Hi there, Kami here! I’m thrilled to be regularly posting here on Make and Takes. I’m a big fan of Marie and all the goodness shared daily on Make and Takes.

Okay, let’s get to it!

Nothing says “Happy Valentine’s Day” like little pink mailboxes with little red flags. As an avid thrifting maven, I’ve noticed that little collections start once you are on the look out. Take for instance: Little Mailboxes. If you see them as they are in the thrift store, it’s hard to see the potential. But once they are all lined up with a fresh coat of Gloss Candy Pink and their little red flags up… behold the cuteness!

Here’s a look at some of them before the coat of Gloss Candy Pink. Here is the beauty of thrifting: one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

The options are endless with these little pink mailboxes:

  • Fill them with love notes during the days leading up to the big day.
  • Line them up as Valentines decor.
  • Decorate them with little foam stickers.
  • Deliver them filled with sweets to your sweet.
