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.

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.
