Bank by mail

My friends over at "Stamps at Distinction" have a great article about the bank that was sent -- brick by brick -- through the mail. using Parcel Post.

A businessman in Vernal, UT, wanted to build a building that would include a bank. But the bricks were being manufactured in Salt Lake City -- 120 miles away. The freight charges were expensive for the short trip -- so the smart man figured that the mail would be cheaper.

He packaged up the bricks in 50 pound packets and mailed them off.

Read the rest of the story here.

With gas prices the way they are today, wouldn't it make sense for more companies to consider sending more of there items through the mail?

What's the most unique thing you've seen sent by the mail recently?
