This mailbox holder is adorable. As I live in a guest house, I use it as an actual mailbox. The top rolls back to reveal a mail slot and the front opens so that you can retrieve your letters. Adorable.
I recommend buying this in the store if you can so that you can inspect it. There were a couple in the store that either had a messed up latch or the script was crooked. We found a good one. We replaced our old mailbox with this one (it's on a post on our porch). The mail gets dropped in through the top, and the front opens for easy access, with a magnetic latch. It works well. It doesn't lock, however. It looks cute if you put your address on 'vintagey' paper with fancy script in the metal card holder on the front.
When I got it in the mail, the large door was tilted and therefore, couldn't close. We had to knock it back in place and it then began to work normally. However, I put a few magazines in there but they kept falling out because the magnet holding the door shut was not strong enough to hold against the three magazines. The only way it works now is it I put mail in there in a specific way so it doesn't fall out. Otherwise, I've gotten many compliments on it and many people who've seen it at my house want it themselves. You can make the call but personally, I do not believe it is worth the $40.
