It actually happens – people forget to pick up their luggage after a flight or don’t bother at all, and it goes round and round until the handlers pop it away.

It turns out in the US, if a traveller doesn’t claim their baggage within three months, it can head to a store called Unclaimed Baggage Center. It’s the place where you can head to check out all the interesting goods others have forgotten about and some of it is a steal.

Take a look at this stunning ring for example! The store said on social media it was priced at over $20,000AUD ($14,000USD) but appraised for three times that amount. What happened on that trip??
