This mailbox sent in by Diane from Big Bear, is sporting a little bear and light that is powered by a solar panel.
Jon from theconfluence.org sent in these great mailbox pictures taken in upstate New York.
When I don’t have the time to drive around and stalk mailboxes personally, I resort to the good old Google image search.
Here’s one I haven’t seen before (and I really was beginning to think I had seen them all) from a newsletter for the travel site johnnyjet.com
Ok I’m back! After a week in Maryland and battling three weeks of flu, colds and stomach virus.
Hope everyone had a better holiday and New Year’s than I did.
I wonder what the mailman thinks of this one and how long it took him to find where to put the mail? (I think the door is behind the blue bear.)
Thanks for sharing this with us, definitely one of the most original I’ve seen.
This mailbox is around the corner from me and I’ve never noticed it before because it’s not really their mailbox. They have it sitting near the front door, as if the are expecting a delivery.
Anyhow, I have no idea what school this is a mascot for? There’s an M on it. Minnesota Fighting Storks?
This Dalmation Mailbox is in front of Huffard Animal Hospital in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.
These concrete cast mailboxes are quite common in my area. The swordfish and dolphin are more common, but I’ve seen others, the snake probably the oddest. (I couldn’t get a picture of that one though. The whole family was out in the driveway and I didn’t feel like explaining what I was doing there.)
In general, I don’t find them ugly when they are left unpainted or painted in a single color. It’s when people try to “dress them up” like this that it crosses the line into tackiness. In my opinion, of course 😉
Jon P from The Confluence submitted this crazy mailbox. It belongs to someone in upstate New York. I even have the Google Map link to the exact address from Jon, so if I’m ever in the area I can check it out myself.
I wonder what the reasoning behind such a mailbox would be? Are they zoo keepers?
