See what I’ve got! This year is the 15th anniversary of Manchester Christmas Markets!
They have an environmentally friendly deposit scheme, so they changed the paper cup into the glass or mug.
The blue one is from mulled wine and white one is from hot chocolate or coffee.
Basically the stall will give you the mug at first time with two pounds included, and if you don’t want it, you can return it to the same stall and get your £2 back; they also have the glass with £1 which come with beer, but I prefer the cute mug. : )
Oh, how lovely and warm to have this mug on the street !
