Ever wonder what happens to your lost luggage? History TV18 provides a glimpse into the very profitable business of bidding, buying and reselling unclaimed property in the new original series ‘Baggage Battles’, premiering on Saturday at 10 PM. The half-hour series follows three teams of savvy ‘auction specialists’ who travel to some of the most important and unknown auctions where their bids are based on sheer instincts.
‘Baggage Battles’ features Laurence and Sally Martin, a married couple that has been in the antique business for over 20 years co-owning Studio Antiques in California; Mark Meyer, a young entrepreneur and owner of New York’s The Nifty Thrifty store and, Billy Leroy, the owner of the iconic Billy’s Antiques and Props, one of the last eclectic props and antique stores in New York.
With dozens of auctions to visit, thousands of bags to explore, and millions of dollars at stake, these auction specialists need both skill and luck to hit the jackpot. They don't know if it's junk or a jackpot until they win the bid and open the suitcase.
