    ISU Mailbox

    Does anyone know where I can find an ISU mailbox? I have checked all of the usual places(mall, scheels etc). and have struck out. I want a red one and not just a cover up for my old black one that the house came with. It is the typical round top style that mounts on a post.

    Re: ISU Mailbox

    I'd say try looking ebay or half.com style for that. If you're in the Central Iowa area, and/or make it up to Ames every once in a while, I know I've seen them at a couple stores around Ames. I think HyVee Drugstore had one, and I saw one atanother store around main street, but can't remember which one. If I remember, I'll post it...

    Send JP a message and tell him Clone mailboxes are back in style now that we have some better coaches.

    A helmet:



    Or just a cover:


    That's all I could Google.

    Perhaps you could take a plain black one, paint it or have it painted and add an appropriate decal?

    Re: ISU Mailbox

    Last year for my birthday my mom got me an ISU red metal "rural" mailbox (just means it's a little bigger than normal). REALLY sharp looking. I'll ask her where she got it and post back. When I lived in Ames, I thought I remembered seeing them at Lowe's. Might also want to look at Earl May - they have some ISU landscaping stuff.

    I've seen a nice metal one at the HyVee Drugstore (old Drug Town) on the corner of Main and Clark in Ames. I believe it was only about $25.

    They have also had a ANSI certified Cyclone hardhat for those of you that wear those on occasion.
