Looking for your lost luggage? We know where to find it. It’s in Scottsboro, Alabama.
Unclaimed Baggage Center collects lost luggage from over the world. Most of the stuff comes from airlines, which after 90 days of trying, gives up on finding the owner and declares it unclaimed.
That adds up to more than a million items a year passing through the company’s city-block-size store in Scottsboro. You can find cameras, jewelry, laptops, and mass quantities of The DiVinci Code.
Some of the more unusual items include a shrunken head, a mummified falcon, and a suit of armor.
The best part is that everything is marked down 20 percent to 80 percent off the suggested manufacturer’s price. Which means you can get a real bargain on those shriveled heads.
It’s the only store in America that buys and sells unclaimed luggage. It has exclusive contracts with airlines and purchases the swag sight unseen.
The company was founded in 1970 by Doyle and Sue Owen, and is now run by their son Bryan, who installed a caf? to cater to the 1 million visitors annually.
Unclaimed Baggage Center does not sell anything over the Internet. You have to go directly to Alabama.
Maybe it’s not such a great deal after all.
