Missing your phone since visiting the San Diego County Fair? Fumbling around the house because you can’t find your glasses?
Since June 5, the beginning of the fair, visitors have left behind more than 160 items. The largest is a very large walker on wheels with hand brakes, officials say.
As of Wednesday, the lost-and-found inventory at the fair consisted of 95 credit cards, 85 pairs of glasses, 52 sets of keys, 36 cell phones, 36 pieces of jewelry, 11 single baby shoes, four strollers, three canes and boxes full of clothes and hats.
And one Indian-head sculpture.
In past years, items left behind included a set of dentures, an oxygen tank, crutches and a man’s birth certificate.
On July 6, the Guest Services/Lost and Found office will relocate to the marketing office. From July 7 on, guests can call 858-794-1124. In early September, any unclaimed items will be donated to charity.
If you call after hours — or after the fair ends — please leave a detailed message about what you lost, when you lost it and a description of the item, and your return phone number.
When calling for a lost cell phone, please include the phone brand (such as Samsung, iPhone) and the phone service (such as AT&T or Verizon), as well as any other information helpful in identifying your phone (such as distinctive case or custom decoration).
If you lost keys, please include information such as an approximate number of keys; whether they are car, home or office keys; whether there is a key ring decorative item, and if so, describe it, and other detailed information that will help fair employees.
