Unclaimed Baggage Center / by john cheng

I was traveling this past Thanksgiving, and I have to admit that I had a moment of fear of losing my luggage. Have you ever wondered what happens to the baggage that winds up never finding it's way back to the owner?

Oct. 10 (Bloomberg) -- What happens to a bag left unclaimed at an airport? Eventually, if never reunited with its owner, it ends up at the Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro, Alabama. It's the only store in America that buys and resells unclaimed baggage from the airline industry, according to Brenda Cantrell, the center's brand ambassador.
