Do You Have an Interesting 
Mailbox / Letterbox Story? Do Tell!

Do you have a funny story about your mailbox / letterbox? Or a photo of an unusual, creative, decorative, sad or funny mail box you’ve seen? Share your story here.

This website is where I share my letterbox stories with you. I also show examples of mail boxes that I see around where I live and on my travels. I’m hoping to inspire your mail box creation or purchase, or simply to entertain you!

Now I’d like to turn the tables and hear from you. What’s your mail box story? For example...

  • Why did you replace your current letterbox?

  • How did you choose your current mail box?

  • If you bought it where did you buy it from and what was your experience of buying and installing it?

  • If you made your own, how did you go about it?

Or, perhaps you’ve seen a great mail box or a comment-worthy mail box in your neighbourhood. Take a picture and tell us about it here.

Share Your Mailbox Photos & Story

I’m looking forward to seeing your mailbox / letterbox photos and reading your story about them.

For example, tell us about the context: does the mailbox suit the house and the environment its in? What do you think about it? Where is it (country, state, town)?

If it's your mailbox, why did you choose this one?

If you made it, tell us a bit about what was involved, what materials you used, and so on.

The more you can tell us, the better.

Thanks in advance for sharing.
