Sparking joy with personalised postboxes and house signs!

Posted on the 5th of Aug 2020



It has been a long time since my last post because we really have been very busy bees at the foundry and have been hand crafting and dispatching some stunning postboxes and signs for our lovely customers. We’ve had some wonderful feedback too reflecting the joy that owning one of our hand crafted items sparks! We had to share:

Judith’s Rockbox slimline goes down a storm in Oxfordshire Hello Alice.    I just wanted to let you know that the post box arrived last week and we are absolutely thrilled with it.   The colours are exactly as I hoped they would be and the post box  so well made.    We are just waiting for our builder to fix it into position.   I will send you a photo so that you can see it in all it’s glory !  

Jo’s reaction to her built-in postbox  “It’s arrived safe and sound and we love it – thank you! x”

A note from Alan (who may or may not have bribed me with chocolate biscuits …) ”  Morning  Mrs Hobnob !!! Sign arrived Safe and Sound. Looks good. Many Many Thanks

Katie from London was thrilled with the craftsmanship of her sign Just want you to know the sign came out amazing! Thank you for all your great work. It was definitely worth the wait.

Edwin loved his hanging sign Alice,  Just a quick note to let you know the sign arrived safely this pm. All is well and the sign is great, thank you.

James, from Harrogate, was very pleased with his standard built-in postbox too (they are fab)  Hi Alice, Quick message to say received at this end- it looks amazing. Can’t wait to get it set in our wall. Will follow up with a pic when it’s in. Thank you and enjoy this mini heatwave!!Glebe-web
