  • Surprise Celebration for The Mailbox Ballard’s 20 Years in business.

    Giant smiles from Sasha, Ferrol, and Jen!

    Giant smiles from Sasha, Ferrol, and Jen!

    This past Saturday, Ferrol was surprised with a 20th Anniversary celebration dinner by a group of her Mailbox family.  Included in the surprise were amazing custom cupcakes from ‪#‎cupcakeroyale‬ featuring our very own Aero! We simply could not stop marveling at their artistry – those are hand-piped puppies y’all! And, of course they were absolutely delicious. Hard to choose a favorite between the Red Velvet and the Royale with Cheese … we cannot resist the cream cheese frosting on both!

    Congratulations all around!  ‪#‎mailbox20years‬

    Thank you for over 20 years serving Ballard

    You may have noticed that we’ve had a bit of a face-lift to mark our upcoming anniversary on May 6th for 20 years in business.


    In 1996, Ferrol started The Mailbox with a goal to become our neighborhood’s central shipping services provider, featuring expert advice delivered by friendly professionals.

    Over the past 20 years we have accomplished that and more. From the robust retail section featuring locally-made gifts and goods to our fabled holiday hot cider, we’ve built a community of friends and neighbors that enriches our experience and, most days, feels like an extended family.

    It has truly been an honor to be on this journey with our community and their furry family members.

    We look forward to sharing new experiences with all of you in the years ahead.

    Thank you for over 20 years serving Ballard
