 Urban Ore (12/8)  in Berkeley.  In the last century, we might have called this a junkyard. Urban Ore's stated mission is To End the Age of Waste.  It's really an ultimate recycling center - of the best order.  One online review of Urban Ore that captured it well "..It feels like everything but the house is here - the longer stuff stays the more it will start to feel like a museum, but there are tons of useful and quirky items from picture frames to housewares and doors."  It is a fun place to explore!   2021_UrbanOre
