How All of America’s Lost Luggage Ends Up at One Alabama Thrift Store (And Why You Really Need to Go There)

1

Of course you haven’t. But when you find out, you’re going to wish you’d wondered about it sooner.

The short answer is: it ends up in the tiny town of Scottsboro, Alabama, at a store called Unclaimed Baggage. This store is exactly what it sounds like: a place that sells people’s long-lost stuff.

Clothes, shoes, books, cameras, musical instruments, sporting goods, books, computers, cologne, jewelry, bags – Unclaimed Baggage adds 7,000(!) new items to their inventory every day, all taken from luggage that was lost and never recovered.
