Over the last few years I have had several things seized by the TSA at the airport. You would think I would have learned by now, but it seems like they change the rules from time to time. Anyway, if you have ever wondered what happens to all the stuff that doesn't make it through the airport? Thousands of pounds of property either gets left behind or seized by TSA at security checkpoints, but all of it ends up at the same place.
The State Surplus Storefront in East Austin is home to tons of items that never made it onto airplanes at airports across the state of Texas. It's a 50,000 square foot warehouse and inside you can find pretty much anything from pocket knives to tools, jewelry and electronics. Check it out HERE
