Where to buy illy cups ?

 There's several sources online to buy Illy art cups from :

USA

  • Ebay.com – I believe this will not surprise anyone  , but so far I would consider it the best location to find illy cups . But be aware - some prices can go through the roof.
  • Illy USA – Illy is selling collection cups thru their own side. Important notice – quantities are really limited and stock is changed recently . For example , Anish Kappoor illy cup VENEZIA special edition was exported to US with quantity of 50! and was sold out in less than minute. It’s always good idea to buy new collections from Illy , as soon as it’s going out . ( Better to buy several – so maybe in a future you will be able to Trade it J )
  • Craigslist.org – In very rare occasion somebody is selling cups , but still good place to check.
  • E-Commerce – There are several e-stores that are selling Illy cups that good to mention . Example : 1st in Coffee has all the latest cups .Prices are similar to illy USA , but you are saving on tax and shipping.
  • USA Collectors – Unfortunately can call only one site . Ann and Andy's Illy Cups collection.
  • Please check specialty shops – sometimes you will be able to find some collection there , some suggestions : Italyan food shops , coffee shops specialized on illy products and art and design.

 Go Internationally !

  • European Ebay sites : Ebay.de , Ebay.nl, Ebay.it , Ebay.es , Ebay.uk ,  – oh well , so many opportunities , but shipping cost can kill the deal . Please make sure to contact seller before you are bidding on a item and double check shipping cost . The prices are varies , but in general, good shipping ranges are  :
          • euro 16.90 for 2KG
          • euro 35.00 for 5KG
          • euro 45.00 for 10KG
          • euro 65.00 for 20KG

    Because price of shipping is high ,it would be good idea to combine shipping , working with seller to reduce the price. Be       aware : not everyone in Europe is speaking English . If you want to send message  on native language if possible.

  • Europe Illy official sites – There are separate European illy sites that are selling illy art collection.  The stock are different from site to site . Some sites have one collection , but not another , package is different ,  price sometime is different as well ! Drawback – most of them are not shipping internationally . But if you have friends or family in Europe , ask them for help !
  • Specialized Shops – There are special e-shop specialized on selling Illy Art Collection cups. One of the most popular is Dutch Illy art Collection site . They are selling many collection cups , including many rear ones . Prices are usually high , but they are running promotion sometimes , making deal sweater.
  • European Collectors –  Most of the collectors are looking for special cups.Trading option as usually preferable , but they also ready to sell some parts of their collection as well . Prices are negotiable, so use your charm ! Very good example of such site Collector site Warta BV .
  • Shops – when you travel in Europe, stop by illy coffee shop – you can be pleasantly surprised.

Be aware -  U.S. Customs and Border Protection holds YOU liable for the payment of duty not the seller. Rates are varying depending on price and country of origin ( for package less than $200 is free ,for packages of $200-$1250 is around $25 ) .

There are probably many more sources , and I hope you can help  to fulfill this list !  Please post your comments to expand this list !
