One of the many reasons I love what I do is getting to constantly meet people that I likely wouldn’t have met otherwise – interesting people with big ideas and big guts to follow their dreams. Talk about an inspiring line of work.
Some of those people are Elle & Virden Hargrove. Last year, I did a story for Mississippi Magazine on Elle & Virden’s Birmingham-based company, Asher Riley. Inspired by preppy styles and prints, the Hargroves took a leap of faith, followed their dreams and went all in on their new company, where they sell handmade, high-quality needlepoint belts, bowties and dog collars. So in the spirit of following your dreams and in the spirit of the season of giving, Elle & Virden are giving the gift of this needlepoint dog collar to one lucky reader. All you have to do is like Asher Riley on Facebook and leave a comment here telling us what dream you’re chasing! It’s that simple! Winner will be chosen at random. This giveaway closes Friday, December 13th at noon central time. In the meantime, go do some shopping at Asher Riley for all those preppy people on your list!
