Founder, Travel Massive

Here's a cool find I came across. This business actually started in the 1970's when the founder borrowed $300 to buy unclaimed luggage from Washington D.C. airport, and opened a store. The business works by purchasing orphaned airline luggage (0.03% percent of checked luggage is unclaimed after 3 months), then refurbishing it for sale, gifting to charity, or recycling it. There's also some eclectic finds, if you're after something obscure!

Great idea and also a good way to get data on what travelers carry and how to reduce the footprint of our traveling items.
