You guys came up with a lot of great theories! They're all pretty plausible, but I think the Parisian vampire scenario is the most probable
seriously though, I think idea of a discarded lost and found from a hotel is pretty likely. The northernmost spot I indicated is very close to at
least one hotel.
I wonder, too, if a lot of it came from the market itself. Maybe people had stuff they couldn't sell and just left it? I'm pretty sure it's a
once-per-week market, so it goes up and comes down pretty fast.
Someone mentioned that many people use these bags as a means of transporting materials too, so they could be the "shopping carts" of Paris.
I don't feel like it has anything to do with human trafficking (I hope not!), but as someone else mentioned, it would
be a good way to quickly
get rid of excess items that you don't want tied to you. It's kind of like in Lord of War, when Interpol was on to their gun smuggling so they
landed their plane and gave everything away to the locals, clearing out all their supplies in minutes.
There's also a bus station near these spots that is a huge hub. Just about any bus in and out of France goes through this station, and it's the
arrival station for a lot of buses from the U.K. The same building is also a Metro station that connects the area to the rest of Paris. A lot of
gypsies hang out around this hub, so I wouldn't be surprised if this was all stolen from transients passing through.
Whatever the case, we will probably never really know. I just thought it was interesting and you guys might enjoy a little mystery to start off the
