Why is it called a flea market?
it come from the DS game called animal crossing: wild world
HA......hardly, this is the answer I found many times over:
I bought some nice blankets at a garage sale once, and they were really inexpensive. Unfortunately they gave me lice both on my head and elsewhere. I spent a minor fortune on Nix, and ended up burning not just those blankets, but all my blankets, sheets, pillowcases, pillows, and even my mattress, although I would have replaced my mattress in about another year or two, anyway. Teaches me right for trusting people in the parking… Read More
because everything they sell has fleas in it
It originated in France...there were the outdoor markets full of used furniture, clothing, household items and such and then there were the fleas (in the stuff) so it eventually was dubbed a "flea market".
The origins are disputed. The first name may have been Fly Market connected to New York in the 18th Century. Flea Market may have been a translation of the French Marche aux Puces, a reference to 'fleas' remaining in old furniture brought out for sale
They probably called it a flea market because fleas can crawl in and bite people up.
Because it has really nice things that people sale it for less money so it could get the adver4ge like it could get more people buying there because it is less so people would want to get it.
In the United States, flea markets are either called flea markets or swap meets. They could also be called a bizaar, a boot sale (UK), a farmer's market (although farmer's markets in the states are mostly limited to home-grown produce, honey, plants and that sort of item), and many churches and charities have such fundraising events as Spring Festivals, carnivals and the like. They make money by renting the spaces to vendors and sometimes asking… Read More
Trash & Treasure Market
car boot sale In the US they are called a tailgate market.
Well, according to a trivia game I was just playing run by a local radio station, it's called a "Trash and Treasure Market." The game only gives you one chance to get a right answer, I chose this one, and it was scored as correct, so I'm going with it.
you are rich and many people are not so they can shop from their but flea markets actually have good quality stuff and many rich people actually go there!! flea markets you rock!
No. Costco is a membership warehouse club.
A flea market is a place where people can buy and sell goods, usually second-hand. This is usually outdoors, though it can be indoors. The prices are open to bartering, and this is a much more common practice at a flea market than in a high street shop (for example). In the US I think it is also known as a "swap meet". The origin of the name is in dispute. It may come from… Read More
a flea market got its name because in the old days fleas used to live in the markets and products that they soled
A flea relies on a host (animal or human) to survive. A flea can also jump or travel from animal to animal, human to human, object (like yard grass) to animal or human. At a flea market 'a host' is the person who offers the space for vendors. The metaphor 'flea market' refers to how merchandise 'jumps or travels' from one former owner or owners to another new owner.
laws vary by state or region. Check your state laws or city laws to check.

The patrons at a flea market bounce all around from vendor to vendor, like fleas. I think this is the correct answer! :)
A lot of times if you buy a pet at a flea market they'll be very sick and likely to die. True, they are cheaper, but you should buy them from breeders or pet shops
Are you asking what are the advantages of owning a flea market or are you asking about the advantages of owning your own flea market business (selling at flea markets)? There are numerous advantages to selling at flea markets when compared to running a normal brick and mortar type business (such as a pizza shop or cafe, a card shop, etc. located in a strip mall). The brick and mortar business requires an investment of… Read More
There are flea markets in many parts of Oregon and they will be located in or near larger cities, such as Salem and Portland. But some will also be found in the smaller cities and towns, so don't just focus on the big cities. One of the best ways to locate flea markets in Oregon (or any state) is to do a Google or Yahoo search. Type 'flea markets, (State)' into the search window and… Read More

No my friend got 1 and it died immediately. I think they poison it or something or it carries disease.
When you sell at a pawn shop you won't get top dollar. This is also sometime for flea markets. Also keep in mind the amount of gas needed to cover the trip. If you take it to a pawn shop you will sell while at a flea market you might not have a buyer.
They can't...they do it illegally.
Probably because more people have off of work.

Flea markets occur in many different times and places. Your question is a bit like asking, when and where is bakery?
Flea in french is Puce, the phrase flea market comes from France when back in the days, the "marche aux puces" was infested with fleas.
There could be. What any given "flea market" has is not necessarily the same as any other, nor even the same as it had last week. You'd need to go there and find out for yourself.
Laws would be different in each city/town/state. You would really need to contact your local government office to see what they have on the books.
Depends on the Flea market in question.
No. The economy is down, and in fact, this is actually a HORRIBLE time to open up a flea market or any kind of store. Right now, no one wants to just go out and spend money, so this would be a bad time. Wait until the economy goes back up.
It depends on the reseller you are buying it from. There is really no specific price on the xbox. It can be completly random. like say the xbox is 130 dollars at gamestop which it really is okay a flea market would sell it for at least maybe 20 dollars that is just a guess but check the other shops and make sure the thing works right because your odds of getting your money back… Read More

I would have to say,the outside Flea Market In Beebe Arkansasit's been happening for many many years. People come from all over Arkansas.It's worth the drive,plus there's several inside Flea markets in beebe to check also
"Hawk" in that context means "to sell" as in the more common phrase "hawk your wares"
Eh? Really, NO.
Laws vary but most likely you'll need at least a vendors license.
You would spell it "flea market" rather than "flee market."
