I love reader-submitted content and ideas! I very recently received three different emails all containing images for me to share here at StarbucksMelody.com.  Your comments on this site and emails are what keep me going! Thank you.  My email address is Sbux206@StarbucksMelody.com.  Please feel free to contact me with tips, ideas, or whatever your random thoughts are on Starbucks.  And of course I invite you to leave your thoughts in the comments too.

By way of background, the two blog posts that inspired the three emails to me are these:

  • Starbucks barista chalk art – This has been an enormously popular blog post here at this site. It features reader-submitted chalkboard art.
  • Collecting Starbucks cards – This blog has a number of Starbucks cards featured in it, including a few with Howard’s signature on them.

One reader wrote to me that he enjoys going into a Starbucks and seeing creative barista chalk art.  He said he happened to be in a Starbucks in the area of Fourth and Blanchard on the day of the Seattle Pride parade (June 27, 2010) and saw this chalk art.  I love this! I am so glad he snapped a photo of it and sent it my way.  My understanding is that this art was only up in the store for a very brief time:

Two other readers wanted to share a few images of Starbucks cards they’ve been collecting over the years.  From the group of cards below, I hear that the Walt Whitman card ended up being far more popular than Starbucks ever anticipated and is considered to be one of the most “collectible” from the collection below.  I have to admit that I really like that one.  On the other hand (though not nearly as rare) there is something very comforting about the card with the image of the red comfy chair.  I just want to go sit down in it!

I am thrilled to be able to show off these super unique cards:  Enjoy!
