Treasure Hunting Tips
Shopping at Unclaimed Baggage Center is a treasure hunting adventure filled with surprises. Make the most of your trip with tips from some of our veteran shoppers.
Tip #1 from Janet:
Plan for plenty of time to look through everything. Good deals and unique finds can be overlooked if you rush through.
Tip #2 from Rebecca:
Come with realistic expectations. It's Unclaimed Baggage, you literally never know what you will find.
Tip #3 from Christine:
Keep your head down and hands free.
Tip #4 from Kathy:
Don't take list just have fun! Keep eyes open for deals. Great fun!
Tip #5 Mary:
If you even 'think' you might want it, grab it, because when you go back it will be gone!
Tip #6 from Kathy:
Make sure you have plenty of time to look around!
Tip #7 from Dustin:
Do not underestimate the small home and beauty UBC located right outside the door between the women's hats and kid's shoes! This tiny building has bedding, art, hair care, & kitchenware! (I found an awesome Dunkin Donuts travel mug from Japan!)
Tip #8 from Pam:
UBC is our family's 'happy place'. Go in search for the 'item of the day.' Sometimes it is a wild outfit, funny shoes, or something weird, but just finding 'it' always makes for a marvelous adventure.
Tip #9 from Grace:
Go on a week day. Plan on spending at least 2-3 hours there, don't simply glance at items, really take the time to look. Anytime you like something, throw it in your buggy, even if you're not sure. A lot of the time the item will get snatched up if you put it back.
Tip #10 from Gina:
Keep an open mind (who would have ever thought I'd get excited over used shoes?) and don't be in a hurry.
Tip #11 from Amy:
When I'm clothes shopping - I check the dressing room return rack also.
Tip #12 from Clayton:
Make sure you find your favorite places and check them first. I always look through the Mezzanine beginning with musical instruments, make the circle, and hit the baby stuff on my way to the Men's department and out to the Annex.
