This article questions whether the internet can subsitute for retail stores in Chicago. The exploration of supply, demand, and geographic practices reveals complex alterations, rather than a displacement of second-hand markets by eBay. It also finds substantive integration, fluidity, and hybridization within and across market sectors.
