Another Revival
Seth Hunter is packing up his chesterfield sofas, vintage tin signs and other found items and moving them to a new location. Following a liquidation sale at its warehouse in Lawrenceville in January, Toll Gate Revival is set to open at a new storefront in Braddock this spring. Featuring vintage decor and reclaimed materials, Toll Gate Revival made its debut as a storefront on Butler Street in 2015. Two years later, Hunter moved the business to a larger warehouse further down the road in Lawrenceville.

Put On a Show
If you need, want — or just dream of — something for your home, you’re sure to find it when the Duquesne Light Pittsburgh Home & Garden Show returns for its 38th year from March 1 to 10 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown. The annual event features 1,800 exhibitors spread out across 10 acres. Highlights include the Dream Home Innovation Center, The Kitchen Idea Center and The Garden Resource Center. Don’t be afraid to bring the family to the show. Kids won’t get bored thanks to the Children’s Village, a family-friendly space hosted by Shady Lane School. While you’re there, visit Pittsburgh Magazine at its exhibit area on the building’s second level.

Shop Local
Discover Carnegie — and all its shops and galleries — when the annual Carnegie Crawl kicks off Friday, May 10. Held from 5 to 9 p.m. on the second Friday of each month from May through October, the free event includes local retailers — among them Abandoned Pittsburgh Art Gallery and Modern Mercantile — and restaurants staying open late for patrons, plus live music and other activities. Participating businesses are marked with a Carl The Snail mascot sign in the store window.

Find Your Tribe
Building off a four-year online presence, local furniture designer and artisan John Eastman opened a brick-and-mortar Eastmantribe store adjacent to the Regent Square Theater — which is operated by the nonprofit Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts — in the last days of 2018. A contemporary design brand, Eastmantribe features organic and industrial furniture, textiles and lifestyle products. The retail store debut is part of an overall revitalization plan for the iconic movie house, which is one of the last remaining single-screen neighborhood theaters in the region.
