I just wanted to share a project I finished not long ago. In December I bought a rather tired looking vintage post office. Structurally it was good but the posters, sign and awning were quite tatty and it was looking unloved. So I removed and scanned the posters, awning and sign and edited them on the computer to fix all the crease lines and torn corners. Then I had it printed at a professional printing service so the colours would be accurate.
Then I wallpapered and made lots of little bundles of letters and packages for Willowtree Gully’s busy post office. (I also painted the little wall shelf so it would roughly match the rest of the fitout). I didn’t think to take photos of the progress sadly, I will try to do this on future projects. I know I love seeing works in progress from other collectors.
I was setting it up and popped the nearest figure, Angus Buttercup, behind the counter to see how things looked and I immediately loved him there. I know Angus is not a traditional post office dweller but in our village he is definitely the postmaster! He loves his Post Office and is proud of how busy and efficient it is. Sam and Pete are the postmen who do the deliveries and they make a fab team. Their claim to fame is that they have never lost a single letter or missed a day of delivery!
Angus is a dedicated post-master. He loves his job.
There are lots of letters and packages to weigh, sort, and stamp. They’ve got to be sorted each day ready to go out for delivery! (Also can see the restored sign here).
Thanks for looking. 🙂
