  • Some local thrift store have bulletin boards. You would find a receptive audience there. Besides the places named, can you call into a local radio sales show? Put up a notice at the local senior center and any college campuses. If you have friends working at big companies with employee newsletters I have had great fast results from those in the past, as well as a local hospital. Ask a nurse next time you are in.
    And never understimate a table and sign on the front lawn. I look every time.
