Maybe, I don't hang out in LA land much.

I went somewhere once and am pretty sure it must have been Apex - had 
the same random back yard. I found a couple big-ass bearings, close to 3 
inch ID. I had some project in mind and they gave me a reasonable price, 
maybe $5 each, So, lots of stuff is over priced, but maybe if you browse 
a while, you may find some stuff that can be negotiated at a mutual 
advantage.
