I saw a tweet this week which seemed to strike a chord with me and one of my more recent hobbies. Since my first visit to Finland with Mrs ETS in 2008, we've been picking up a few Arabia Moomin mugs, also finding a few places that sell them in London. The collection is quite big (but not as big as Suvi's).
Well duh. Football fans are geeks and they keep memorabilia including programmes. @pwaltari @EscapeToSuomi https://t.co/Qd2iDSi5BK— Egan Richardson (@EganRichardson) December 8, 2015
Egan has mentioned on several occasions that a lot of people, including foreign visitors, would buy and keep various items of merchandise, especially mugs. I own a couple of mugs (KuPS, SJK, HJK) but thought it'd be nice to see what else is out there. So I asked on Twitter, and got some tremendous replies.
Here they are.
AC Oulu, thanks to Heikki Mertaniemi
HIFK, thanks to Henrik Fagerström
@EscapeToSuomi A cup of coffee at the office tastes so much better when consumed in my Marko Myyry mug. pic.twitter.com/NLxeS3RxCX— Pedro T (@Pedro_T1000) December 9, 2015

As you can see, there's plenty of choice available - now to start buying...
