Thomas Judd's Store, Purveyors of Mercantile & Fine Confections, has been around for several generations in St. George. It is right across the street from the Town Center, and is a fun place to stop and visit while you're in the downtown area.

What makes the Thomas Judd Store unique? You can find many different types of candy and bottled soda pop here. (When I placed this box, I made sure to buy a Huckleberry Soda. YUM.) They are also known for their famous breadsticks.

Hours of operation: Monday through Saturday, 10:00-5:30. Closed Sundays.

Directions: As you enjoy sipping your cold soda, take some time to enjoy all the wonderful antique decorations in the store. When you spy the Coca Cola bucket, you might want to check out what it holds. Please be discreet when retrieving and rehiding.

Notes: It seems that the decorations in the store change periodically, and that the box is no longer in the train coal car, nor the Coca Cola bucket anymore. The letterbox is a small black wooden box. The store isn't big, so finding it shouldn't be too much of an issue. If all else fails, ask the workers in the store-- the management is aware of the existence of the box, so maybe they can point you in the right direction.
