Last year, we covered beautiful Charleston, a city full of Southern charm, cobblestone streets, beaches, and so much good food. That's when met the amazing ladies of The Makers Collective, the Greenville-based organization that works with Southern creatives to help them gain exposure while cultivating a community of support.
