The great mailbox swap


Wave goodbye to the boring old aluminum mailbox we used to have, and say hello to our newest pride and joy – an antique cast iron mailbox made by Griswold Mfg of Erie PA:

The photo is a little fuzzy, but you can see that it’s marked “Standard, No. 2”. The little floral piece at the bottom flips up, probably to let you know the mailman has indeed left you a very important letter of correspondence. Or in our case, a Home Depot bill.

I found it at our favorite neighborhood antique store, The Silver Lining. I was there browsing when a dealer brought it in to show the owner, and I’ve been craving a cool antique mailbox for a while now. Obviously, it was destined to be mine!

How cute is that mailbox!! Its a nice size too! I’ve had an eye out for an antique mail slot but have been finding them too small to handle all of my “modern” mail.

So cute! I wish we could have a wall-mount mailbox like that.

We love to hear from you, dear readers.
