Today gets an Awesome but Terrifying post — even though it’s technically not a “school day” and not technically part of the SUMMER COUNTDOWN. But I saw this on the Travel Channel and thought, “if I went there it would be awesome!” but I also thought, “if I lost my luggage it would be terrifying!”
Have you ever felt like this after realizing that all of the stuff you packed for your trip to Toronto is lost somewhere out in airport baggage claim limbo?
Don’t worry! The airlines are about to sell it to the people who run this place:
The Unclaimed Baggage Center in Alabama — just where you want all your lost Gucci clothes and iPod going!
The airlines don’t sell your stuff right away. First they assure you that they cannot locate your bag and they compensate you. Then once they DO find your stuff they sell it.
To be fair, I’m making this sound much worse than it really is – although I, myself, have never lost anything via airline.
It’s amazing what people entrust to the airline baggage service. They have entire racks of wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses.
I considered myself a pretty cool bride, but if someone would have LOST my wedding dress I would have gone Bill O’Reilly on them!

Here’s the awesome part. This store literally has anything you could ask for! They even have a museum full of rare artifacts and works of art!
Here it is:
Impressive, I know.
I sort of want to go here. I wonder if they erase pictures and music off cameras and iPods before putting them up for sale. If not, I’m sure some people get an eyeful once they make their purchase!
It’s the Unclaimed Baggage Center, go there.
