IF you’ve ever wondered about the package you ordered that never arrived, it might be waiting for someone to unpack it on YouTube channel.
The viral trend of buying unclaimed mail and checking out your surprise items on camera has led to some interesting forays.
YouTuber Mia Maples spent $1,200 on unclaimed mail packages and managed to hit a gold mine of random items.
Mia introduced her video by explaining that the items she bought were left uncollected for so long that they were sent to a redistribution center to be bought again.
Mia opened her first package, which turned out to be a shipment of industrial-size liquor pourers.
“Who orders 24 of these?” asked the YouTuber.
Liquor pourers are around $6 each, which means Mia has already made just under $150 from her first box.
Their next package contained 71 wallets, which retailed for $8 a piece.
“$568 purses! Who bought so many?” said the YouTube influencer.
Her third package was possibly the least valuable, as it contained several packages of lightbulbs, some of which broke in transit.
“It must be a restaurant [order]right?” Mia asked as she opened a package of 24 serving bowls.
Next, Mia opened a large box containing all the components for a corner sink.
“I wonder what the reason for not saying something like that is because that felt like a very purposeful instruction,” Mia said.
She then noticed five more identical boxes, meaning she had five more unassembled sinks in her loot.
Mia went on to open 60 pairs of earbuds, 24 Samsung phone chargers, six children’s toys, several large food containers and dozens of kitchen items.
She unwrapped 120 spatulas that sell for $10 each, meaning she got all her money back with just one pack.
Mia estimated the retail value of her entire loot at around $6,800.
Viewers took to the comments section to discuss Mia’s unique booty.
“Someone has probably said this before, but I used to work in the warehouse of a department store (in Khol, to be precise) and this is how stock is packed for shipment to the store. So it definitely looks like you’ve landed a pallet of lost department store inventory,” wrote one user.
Another viewer suggested: “For the kitchen items, you might want to see if there’s a soup kitchen nearby that she’d like! And by the earplugs, you could see if a local school could use them!”
