Cool Post Boxes Built To Last

5 Reasons Why Post Boxes Are Cool

The excitement and anticipation that comes with owning a post box is hugely addictive and should not be underestimated. We love the sense of mystery and intrigue they lend to such a simple everyday activity as collecting the mail. Has the post man been on his morning round? Has the long-awaited postcard from your best friend arrived? How about the gig tickets you’ve been expecting for months or festive greetings from friends and family?

Let’s face it, there’s just so much more enjoyment involved in checking a post box than there is in scooping up crumpled and torn letters from the floor. And, who out there doesn’t like to dream that there might be an unexpected card from a loved one (or a tax rebate from HMRC) waiting for them when they lift the lid?

Post boxes are cool and we can’t get enough of them. Here’s why…

1. They look great.
