Hey, FOLKs! Editor Ben Ashby here...

As we prepare for our national launch with Issue V in May, I thought having a few giveaways to celebrate and get the word out about FOLK Magazine would be FUN for everyone! I am going to be hosting a variety of giveaways here on the blog. And oh, you are going to LOVE these!

I have put together over $1,000 dollars worth of prizes! Not just little things either... I have bags, luggage, bow ties, gift sets, and all sorts of fun things. The best part is that everything is MADE-in-AMERICA and by small businesses. Who wouldn't want to win that?!

One goal of our giveaways is to increase our blog followers/members. We currently have 530 members. Once we reach 750 members, I am going to be giving away the purse below to one lucky FOLK Magazine SUBSCRIBER!

The hand bag was designed by the ever-sweet Jeanne Oliver of Jeanne Oliver designs. We absolutely love Jeanne and her products. The hand bag is made of vintage fabric, was part of a limited run, and is perfect for the coming spring and summer months. The hand bag retails for $89.00 — but you could win it for free!

How to enter the giveaway:

Be a MEMBER / FOLLOWER of the FOLK blog. The Google friend connect button is on the blog sidebar, so reader subscribers will need to click on the blog itself in order to follow.

Then share the blog with all of your friends (via twitter, pinterest, facebook, tumblr, e-mail, in person, etc.) Get them to become a member of the FOLK blog! Our goal is to reach 750 MEMBERS / FOLLOWERS.

Purchase a subscription to FOLK magazine for 1 year (6 issues) before the meter flips to 750. If you already have a subscription, you're good! ALL new and current magazine subscribers will automatically be entered into this drawing - we will pull your names from our magazine subscriber database. (To be clear, this does not refer to those who 'subscribe' to our blog in an rss feed. It refers to paid annual subscriptions to our print magazine).

FOLK Magazine Subscription link is provided in our blog sidebar or here

And here's some GREAT news: EVERY SUBSCRIBER will be receiving a special edition of FOLK Magazine in the fall... an EXTRA Issue created and distributed ONLY to our subscribers. This Special Issue will not ever be for sale, now or in the future. It's ONLY for subscribers - and you won't want to miss it. Subscribe now, be entered in the contest, AND get your own copy of our special Issue this fall!

Once we reach the 750 member mark, I will announce the contest has ended. Then we will wait 4 business days to choose a winner, so that last-minute subscriber checks can arrive to us. We want everyone who wants a chance to be able to enter!

We will announce the drawing winner here on the blog, on our facebook page, and on Twitter.
