How hard is it?

To get rid of a 6ft bookcase?

Seemingly impossible, as I have advertised it three times on freecycle, but each time they call me at the last moment and say they can't take it... Dang I feel cursed by it.

I have managed to 'offload' sorry give away

a steamer
a slowcooker
a bag of blankets
a bag of knitting wool
a bag of assorted videos - james bond and adventure ones
and another bookcase, only 5 1/2 ft high

While I love freecycling goods, I do feel somewhat disheartened at other people's responses to the bookcase.

Where else can I try? anyone have any bright ideas

Congratulations on getting rid of so much stuff! It is really annoying when you get "stood up" by someone on Freecycle.

Some ideas for getting rid of it:
Do you have a Craig's List in you area? You might also try posting an ad in your local newspaper.

Do you have a local hospice who take furniture, we have one here you just ring and they come and collect it...might be worth a try..xx

Do you have a local Emmaus shop? They will take furniture that can be sold on.
