As a mid-century modern enthusiast, I was frustrated when I couldn't find a mailbox that complemented the mid-century aesthetic of our recently renovated home. In the fall 2013 issue of Atomic Ranch, a reader asked: "Do you know of a good source of '50s period mailboxes?" The editor replied: "...the retro market seems to be wide open."
That was my aha moment!
With an entrepreneurial spirit (from starting a coffeehouse to renovating homes), a background in finance, and a love for good design, I started modbox USA. The result? I've designed a retro mid-century modern mailbox inspired by mailboxes produced during the 1950s and 60s!
