Mail Boxes, Etc.

” Mail Boxes , Etc. ”

As a young teenager, I was always looking for a way to come up with a few extra bucks to make ends meet. One of my earliest little business’ that I tried was ” painting mail boxes ” . I had noticed that all over the area where I lived that most of the mail boxes were in terrible condition. Some were almost falling over, holes in the box, dirty, rusty and more. So I took out on the road to see what happened. Business was pretty good from the start. After buying some stencil letters from Sears Roebuck, paint and brushes I painted lots that summer. I certainly made the area somewhat better looking too.
