Earlier this month, I dropped by the Starbucks Coffee Gear store. This store is located at 2401 Utah Avenue South, 8th Floor, Seattle, Washington, 98134.

I regularly get emails from people asking me how do they purchase the items that I show off in my Coffee Gear Store articles. There are only two ways to shop at the Coffee Gear Store:

  • You can go in person, Monday through Friday, normal business hours. Since I live in Seattle, this is how I visit the Coffee Gear Store. It’s open to the public. You are welcome to shop there in person!
  • You can shop the online Coffee Gear Store. It’s very important to note that you must be a partner – that is you are an actual employee of Starbucks – to shop via the online Coffee Gear Store. Customers, such as myself, cannot shop the online store.

I periodically have people tell me that they make a trip to the Coffee Gear Store part of their vacation plans, when planning a trip to Seattle!

Right now there are new key chains, some cute little flashlights, kid’s green aprons, new t-shirts and much more:

Leave a comment on this blog article before 5:00 AM (PST), March 31, 2016. Tell me what you’d like to fill your lunch and tote bag up with. There’s a catch – take a look at the photo and try to imagine the size the of the tote and lunch bag. Everything you pick to fill up your tote and/or lunch bag (you can write about either one) has to be found inside of a Starbucks store.If what you pick to fill up your tote is not currently found inside of a Starbucks store within the United States, it doesn’t count. So maybe what you’d want to do is grab an Evolution Fresh juice for your lunch tote? Or a pound of coffee for the larger tote bag? (Let me suggest Caffe Verona!) Only one entry per person. You must be over 18 to enter. You must have an address within the United States to enter. Please allow at least 2 weeks for shipping. I only go to the post office once a week, so me shipping things out can be slow. Be patient.  The winner will be drawn at random. I’m just going to write names on little cards, throw them in a bag, and randomly select a winner. While you do have to follow the above rules, what you write will not affect your odds of winning. If there are more than 200 comments on this blog, any entries above the 200th comment do not count and are not a valid entry.

I have to tell you that the Coffee Gear Store donated product to make this giveaway happen. My enthusiasm for their merchandise is not because they donated items above for the giveaway, as well as gave me a few free items this month. But in any case, when I get something free, you need to know.

Good luck!
