|From my days as Publisher of the Waurika News-Democrat|
I don't deliberately collect coffee cups...they just seem to accumulate...gifts from family, students, ex-students and other friends, souvenirs from places visited. Word gets around and soon someone gives me another one. Most are now stored in a cabinet pantry, but there's always a healthy supply in the kitchen. And they hold more than coffee, serving as receptacles of pens and brushes and other whatnot in the home office, art studio and certainly my office at UCO.
One of two favorite cups is the one I designed and ordered as a subscription promotion years ago when I owned the Waurika News-Demcorat. The cups were given free with renewals, and were a huge success. I still have a few, and they always collect coffee and other stuff.
And my coffee cups hold more than coffee or hot tea. Here's my watercolor brush holder.
And I have several cups and mugs from other newspapers, the press association and broadcast. But that's another post.
