The Hades of Lost Luggage

Ineptly fumbled then lost by the luggage-flinging monkeys at your local airport, where does your suitcase go after you’ve given up all hope? Scottsboro, Alabama… where your prized possessions are then thoughtfully sold online to the highest bidder?

Want an iPod, or a top-of-the-line Canon zoom lens? How about a 40 carat emerald, a mummified heard or a live rattlesnake? The Unclaimed Baggage center can sell you someone else’s for low, low prices.

According to their FAQ, “The vast majority of items are from unclaimed baggage which, after at least 90 days of intensive tracking by the airlines, are declared unclaimed.” By ‘intensive tracking’, we assume they mean ‘all bags that are unclaimed after a mislabeled postcard without a stamp is sent to the address on the tags’.
