Summertime, and the livin’s easy…

The long, hazy days of summer have arrived in full force on the Outer Banks. We might have even thrown in a couple of tropical storms for good measure! Along with them, you should have received your latest box subscription. 

We at the OBXBox hope you are happy with this season’s selections. I just wanted to take a moment to tell you a bit about this box’s vendors.
