I picked up a $460 designer outfit for a third of the price at a lost luggage store | The Sun

IF YOU'VE ever lost something while travelling, you may have wondered what happened to your unfound luggage.

Well, there are shops that sell the items found inside other people's unclaimed suitcases.


YouTuber Safiya Nygaard headed to one of the stores in Scottsboro to bag herself a discounted outfit, made of other people's posessions.

She said: "Over the past few years, we have tried a number of interesting secondhand purchasing experiences.

"Like buying an abandoned storage unit, buying a box of Amazon customer returns, and visiting an Amazon returns store – and something that I have been very interested in trying for quite a while now, is buying lost airline luggage.

"Because apparently if you lose a piece of luggage while traveling, and never come back for it, the airline will eventually sell it."
