This was probably one of the biggest let downs of my life. I came here expecting bargains and good prices of decent equipment but I found something every thrift store shopper fears. Average prices, I saw no outstanding bargains nor did I find crazy deals....More

While visiting a friend, we decided to check out the Unclaimed Baggage Center. It was very interesting. We did buy several small items but wish that we had more time to shop.

Drove over an hour thinking we could save some money and found that they were asking full blown retail for the items they had for sale ! Would never go back nor recommend that anyone else go

The museum pieces were interesting. Some nice jewelry. I am sure some people love it. Glad we made the detour to visit—marked it off the bucket list and enjoyed the historic downtown square (a malt and/or a sqndwich at Payne’s is a MIST DO).

That's accurate. Huntsville airport is the closest airport to this store.

I've been there many times and have never seen any kind of currency. That said, there is no way no answer that question reliably, because you never know -- THEY never know -- what they're going to get and put out for sale.

Sorry. I don't think there's any public transport. What about UBER or Lyft? It was a pleasant drive from Chattanooga. And a perfect half-way stop is the Lodge cast iron cookware factory store in South Pittsburg, TN.
