Toll Gate Revival has opened its doors in Lawrenceville, offering eclectic décor à la Americana and a gamut of reclaimed goods. Owner and curator Seth Hunter grew up in Washington County on Toll Gate Farm, off of Route 40. For years, he scoured old barns and warehouses, and often set up shop at flea markets, antique fairs, and at his North Side studio, by appointment only. Recently, he discovered the perfect retail space on Butler Street. “The area is established, the foot traffic is great, and the neighborhood complements my shop well,” says Hunter. Toll Gate Revival is a little bit primitive, a little bit industrial — a reflection of Hunter’s personal style. And along with vintage treasures, he mixes in locally made candles, American-made apparel, and accessories. “Right now, I can’t keep enough of the Chesterfield-style couches,” he says. “They are really hot and sell pretty quickly — they are tough to find, too.” Hunter offers interior design consultations and rents his retail space for events, parties, and happy hours.
