Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : October 2008

WHAT DOES YOUR NAPERVILLE MAILBOX SAY ABOUT YOU?

I enjoy taking walks around the neighborhood with my camera.  As a former runner with knee issues, I still enjoy getting out and enjoying the fresh air...

Walking is low impact, it can be social, and it doesn't cost anything.  It's just nice getting out of the house...

I lived awhile back in the Wheatland South neighborhood in Naperville.  I would walk those streets with family, and one day, armed with my camera, noticed a nice variety of mailboxes...

Now I haven't seen any studies, but I believe one's mailbox tells a lot about who they are...

Private?  Outgoing?  Pet loving?  Modern?  Classic?

So many different types of mailboxes.  So many different types of people...

 

Mailbox in Naperville

-Do you think the owner of this mailbox has any pets? 

 

Mailbox in Naperville

-This mailbox is perfect for the security conscious.  Perhaps they have had a mailbox taken out by local kids having some "fun".

 

Mailbox in Naperville

-This mailbox looks basic enough.  Crisp and clean, the bright white color and synthetic makeup causes it to stand out from the rest. 

 

Mailbox in Naperville

-This mailbox has certainly seen better days.  There are some large dents in the side.  I think some children have been practicing there rock throwing on this one!

 

Mailbox in Naperville

-This double mailbox shouldn't be messed with.  That is a serious wooden post.  Could be an environmentalist...

 

Mailbox in Naperville

-Ahhh.  A lovely pair of cardinals (the state bird of Illinois).  I think it's interesting that the male birds have such beautiful colors.

 

Mailbox in Naperville

-This charming mailbox, has a chimney and cedar shingles.  I was surprised to see the home didn't also have a cedar roof.

 

Mailbox in Naperville

-What do you think this owner does in his spare time?  What would a bass this size weigh?  Do you think the neighbors appreciate this mailbox as much as I?:) 

 

What does your mailbox say about you?
