Wonder about how Flea Market got it’s name?   People of New York City began the term in the early 1800s the “Fly Market” and it was the city’s principal market, as it still is in countries like China and India.

 I went to one of the first estate tag sales.  There was nothing to do that Saturday.  There were no expectations of finding anything in particular. I was going just look at other peoples stuff and house. Yep, I am a curious snoop of how other people live and especially like to look at old stuff.
