Bring an empty vehicle! You can find the most amazing and wonderful finds at Unclaimed Baggage. We go several times a year and have found everything from a .99 alarm clock that never fails to an airline food cart that now serves as a tool stand and storage in the garage. Take your time, explore and enjoy!

I had high expectations prior to visiting and was very disappointed. I found absolutely no bargains. Many items you could purchase new for less. Also, it is obvious that some of the items did not come from baggage, but from thrift stores or liquidators. Don't waste your time.

Great visit to this unique store! Spent two hours just looking at all the items here and the staff was very friendly. We even ate lunch there and the food was really good. When you are in the area you need to plan to stop and visit UBC.

Stopped by to take a look. Had my granddaughter with me. She loved all the electronics. Nice little cafe. Found a couple really nice sweaters. My granddaughter found some DS games and earphones. Prices were good. Lots to look at.

GREAT customer service. A (Starbucks coffee) coffee shop and a comfy seating area to drop off your husband while you shop :) The store is filled with items left behind from travelers' luggage, from formal dresses to cameras to who knows what. There are also some odd lot new stuff too. You never know what you find, and prices really... More

We stopped here on our way north. It is always fun to shop but I found nothing that was a great item or bargain.

We left Huntsville about mid-morning and headed northeast. Our jaunt around northern Alabama takes a short detour as our destination for today is Chattanooga. I had picked out the small town of Scottsboro, Alabama as a likely place to have some lunch. Besides having a quaint town square and historic shopping area, it has a retail business on the west...

Going to the Unclaimed Baggage Center (UBC) is like no other experience. Part high end, low price thrift store and part museum, a visit to the UBC is sure to provide a fun time seeing what everyone leaves in their luggage and get you great deals on brand name clothes, electronics and other gear. I've been to UBC many times,... More

My family met my brother's family here to enjoy some Black Friday shopping together! We got there at 7:00 a.m. and were greeted with friendly smiles and warm welcomes. I had been here before so I knew where to take my sister-in-law since she had a list of specific things to get. After two hours of shopping in both the... More
