The Four Tendencies “Upholder” Mug

Sonja Ralston
Quality mug; cute design

I bought this as a gift for a friend. She loves it. The design is subtle, stylish enough for the office. The mug holds up well to the microwave and is easy to clean. On sale, it was a great value.

Love this mug!

This mug is a little bit bigger than a standard one, perfect for a large coffee in the mornings or a hot chocolate at night. Heavy enough that it feels substantial, nice colour, love that the bottom is textured. I get a boost just from pulling it out of the cupboard!

Cheryl Rodeheffer
Perfect size and weight

This was a birthday gift for my sister -- she squealed when she opened it! Went on and on about that she loves it's substantial without being too heavy or too big. She loves the feel of it.
