Remember those mugs I was pining for on eBay? Well, I recently went back to check, and the lot of five pear mugs sold for $110! So, readers, if you see any of those fruity Fireking mugs at tag sales, snatch them up and sell 'em on eBay. I am really floored that they went for that much.
Meanwhile I noticed that Marimekko has some pear embellished mugs, called Paaryna (I can't figure out how to type oomlats, or even spell oomlat, for that matter), in their new spring offerings that look awfully similar to my eBay babies. I'm guessing that some designer over at Marimekko had a Fireking mug around as a bit of inspiration. What do you think?
