Our potter has shipped the 2015 collector's mug to me and it will soon be available for purchase. I'm keeping the design a secret for just a bit longer until it arrives, but will tell you it is quite different from the 2014 edition. All mugs are limited in number and all are identified by year on the mug front. This one marks the second edition and we plan to continue with a new mug color and style each year. If you are starting a collection and don't have the first edition (2014) I still have some of these remaining, but not many. We held a few back for replacements or for those who were latecomers.

The 2015 edition should start shipping next week. The price is yet to be set, but should remain close to the 2014 cost. All purchases must be made through PBS home office, and please contact them at 704-664-2534 to buy.

Watch for the picture of the latest mug very soon. In the meantime, here's the 2014 edition which is now out of production.

Thanks for following through Kevin. We were wondering about this at the Baltimore OYG a few weeks ago. Looking forward to the newest edition.

Can't wait, these are quality mugs! Producing a new mug each year is a great idea

Everyone who wants a mug (or multiples) needs to call Brenda at home office to order and pay for their mug. Once Brenda receives pmt (and notifies me) I will ship the mugs.

Thanks

PS...pics coming but right now I have coffee to finish. :D

Beautiful Kevin, thanks for all the work you put into it. Just put my name on the list with the home office. Will someone post this over on FB too?

Appreciate this guys.

The new mug is about 2 oz bigger than the 2014 edition and has a sort of tankard shape to it. Bigger handle and nice rim; this mug feels great in my hand.

Important to realize that these mugs are fairly expensive for PBS to have made, hence the price of $29 each shipped. They are a great promotional item for PBS and everybody has loved them so far. My time and energy spent picking out the mug style, color, and then dealing with the order is all donated. I also handle all the wrapping, boxing and shipping (trips to the post office) on my own time. I enjoy the mugs...the project...and doing something to help the PBS.

I know this doesn't have to be said, but I'm going to anyway.

Thank you Kevin for all you do for the PBS! From the donated alligator hunts to your expertise in coordinating all the logistics for the "Lung Blood" mug. I know you do much more as well.

The PBS is definitely a better organization thanks to you and the many others like you!

PS - We all know this wasn't a "fishing" post. That's just not who you are! :D

Now I need to make a phone call! Thanks for the reminder!

Terry, it's guys like you who give me inspiration to contribute. I consider myself lucky to know and keep so many good people as my friends.

Anyway....

A bunch of mug orders to fill now! I remind everyone to call our home office (Brenda) and place your order. If you're thinking about starting a collection, I still have some 2014 mugs but not many.

Thanks so much for doing this again Kevin. My 2014 mug has been my morning companion every day but I'm looking forward to retiring it to a shelf and putting the new one to use. The extra 2 ounces is a nice bonus!

Kevin, mug arrived today safe and sound. Great packaging. Mug is awesome. I prefer this style to last years for drinking. You did good. Thanks

Appreciate the comments here, and the PMs I've received. Last year's mug was a hit and 2015 is looking good. I'm shipping about 20 mugs out today and the orders are rolling.

Cheers...

When I find a combination I like, I stick to it. I have once again found a killer combination with these three: mug; instant coffee; coconut milk. To me the only thing better than instant coffee, is a fresh cup of French-pressed Kona Peaberry coffee.

I thought my 2014 mug was the ultimate, then came 2015. That just tells me, I need to prepare to bring another one home in 2016, if Kevin keeps hitting each one out of the park.

Kev, I got the mugs yesterday. One will be on it's way to Italy next week. Thanks again for taking on this project. I know it's time consuming. I know you know what I mean when I say that volunteering usually costs me money!
