Swell LogoNew Feature Alert! The interior designers at SWELL DECOR DESIGN are going to scout some of their favorite House & Garden Finds from around Charlotte and scoop them to you every week or so. Angie & Merrin spend so much time out & about, looking for the perfect items for their clients’ homes ~ we asked them to snap a few pics and keep us in the know. Even though we scoop-ers love to shop, it’s always nice to see what the experts would buy, who their sources are for their fabulous finds. So be on the lookout for What is Swell This Week to see what these two girls have sourced for us, our homes and our wallets each week!

What is Swell this week?

Treasures old and new await you at Metrolina Expo Collectibles and Antique Show this week.  This is the “big” show for spring and it starts Wednesday April 2.

We have been going to the “flea” for many years and you just never know what you will find. We have bought silver, furniture, rugs and some of the best vintage jewelry.  Although the show is the first weekend every month, the extravaganza is only in April and November. Swell décor plans to be there scouting out “finds” for clients so that they will have one of a kind pieces and making their homes unique. Some things we think should be on your shopping list are: silver pieces to add to your grandmothers collection, original oil paintings that strike you, unusual objects that can be a focal point in your room and vintage fabrics for pillows. Wood pieces for a ranch were on our list during the last sale (see below).
