“I gave a PoPville shirt to my friend Summer who lives in Southwest Virginia way up in the Appalachian mountains. Her little town is called Clintwood, and it’s about 3 hours past Damascus almost to the border of Kentucky. She and her husband run a lovely guest house on AirBnB up there. I told her to wear the shirt next time she was out working on her land and I would pass it on.”
