There is a good chance your lost luggage ended up at the unclaimed baggage center two hours from Nashville, and it's a place where bargain hunters are getting deals on someone's missing stuff.

The Unclaimed Baggage Center is located in Scottsboro, Alabama. 

Brenda Cantrell wrote a paper about UBC in college and 21 years later, she's still there, this time as "brand ambassador". She can thank Oprah for that title.

Oprah's production company called and wanted to send down her personal shopping. The team came down and did a segment in the parking lot. That opened the media flood gates; there was a television station at UBC filming just about every week.

Tracy Kornet decided it was News4's turn to check out the phenomenon.
