I'm suddenly on a vintage mail box kick. It's my new obsession. Now I must find the perfect one for my home!
I came across this classic, blue vintage mail box over the weekend at an estate sale. It's not the style for outside my house so I put it in my shop, but it got me thinking; what other amazing vintage and mid century style mail boxes are out there?
While it's perfectly functional as a mail box it would also be cool art for inside the home. Use it in your office to store magazines or mail. I've seen these repurposed as planters and waste baskets. With it's striking blue color and red flag I could see this box as decor in a minimalist loft. So many uses!
Here are some other mail boxes I love that I've just come across this morning:
Atomic Ranch Style Vintage Mail Box by MsAtomic $18.99
Mid Century Modern Copper Mailbox by Vintage Modern Design $55
Umbra POSTINO Stainless Steel Retro Modern Mailbox $90
Mid Century Modern Mailbox on Ebay $375
