BACKSTORY: The craigslist posting for this yardsale mentioned a queen size mattress & box springs for $25. So when we got there, we inquired and exchanged information in case she didn't sell it. We called a few days later, and she still had it. She was moving to California, so she didn't need the mattress anymore. We asked her when she was leaving, so that we could do the extra-nice step of getting it after her last night of sleeping in Virginia. So we took 2 of our cars and drove over there again to get it. When we got there, she changed her mind about the price and gave it to us for free because she would have had to pay to have someone pick it up. Win!
