Finding discontinued kitchen ceramic tile

I am replacing damaged chateau tumbler gold ceramic tile around my apron kitchen sink. I was told by Arizona Tile that the manufacturer discontinued the tiles around 10 years ago. Where in the Southern California area might there be a business that has a stock of these tiles?

Welcome to the forums! I guess it's my job to tell you "it ain't gonna happen". If the manufacturer discontinued it even a year ago, supply stops, demand stops, and it disappears. We use them for targets because we can get them for almost nothing.
You MAY be able to find matching tile in salvage yards, but don't count on it. I would go with plan B.....find a complimentary tile to go with the existing tile.

I agree with Chandler. Although it never hurts to check out those salvage shops that get donations from tear downs and remodel jobs. Try the yellow pages to see if you have any such stores in your area. Best place to get old stuff. Habitat for Humanity has a restore all over the USA where they sell used stuff from demos.

I tried to do this with tile discontinued less than a year prior, no joy

Ten years ago? I wouldn't even try
