|WORLD OF LOST LUGGAGE SHOPPING
While air travel is reaching new heights of safety, the same can't be said for our luggage. In 2022, around 26 million bags were reported lost or damaged. Not all of these bags find their way back to their owners, opening up a unique opportunity for bargain hunters.
1. UNCLAIMED BAGGAGE
Since 1970, Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro, Alabama, has been a haven for lost luggage. Acquiring unclaimed bags from various airports, they meticulously sort, clean, and appraise each item before sale. Visit their physical store for a unique shopping experience, browse their online catalog, or participate in their auction events.
This site offers a different kind of luggage deal. Items seized by airport security, usually because they're not allowed past the gate, end up here. The TSA, along with other government agencies, auction off these items. From scissors collections to more unusual finds, GovDeals hosts auctions for these unique lots.
Both Unclaimed Baggage and GovDeals offer a world where lost and forgotten items find new homes, providing savvy shoppers with the chance to discover rare finds at discounted prices.
