Have you seen one of these around?

A coworker and I bumped into one yesterday on Kellog in Downtown St. Paul.

They're really cute! I wonder how many are out there.

I thought I heard 400 nationwide. I'll never see one in my little town.

Did you see the one outside of the West building downtown? I saw that one on St. Paddy's Day and was charmed! What a great campaign for the post office.

Thanks for sharing. I was reading about them a while back but never actually saw one myself.

Cool! I was wondering if we'd see any here...

Oh how cool! So this isn't artistic grafitti, it's commissioned by the USPS?

Way better than endless iterations of Peanuts characters.

Yep, R2D2 boxes...to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first Star Wars movie.

Which I saw in Capitol Hill in Denver, Colorado on a very nice summer evening with my good friend Steven Chain. To whom I have owed a letter for the past many months.

I think they allowed smoking in the balconies in those days.
