The unclaimed baggage store in Scottsboro, Alabama is full of lost or unclaimed baggage items.

“All my college friends are jealous of everything they find here,” said shopper Kami Willis.

Everything in the store is from a bag that hasn’t been billed for at least 90 days. Owner Brian Owens has been checking in unclaimed baggage for about 50 years. He said he often saw many bags coming in during his busy travels, but he didn’t like this.

“We now have more products than ever before,” Owens said. “At both unclaimedbaggage.com and our shop.”
