mbta coasters

We have a ‘thing’ for coasters, as I’ve mentioned here before. Our latest addition is this set, issued by the MBTA. Each coaster represents a branch of Boston’s ‘T’ network (we’re on the Green Line, by the way).

I blame our friends Rob & Jenny for this purchase. We first spied the coasters at their place and had to have them. To be clear, we didn’t steal them! We bought our own for $19.95, from the MBTA shop.

Having finally got round to distributing some friend gifts from our last trip, we got a pleasant surprise. Lurking at the bottom of the bag, some rather fabulous coasters…

As you can see, we picked these up at the MoMA in NYC. Fitting we just found them, as I was reminded of our Eames ‘fetish’ earlier in the week when I spotted this post.
