Lost Baggage Here



Lost Baggage Here

Holiday baggage going for song - but it's a lottery.

Location: 211 Longley Road, Tooting, SW17 9LG

Description: This well known South London firm of Auctioneers, Greasbys, was founded in 1919 by Henrietta Greasby, and has operated from the original site since then to the present day.

Amongst other things, this South London auctioneer specialises in selling on lost baggage sourced from those good people at the London Airports and more often than not British Airways.

Anyone can turn up to bid, you need to pay a 100 pound deposit - and the going rate for a case is between 6 and 45 pounds.

And it's a lottery...inside can lurk clothes worth hundreds of pounds, or indeed a bunch of dirty smalls...Now go find and enjoy.
