Scottsboro, Alabama, has been an unlikely tourist destination for 50 years, as the location is home to Unclaimed Baggage, a one-of-a-kind retail store selling unclaimed and lost airline baggage and its contents. And now, shoppers can also experience the thrill of shopping for these items online, as Unclaimed Baggage unveiled a brand-new e-commerce site last week. A wide assortment of items will be available on the website at below-retail prices, ranging from designer sunglasses to iPads and watches.

 

All the items online and in the brick-and-mortar store are treasures that airlines and travel businesses have been unable to reunite with their former owners. New items are added regularly, and will be categorized online with plenty of filter options to make shopping virtually easy and fun. Front and center on the website are Weird and Wonderful Finds, where shoppers might find Bavarian lederhosen or a pole spear.

 

“Our customers have long requested an online version of our in-store shopping experience,” said Bryan Owens, CEO, Unclaimed Baggage. “We’re glad that as part of our 50th anniversary, shoppers are now able to experience the thrill of the hunt online.”

 

As the inventory is ever-changing, online shoppers can peruse traditional categories like apparel, shoes, fine jewelry, musical instruments, sporting goods, electronics and entertainment, alongside more quirky sections, such as Luxe Finds, New Arrivals and Unusual Finds.
