The place looks nice, but you are paying retail prices for used garbage! It's a thrift store!!! I don't see why all the fuss is about.

Tools and books. The prices for the new books are very hard to beat and the same goes for the tools. Searching through the odds & ends is an adventure in itself.

It is true what people say about UCB..."you never know what you will find." A visit to Unclaimed Baggage is like a treasure hunt. I always find something new. UCB is home to one of the largest dry cleaners in the Southeast. When homeless luggage is unpacked at the processing center, each article is cleaned and tagged. These new items... More

There may some good deals but for the mot part it is an overpriced thrift shop. It looked like it has been remodeled so it was very pleasent to shop but it was still used things.

depending on what day you visit and the incoming items you more than likely will find very good bargains on something. They have everything from electronics, luggage, jewelry, sun glasses all price ranges, jackets, sports coats, suits, etc..I think you will be surprised when you visit this location..always some bargains at good quality and pricing.

I would have to say that it's not all that it's cracked up to be! You will find a few really good deals if you go often and dig, dig, dig! For the most part though it's just crazy over priced! A yardsale would be WAY cheaper and probably in better condition! And some of the staff is a bit... More

Electronics are overpriced. But In 2 visits I found 1 new men's suit my size and 3 new sport coats my size, spent about 40 bucks, all 4 were new Italian suits. Our group had fun though shopping, you never know what you will find.

Just like a treasure hunt! I stop here on an annual crafting retreat in Scottsboro. What fun to see what I can find. Patience is key here since a shopper must sort through racks, shelves, and bins of merchandise, but sometimes my diligence is rewarded with a super find at a fraction of usual retail sale prices. Shoppers go bonkers... More

Was in Nashville and Unclaimed Baggage is located about 2.5 hours away. I took my two young adult kids with me to check it out. There is an enormous amount of clothing...i.e. three entire racks full of denim jackets. Some cheap and cheesy as well as some of the name brand classics. It seemed very hit or miss. There weren't...
