Callers have gotten into the spirit of the ad. The first lady who called said she had a "galactic" interest in the items.
My PhD son-in-law devised the ad after the two of us hauled it from upstairs down to our garage. My original intention was to put it in the basement then call 1-800-GOTJUNK later when we had other stuff to get rid of. He suggested Craigslist. Giving it away would guarantee it would get a new home fast, and he had fun composing the ad.
The ad went up around 11:30 a.m. on a Saturday. By 1:30 the desk was loaded into an F150 and on its way to its new home 20 miles away.
