That next time was a few days later. I was tired, cranky, in desperate need of a latte when I remembered: MY FALALA MUG! So happy!

Imagine my surprise when, literally just 3 days later, it was gone. Completely ripped off the shelf. There wasn't even one left. I was devastated until a friend of mine told me it would probably be online. A quick search verified that it wasn't there either. And so, I'm taking a break today from my horrible schedule to search for this mug so I'm not plagued with regret for not having bought it originally. But seriously, does anyone know what happened to this thing? I know Starbucks puts out more tumblers than any other store but 3 days? Really?

Any breaks in the case would be much appreciated!


  1. Been there done that =) I too never found the mug I was looking for at Starbucks and now the hope is lost, cause we dont have starbucks where I live (Norway). Until next time. Good luck onm yours.

    I follwed to btw, and maybe someday youll visit me.

  2. Oh no! :( That's a really sad story. If you'd like, I can send you one from this Christmas since no one should be without a Starbucks mug! They're pretty adorable, I think, with little birds on them :)
