Wellesley Historical Society

The Tollhouse Shop

The Tollhouse Shop opened in November 2006 and features gently used items. Because of the generous support of Wellesley residents who both donate and purchase items and the volunteers who sell the merchandise, the Tollhouse Shop has been successful and very well received.
For the most part, we rely on Wellesley residents for donations of gently used linens, china, crystal, costume jewelry, silver, silverplate, lamps, mirrors, small tables, and other collectibles. Donors receive a tax-deductible receipt for their items.
Another part of our success results from the collaboration with Lynn Falwell and Janice Armour of It’s Your Move, Inc. Their company helps people downsize and relocate, and the Tollhouse Shop has been the recipient of many items from their clients.
Items for sale are not from the collection of the Society, but have been donated specifically for sale in the shop.
