After a fruitless search for old mailboxes for sale, I emailed my church listserv to see if anyone could give some hints. Instead, I got offers for 3 old mailboxes and a fourth offer to salvage a discarded one from roadside. Wonderful! I accepted 2 mailboxes.
The green one from Roger and Rosalyn, tucked in next to the raspberries and the overflow compost bin, holds my garden tools and gloves.
The adorable old house from Sheldon and Naomi keeps the miscellaneous bunny supplies together: comb, clippers, leashes, and treats.
Our church listserv is an incredibly useful resource. Offers, answers, questions, and events are posted frequently. People find housing, vacations, tickets, and lost items, thanks to the listserv. Does someone need plants? Just email the listserv - I'm dropping off hostas today to a church friend, with a promise for irises once they're done blooming.
