June 18, 2010MCM Home Improvement: Mailboxes
By Sablemable aka Jan
I have to admit, I sweated over this topic, but, I aim to please and I hope you will enjoy my finds!
I have one of these monstrosities out front. Shamefacedly, I first adored these mailboxes, but then I saw the MCM light.
I searched the Internet looking for something new that resembled this…
And, I found the Vista Mailbox at www.morganhomeaccents.com. It’s constructed of cast aluminum (Yeah! No plastic!), and comes in a variety of colors with a powder finish coat. The price is $69.95 sans S&H.
THE VISTA MAILBOX
Of course, you’ll need a retro-style post and Morgan Home Accents has a cast aluminum post that comes in the same colors as the Vista Mailbox. Price is $179.95.
FLORAL CAST ALUMINUM POST
At www.mahvelousmailboxes.com is this monogrammed cast aluminum post. It also comes in the same colors as the Vista Mailbox. It’s price, however, is quite steep; $468.00 plus $25.00 S&H.
THE MONOGRAMMED CAST ALUMINUM POST
You’ll need a newspaper holder, too. I found the RAIN OR SHINE at www.getnewmailbox.com. Also of cast aluminum, it comes with a black post and your choice of red, yellow, white, black or green holder. The lettering colors are white, black, yellow and green and the fonts are Standard or Gothic. The price is $219.99.
THE RAIN OR SHINE NEWSPAPER HOLDER (IN GOTHIC FONT)
Sadly, I couldn’t locate any mailbox address markers that were era appropriate, but I’ll find them one of these days!
Readers, do you have plans to change your mailboxes? Tell us your plans, puleeseeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!
