While I don't doubt more people are both selling stuff to raise cash and looking for bargains on used stuff, this particular chart could also show an increase in craigslist users.

Fascinating.

So what... how does it compare to Craig'slist total listings? Might those be up 100% too? After all, listings are free, and things sell there. Only a damned fool would not use it once they discovered the possibilities and alternatives (PAID advertising).
I should also ask what the y/y comparison is with newspaper classifieds which are beyond the shadow of a doubt lower y/y.
So, in summary, ads go to low cost and what works. Don't know that the graph means squat beyond that....
