Need a spare part for your spaceship?

Look no further.
Norton Sales is the home of Space Age Junk and Modern Collectibles. Serious rocketeers, NASA engineers, and Hollywood set designers come here for inspiration and surplus rocket parts.

It is possibly one of the coolest places in Los Angeles!

My friend Robin took me on my first trip to Norton’s one hot day during the summer of 2004. Needless to say, I was hooked. It’s filled to the brim with spare aerospace surplus from the Apollo era and before. Carlos Guzman is the owner of Norton’s and an all around good guy. I liked it so much, I pitched the story to WIRED Science and we did a segment on it.  If you’re looking for parts to build your own space ship or if you’re looking for unique art supplies, Norton’s is the place for you.
