Film Biz, a non-profit, provides a place for tv and movie sets to responsibly dispose of their set props. These items are offered for resale at the Film Biz shop. This is why you'll find real furniture, kitchenware and lighting fixtures mixed in with a bag of fake bread, vintage soda cans from a period show and some fake light-up candles -- all for sale in the same space.
The large space hosts several vignettes, "rooms" of grouped and styled items. You've got a bedroom, some living room areas and then it clusters into like-kind (lighting, chairs, A/V, kitchen, kids, fabric and craft materials). The far end of the space hosts a line of shelves and sorting tables, where items aren't priced but you'll probably get a pretty good price if you ask! You'll find piles on the table to peruse, as well a curiously-named boxes (Beach in a Box, Grandma in a Box, etc.) to rifle through.
Wanna see? Here we go.
Film Biz has a lot of furniture and more throw pillows than you can shake a stick at.
Some HomeFill cans and fake foods, too, among the vintage stuff.
I was tempted by more than one of those casserole dishes and those vintage canisters.
Not tempted by this one at all.

Film Biz fills a great niche.
operate as a non-profit organization
advise the film business on best green practices for managing their "stuff"
create a place that normal folks like us can buy things like fake tarts,
"logs in a fireplace" or even just a lamp.
We are committed to never have another dumpster full of perfectly good materials tossed to create green house gasses in a landfill.
Film Biz Recycling also seeks to connect the industry with other industries, communities and planet via collaboration, lateral thinking and volunteerism. Our materials can change lives. Our unique skills can move mountains so let’s be a shining light to the rest of the world!
