    My husband & I moved to Kill Devil Hills, NC this past summer & now are starting a build on our retirement home.
    I’ve been wanting to advertise some items that I’m sure will be welcomed by many. However, I have no idea of a way to do so.
    If all advertising is done online, that’s fine.
    All I need is a web site, phone number or email to accomplish my task.
    Thank you,
    Shela Dick
