A Travel Channel crew will be in Indianapolis this week to film a baggage auction at Indianapolis International Airport. "Baggage Wars" will document the Saturday event where the public can bid on unclaimed property left at the airport.
January 24, 2012
Everyday, millions of people travel. And hundreds of thousands of
bags are lost in transit around the world. When this property goes unclaimed, it’s put up for public auction to the highest bidder.
Outrageous fortune is just a suitcase away…
Bid on unopened mystery luggage, laptops, ipads, smart phones, jewelry, and rare collectables. These are just a few of the items available for purchase this Saturday at the Indianapolis International Airport. The Travel Channel series “Baggage Battles” will cover the auction conducted by KEY Auctioneers and the Indianapolis Airport Authority.
The auction for the left behind treasures will be held this Saturday, January 28, at 1:00 P.M. at the Republic Hangar, 2745 Hoffman Road, Indianapolis. There will be a sale preview before the auction from 11:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.
“Baggage Battles” is a fun, fast-paced half-hour documentary television series about the highly competitive and unknown world of lost property auctions. The new Travel Channel show follows real expert buyers as they travel the globe in search of treasures buried at the bottom of luggage left behind in airports, packages lost in the mail, items seized by customs, unclaimed safety deposit boxes, and many other hidden gems lost in transit. Every city has an auction—and every auction has its own extraordinary story.
