Mailboxes are technically federal property but homeowners are responsible for buying them. As long as it is functional, and meets the post office’s criteria, owners have a creative license to do what they want with their mailbox. Here are some of the creative mailboxes Epoch Times found around Orange County—but it’s by no means a complete list. If you have an interesting mailbox and want to share it, send a photo to orange@epochtimes.com with the photographer’s name, the address, and when the photo was taken.
