We had some fun Tuesday at the expense of a line of souvenir style coffee mugs for sale at Bartell’s celebrating the various neighborhoods of Seattle from, um, Bellevue to the University District thanks to a tweet from @letterboxed:
Astonishingly ugly Seattle neighborhood mugs at Bartell Drugs. Also, pro tip, First Hill & Capitol Hill are different hills. You’re welcome
The mugs were the fastest selling item I’ve had in years-guess you’re not the demo. I could’ve sold 4x what I ordered
Clearly we don’t know shit about merchandising — we’ve sold about 10 of these over the years. Bartell’s we raise a mug to you (but not one with those weird curved lips — don’t like those).
