Traveling in a Gucci suitcase, the facility got an undeadly surprise. An Egyptian burial mask came and other artifacts from about 1500 BC. This information was taken from the Unclaimed Bagge website.
Come fly with me…and buy with me…let’s save.
Since more people are traveling, I began to wonder what is happening to all the bags that are not found at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. As long as the original owner had never picked it up, I was curious about where it all ended up. During my search, I found an online store that looked rather interesting.

The Unclaimed Baggage Center is located in the town of Scottsboro, Alabama, and allows you to legally buy other people’s lost airline luggage online. After an extended period of time, if an airline passenger does not claim their missing baggage and the airline cannot reunite the bags with their rightful owners, the lost items get sent here. Pretty cool right?

You can shop online in categories like clothing, shoes, jewelry, accessories, electronics, and miscellaneous. The store uses the methods of repurposing, recycling, and reselling. Any electronics are wiped clean of all personal data. According to the store’s online description, not all items get put up for sale. Any items containing personal information are shredded. Some of the items the facility has found and sold over the years are wild. You can see some previews below.

You will be happy to know that in addition to selling unique items for cheap, The Unclaimed Baggage Center also gives back to the community. For every item that is sold the company donates something to someone in need. You can see more shopping online for other people’s lost airline luggage here.
