See what’s in store at SCORE, the CSOL’s fun and chic pop up shop.


What happens when a talented interior designer buys something fabulous … but it just doesn’t work in the space? (This never happens on HGTV, but in real life? Oh, yeah). Old answer: The designer’s friends and family luck out. A better solution: The designer sells the item at SCORE. To-the-trade décor, priced gently, available to you. Who just SCORE’d?

SCORE, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra League’s chic pop-up shop, will be open for business at the 43rd annual Symphony Designer Showhouse in the spring of 2020. The room designers provide a trove of décor inspiration; SCORE is an extension of the taste levels in the Showhouse. SCORE features edited collections with a unique point of view, for a limited time only. Shop new, vintage, and noteworthy items which aren’t available everywhere else, with more than 30 sophisticated partners presenting very special merchandise.

In addition to the interior designers, a juried selection of Charleston artists, artisans and antique dealers offer items for sale: Exquisite linens, local foods and gourmet gifts, tempting ceramics, handmade children’s clothing, elegant European selections and lots of smart accessories and jewelry. These are tomorrow’s heirlooms, today and is what shopping should be: Items that you just can’t leave behind.

SCORE is open 7 days a week. A ticket to the Designer Showhouse isn’t necessary to enter SCORE, and repeat visits are encouraged to visit the charming garden café as well as to take advantage of SCORE’s rapidly changing inventory and trunk shows.

Purchases at SCORE help keep the music alive: Profits are donated to the Charleston Symphony and Charleston Symphony Orchestra League music education initiatives. Do good and do well at SCORE.
