Applications are being accepted for Gabriel & Co.’s second scholarship with WJA.

A scholarship of $5,000 will be awarded to one dedicated female student enrolled in fine jewelry design courses.

The scholarship has been established to help provide funding for students to achieve professional growth within the jewelry industry and in their communities at large.

Consideration will be given to students who are able to clearly articulate a desire to participate in charitable efforts in the future or how they will use their career in jewelry to improve communities.

Applications for this scholarship are open to members of the Women’s Jewelry Association and non-members. Applicants must complete the online application, which includes an essay and proof of enrollment.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
