Where Unclaimed Luggage Goes To Live Again

Have you ever lost your luggage and wondered where it has ended up?

Have you ever lost your luggage and wondered where it has ended up? Most of it ends up at the Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro, Alabama. It’s a massive thrift store style warehouse selling clothes, cameras, iPods, souvenirs, prescription eyeglasses, and of course the luggage, itself. The majority of items are from unclaimed baggage which, after at least 90 days of intensive tracking by the airlines, are declared unclaimed. They’ve even devoted sections of their website to the most Interesting Stuff they’ve come across and a Peek In The Bag, where you can view a customer’s receipt. The best part of the store is that you can’t shop online, you must discover “lost treasures from around the world” in person.
