We are absolutely elated to announce our second Makerie Scholarship!

Starting on January 2nd, we are inviting nominations for a very special someone who would embrace the spirit of the Makerie.

The eligibility requirements to enter are simple for each nomination: 
:: become our facebook friends ~ Old Glory Antiques & the Makerie
:: follow us on twitter ~ @OldGloryAntique & @theMakerie
:: write us a letter under 500 words via email to telling us why this person would be a beautiful fit for the scholarship and what attending the Makerie would mean to them. And YES, feel free to nominate yourself! Be sure to include your contact information. Please know that all entries will be kept confidential.

Awarding a Makerie scholarship means the world to us and one of my personally most cherished parts of our event. I just can’t thank Old Glory Antiques and Prince Street Dry Goods enough for their incredibly kind generosity in making this all possible.
We would be grateful if you could pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested in applying! 



  1. Wow! Isn't that Just lovely!!

  2. What a wonderful opportunity! Question: The painting session looks to be full, so am I correct in assuming that piece wouldn't be available?

  3. Aw thanks so much Heather! We're so excited to be able to offer this thanks to the kind generosity of Old Glory Antiques. And yes, the painting session is full so it won't be available. The other workshops will be fabulous!
