Salvage yard treasures

Growing up, I would watch This Old House almost religiously every Saturday. I remember an episode while either Norm Abrams or Steve Thomas was hosting where they went to a salvage shop that looked like a giant barn-style warehouse for either an antique light fixture, some doors to match the house, or good period wood. While there, they saw this great bar set. I believe it was during Steve's time because I seem to recall a youthful energy about the comment which was something to the effect of 'Boy, I would sure like to have this in my house' and the other show representative saying it definitely wasn't in the budget for the project house then asking where he would put it. I am not entirely sure but I want to say that the project house was in New England. Where was that shop? What was its name and is it still in business? I'd like to shop there for old-style furnishings for the home I am designing to build.
