Maybe it’s because my Hubs is a mailman. Or maybe because I am so attentive to curb appeal and architecture of homes. But I think these knoblochmailboxes.com are so cool! (And maybe it’s because “Knobloch” sounds somewhat Scottish, of which I am and love everything related to).
Tell me that isn’t cool. They are popular in Europe, and just starting to catch on here in the United States. But I like them because they are quirky, so different from the boring basic post boxes that have been around for centuries here. I like a good, quirky mailbox. And there’s nothing like one of these wild ones to throw your postman in a tizzy (mailmen are notorious for loving the status quo). I mean, HOW do you USE the thing?? Isn’t that cool– you don’t even know how to use it at first glance! It’s a puzzle!
Actually, its not too hard. With this model, there’s a slot where the mailman pops in the post. You unlock the door and it swings open. It’s made of metal so its durable, and can hold a lot of mail. I think it’s neat. There are other styles, including some of the more traditional styles we recognize, but this one appeals to me because it’s so avant garde.
What do you think? Do you like the box? Do you think your mailman would like it?
