As of last Friday, September 23, it is officially the fall season! If you have been reading my blog lately, you will probably remember that I started a fall challenge as a way to get more into the spirit of fall (if you missed my post, check it out here).
Wandering around the flea market made me think to myself, "where in the world did they get the name 'flea market' from?" I decided to look it up. According to Word-Detective.com, we don't know for sure where the name came from. The best guess, however, comes from the popular Le Marche aux Puces (that's the "market of the fleas" for all you non-French speakers) in Paris. The name came from the belief that the merchants' goods were more than likely infested with fleas. For more information, you can read the full article here.
Have you ever been to the flea market? If so, what did you think? What was your best find? Are you willing to check one out now that you know more about them?
I look forward to my next adventure, and I hope you do too! :)
