Thanks so much to the Hatch readers for figuring out where the shopping spots on Top Design were! Who knew instead of squinting at the store sign (that didn’t even have a store name on it) on the TV I should have been READING THE CREDITS AT THE END! DUH!
Commenter Jessica let us know:
I found it!
The junkyard is called freeway building materials and it’s in Los Angeles on Boyle Avenue.
There is a picture of the front and it matches your video clip.
I looked at the credits at the end and it was listed right above SV de Paul.
anyway, I think I’m probably right…here is the website…check it out.
See you there!
Commenters Tony and So Lovely let us know that the thrift store was St. Vincent de Paul. They also had some suggestions that sound like great resources as well. Check out all the comments to the post here for some great L.A. treasure hunt shopping!
By the way, you can make a tub that looks like this…
…look like this one in my bathroom. Mine came from Paris on Ponce and cost $350:
