I paid $24 for lost luggage & bagged items from Gucci & YSL worth over $500

EVER wonder what happens to all the unclaimed luggage that gets lost at the airport?

Fashion enthusiast and content creator Roxi answered that question when she purchased someone else’s lost luggage at an auction, taking to YouTube to reveal the items.

“This is literally some stranger’s luggage, I have no idea what’s inside, and we’re going to open it in this video together,” Roxi said to the camera.

“I do want to let you guys know that I have personally been in a situation where an airline has lost my luggage on the way to a holiday, and let’s just say it wasn’t the best experience ever.

“But over the years, that has made me wonder – where is my favorite makeup? Where are my favorite dresses that were all in my luggage? What happened to all that content?”

Before filming her video, Roxi did some deep diving to feed her curiosity.

She learned that an airline has about 90 days on average to try to return a suitcase to its original owner.

If 90 days pass and they can’t find the lost suitcase anywhere, they reimburse the owner with money.

When the lost suitcases do eventually turn up, they are sold at auctions.

At one such auction, Roxi ended up paying $24 dollars in total to obtain the unknown items in the black suitcase that she bid on – and ended up with goods worth over $500.

During the auction, all the luggage was in one room and had different categories.

The suitcase Roxi opted for was labeled “women’s clothes.”

Filled with loads of anticipation before diving into the contents of the suitcase, the excited woman said: “Oh my gosh I’m so nervous. I’m either going to get some designer clothes in here or I’m going to waste my money.”

She counted down from three before opening the black suitcase which showed some signs of wear.

“Oh wow,” she said upon unzipping it.

“It’s looking kind of promising.”

First, she went through a bag of toiletries that included some common items – sun lotion, a razor, shampoo, mascara, lipstick, and a toothbrush.

She hit the jackpot when she uncovered a designer YSL perfume (retail value $108) which she confirmed smelled “amazing.”

She also pulled out a brown, quilted genuine suede leather handbag that still had the tags on.

A nice cream-colored dress from H&M was also among the items.

“It’s so cute, I really really like it. I’m actually going to give this away to my mom because I feel like she’ll like this a lot,” Roxi said of the garment as it wasn’t her size.

She found another “cute” handbag that gave beach vibes which was filled with coins.

Continuing to rummage through the suitcase, she came across the next item, stating: “I think I just saw something that could potentially be really valuable.”

Roxi pulled out a black Gucci top, which retails for $580, in amazement, but quickly realized it was a fake.

“It looks pretty good though. It looks just like a Gucci T-shirt to be honest,” she said.

“I’m going to wash this and I’m definitely going to use it.”

A white strappy pair of heels, a black satin-like dress with a bow, as well as a black mini skirt were also among the items.

Roxi was left feeling satisfied and like the money spent at the auction was worth it.

“I’ve got to say my favorite thing from the whole suitcase is definitely the perfume. This is one thing I’m definitely going to use, because like, it’s a perfume,” she told viewers.
