Have you ever been to a swap meet, Alyssa Bereznak ? You’d be surprised at how little they change from place to place. They’ve essentially been the same since judges would literally ride the circuit for court, and the whole county would turn out for the event.

Craigslist is the online version of the country swap meet. It doesn’t have to change, because the people that go don’t care about the way it looks.

They’re all about digging through the piles and bins, and finding a deal. They like the familiar faces that man the stalls. They’re all about the diamond-in-the-rough.

Craigslist will never die for the same reason swap meets won’t — people love them!
