I asked Nancy if there was a back story on this stash — where did they come from?! She said:
Scott has acquired these old tiles from a few different sources. The most recent was from a basement in the Los Angeles home of an old tile setter who passed away. Many of these liner tiles were stored there, covered in dust so it was like a treasure hunt! More info about our company on our web site. We’ve been in business since 1992.

And remember this story: When Sarah used a variety of liner tiles in her parent’s bathroom remodel? So clever! In fact, I see that the sellers are showing a photo from Sarah’s story in some of their listings and on their website to give prospective buyers an idea how to use the liner tiles 😉
There are so many pretty designs available — and the stock seems to be good for at least some of the designs. That is, if you run don’t walk, you may be able to nab enough linear feet for a complete bathroom.
