Show Us Your Unusual Mailbox! This One Really Cleans Up!

While driving around Springfield MO showing real estate and homes for sale, we sometimes see very unusual mailboxes along the country roads. We've seen lots of strange mailboxes but this one we saw today ranks up there with the downright bizarre! I won't disclose the exact location to protect the innocent but lets just say its SW of Springfield MO about 30 miles. 

Unusual Mailbox


We've seen "air mail" boxes on a tall pole, boxes shaped like a giant bass, on giant springs, tires, and many other "artistic" holders. Show us your unusual mailboxes!

Oh my. Is that a permanet one? Better, though, than toilets as planters. Yes, in my hometown, there was someone who tested the codes enforcement by using old toilets for planters in the front yard! They said they couldn't do anything about it. This was in a densly populated area of middle class (I hate that term) homes.

I like this. I live in southern California where all the houses are beige, the roofs are red tile and the mailboxes are white on a white wooden post. Nice to see some uniqueness.

Different but not something I would like to see a lot of.  Also would not fly in my area as the snow plows need to get closere that this allows. lol

That's different!  I don't believe I've seen a washing machine as a mailbox before.
