The recent LEGO set 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina set includes a pretty sizeable side build of a Jawan junk shop.

Here is a picture from the official LEGO promo photos:

Does this shop make an appearance in the official movies or lore, or is it an invention of The LEGO Group? It's been a few years since I've watched A New Hope and I don't recall seeing anything like it.

JN: Does the Jawa shop take inspiration from any specific building during the movie?

CS: Not specifically, no. Although I was primarily inspired by the scene in the Special Edition of Ep IV where Luke’s Land speeder goes through a very busy street in Mos Eisley and where you can see a lot of buildings and get a good idea of the Mos Eisley architectural style. The interiors are not based on anything specific, but we figured that a shop run by a Jawa would have a lot of engine pieces, tools, blasters, etc
