When we decided on the fence style for the Sow's Ear, we forgot about including a letterbox into the whole scheme of things. Because of the style of fence we will be opting for a post mount letterbox which sits slightly higher than the top fence rail..
Anyway, holy letterbox choices! When I went looking on the Internet and at the letterbox shops I was hit with a plethora of choices...But not all letterboxes suit our requirements.
We don't want a letterbox which needs a key to remain shut as we like to be unimpeded when we check the mail. It needs to be large enough to accept large envelopes and small parcels (because Jason is an eBay junkie) that the Postie can leave easily.
We also want to have a slightly rounded letterbox because our fence is on a slope and was constructed following the lie of the land. We think a round letterbox would suit it best.
Anyway, here are our favourites:

|Classic post mount copper mailbox|
I don't know whether this mailbox can be shipped to Australia. Boo!
