Hallie and Nick continue to settle into their cute little Tudor cottage in Seattle.
A few weeks back I shared Hallie's account (here) of how they found the antique mailbox under a bush in the backyard. They decided the antique box had seen enough active service and replaced it with a new retro-styled box.
Here's what Hallie wrote in response to my question as to where she had purchased the new box:
"There's a really cool store here called Rejuvenation. I believe it's
headquartered in Portland--you can check them out online, too. They
reproduce awesome things from the past. Most things are SUPER expensive,
but for certain things I think it's worth it. The mailbox will be a
point of interest and it's nice that it's locking. It's bigger than the
original mailboxes of that style, which is good given the size/volume of
mail that is distributed these days.
"We also got some of those push
button switches for the living room. I wish I could get a part time job
at that store just to have the employee discount. I'll take you there
when you visit."
Oh Boy! I can hardly wait to go.
I remember push button switches, do you? As my parents updated their 1910 Sears Craftsman, they replaced those with toggle switches, but for a long time my dad's studio still had the push button unit. KW
