Have you ever wondered what happens to unclaimed luggage from the airport?  Each year, millions of pieces of luggage travel all around the world, and some never make it back to their owners.  That’s where Alabama company “Unclaimed Baggage” steps in, purchasing orphaned bags from the airlines by the trailer load, and then reselling, repuropsing or recycling the items they find.

For 50 years now this store has been keeping our bags & their contents out of landfills, and offering a store filled with items ranging from the fun to the wierd to even very expensive items like a 40ct emerald ring and a suit of armor (see examples of all the extraordinary finds halfway down their “How it Works” page) 

Inside the store

“Airlines use sophisticated tracking technology to reunite over 99.5% of bags with their owners right away. If a bag is truly lost, airlines pay out a claim to the passenger. It’s only after an extensive three-month search that an unclaimed bag is deemed truly orphaned, a fate realized by less than 0.03% of all checked luggage!”  Check out the online store HERE and and be sure to browse through the “Weird & Wonderful Finds” section.

Weird & Wonderful Finds

All items go through a cleaning process before being resold, you can find vintage clothes, scores of luggage, ski gear, camera gear & other electronics, and so much more.  It’s like one massive online estate sale for travelers.  If you find something unique, let us know about it!
