How Did You Come To Have A Coffee Mug Collection?

The Two and a Half Men Coffee Mug

Fans of Two and a Half Men watched Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer drink coffee for years on this television sitcom. Now you can own their own set at quite a reasonable price. Amazon sells this mug as part of a set of four. Each one holds about 16-ounces of your favorite hot beverage and they are microwaveable and dishwasher safe. 

Do you think your houseguests will recognize the mug?

What Do You Put In Your Coffee Mug?

Chaleur Coffee Mugs

Chaleur has produced more than 85 of these famous artwork themed coffee mugs since they first began in 1986.  They are sturdy mugs with beautiful paintings and are microwave and dishwasher safe.  Artists included in the series are Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Georges Seurat, Paul Gaugin, Edgar Degas, Paul Cezanne, to name a few.  Each of these mugs has an artist 'signature.'

These Chaleur mugs can sell for in excess of $50 when they are out of production since they're made in limited quantities and people love to collect them all. However, the ones that are currently in production are easily affordable so that is definitely the time to buy them.  Keen collectors are careful not to miss any.

Toilet Coffee Mug by Big Mouth Toys

Why are dogs the only one allowed to dring from the toilet?

Dogs are not the only ones allowed to dring from the toilet. This Toilet coffee mug from Big Mouth Toys allows you, too, to drink from the toilet.  It wins my vote as the most unusual coffee mug I have ever seen. I have no idea if it would be comfortable to drink from but expect that whether or not it is is not important. The important thing is the entertainment value. Imagine the reaction when you pull this one out in the office coffee room.

Hi, Frank - That's quite a collection. I guess few people would have space to have that size a collection at hand & you are not the first person I have heard of who rotates them.

I've never heard a name for a mug collector and reckon we ought to create one!

Thank you for your visit & taking the time to comment.

Being from UK I consider them T Mugs unless they advertise Coffee! Any way, My collection is to good for general day to day use so stay on display. Over 600 in collection to many to put out in one go due to room so they get washed and swapped round every six months. Will find pictures and post for you at a later date. I am still trying to find out what a real mug collector is called.

Thanks for visiting, Sarah! I think that is the way most people wind up collecting coffee mugs. They're a great gift idea for a coffee lover and I love that the gift can be personalized to the recipient.

Sarah on 02/09/2014

My coffee mug collecting started off innocent enough, just an avid coffee lover searching for the perfect coffee to mouth vessel, then grew from there. Most of my "favorite" mugs have come my way through gifts from people who know I can't survive without coffee!

Hi, Doug

I love that coffee mugs are an affordable, practical and personal gift and see from your first post as "Doug" that you have discovered that, too.

I have not been very active of late on Wizzley, only because I have many projects online including numerous platforms like Wizzley and an eBay store. Therefore, I am not sure I am the best one to answer any questions as per your second post.

Hello, Brenda --

Finding your website on the Internet, I would like a little feedback about wizzley and the job they do as a home site. I want to write about my walk in Christianity and would like to use you as a referral for my website with wizzely. Please, send an email to my address and we can discuss things further. A few weeks ago I wrote asking a little about the hobby of coffee mugs and would appreciate a little input for more of a blogging perspective.

Please, respond at your convenience.

Like t-shirts, I try to buy coffee mugs that say a little about me and my interests. Now, however, I'm beginning to "hit up" thrift stores for collectible mugs. I found a wonderful mug the other day with "World's Best Teacher" and a cute cartoon pictured on both sides. It made the perfect birthday present for a "schoolmarm" sister. It was less than a dollar. Finding it has inspired me to look for other "nuggets of gold." Buying off the Internet is only for mugs of serious personal interests, eg, rail and baseball. Now, I'm on the lookout for cute, clever mugs of all kinds. I plan on displaying them on top of my kitchen cabinets.

Thanks for your comment, Mags Orrick. Sounds normal around these parts. Hope that helps, LOL!

Mags Orrick on 01/21/2013

I've loved mugs as far back as I can remember and at 33 now have a collection of over 70! I've been banned from buying more as I just can't part with any of them. The collection contains cups and mugs that remind me of special times, places and people and I have certain ones for coffee and tea alike. I pick a cup depending on my mood...this is starting to sound crazy...and have a few favourites that I rotate. Oh dear!

MugTreasuresByBrenda on 08/19/2012

Hi, Mommybull -- I've never given it much thought (but should.) I did know one lady who purchased some sort of small rack -- for 8 or so mugs and rotated the ones she displayed from her collection which was put away. And yes, she did drink from them, too. (I wondered.)
