Anyone know places like that on the west coast or other regions?
They are all over in coastal towns & cities. Check Good Old Boat mags website - they have a big list of such places.

One day I'm going to L.A. just to check out Minneys and that boat junkyard in Long Beach.

I'm off to Bellingham on Tuesday to check out the used/consignment store there - it's pretty good but their prices are all over the map - you have to be careful there. Popeyes in North Van is pretty thin these days and they are not carrying sails anymore. The Mariners Exchange in Steveston closed recently and I haven't been to the place in Sydney for a couple of years - they used to have LOTS of sails.
