Any Luck Selling, Donating, or Recycling Pews? Do You Need Pews?

Have any of you successfully sold or donated your pews when you take them out? We are putting in chairs and it seems like everywhere I look, all I see are others trying to sell or donate their pews. Wondering if anyone has had luck with this. Or maybe even donating them to someone who will repurpose them?

My church has switched entirely to chairs. I had put out a call for free pews to any CRC church (I think through the Network, but not sure) and also emailed the local churches of all denominations. A local church wanted the pew cushions, but not our solid oak pews, which we gave to them.
We ended up offering the pews to the church body and many were taken this way. Some were even cut to a requested size. Remaining pews were picked up to be used for making stairs in someone's home.
