For the last 11 years we've lived in cities in the US and in Mexico that don't have mailboxes. We're newbies to Gulfport and amused and delighted by the mostly home-grown artistic mailboxes. I took these photos within a 3 block radius of our home.

Hope the link works:

I think it is a artsy Salt Life type of thing. They are pretty cool. I like one's self expression.

Salt life stickers are the opposite of SELF expression, self expression can't be prepackaged.

Sure it can, if it happens to match what you like. I didn't even know there was merchandise behind it. I thought it was just a saying when I bought it.

Love those mailboxes, Gulf. It must be a Gulfport thing.

Looks cool for certain neighborhoods - wouldn't work in mine since it "doesn't conform" - I'm okay with that. That's exactly why I live where I live. But I agree - it has that Salt Life laid back mentality.

The mailboxes are cute! My favorite is the manatee one.

I love those! I've seen this - in Key West. That (mailboxes) and house numbers. Alot of the homes and cottages had ceramic or terra cotta plaques or number squares posted in the front entry area. Some of them were very colorful and artsy.

If you tried to put up a cute mail box outside of a nice "beach town", you'd probably get some punk hitting it with a baseball bat.

Those are some great mailboxes. My neighbor across the street built one. It is a railroad caboose. Ive seen some other manufactured boxes, like a manatee holding the box and stuff like that.

Beats the bland mail boxes for sure.

I have a question rather than starting a new thread since it's sort of the same - is it a St. Pete (Florida?) thing to have the cobblestone/brick-layed streets? I just love that look and noticed it's in the Old Northeast section as well.
