Another theory maintains that "flea market" is a common English calque from the French "
" (literally "market of the fleas"). The first reference to this term appeared in two conflicting stories about a location in Paris in the 1860s which was known as the "
" (flea market).
Saint-Ouen is home to Paris' flea market, the highest concentration of antique dealers and second-hand furniture dealers in the world.. The flea market ("
") is held every Saturday, Sunday, and Monday; because of this high frequency, compared to other flea markets, it has tended to consist only of professionals who rent their spot for a minimum term of three years. In 2014 the flea market site was acquired by Jean-Cyrille Boutmy from Gerald Grosvenor, 6th Duke of Westminster.
The station lies just inside the city limits of Paris; to the north of the station is the commune of Saint-Ouen. Thus a short walk from the station is the "
de Saint-Ouen" (), a large flea market founded in the late 17th century and possibly where the term "flea market" originated about 1880. Nearby is the Cimetière de Saint-Ouen, a Roman Catholic cemetery associated with Joan of Arc.
The traditional and most-publicised story is in the article "What Is a Flea Market?" by Albert LaFarge in the 1998 winter edition of "Today's Flea Market" magazine: "There is a general agreement that the term 'Flea Market' is a literal translation of the French "
", an outdoor bazaar in Paris, France, named after those pesky little parasites of the order "Siphonaptera" (or "wingless bloodsucker") that infested the upholstery of old furniture brought out for sale."
The common English phrase "flea market" is a phraseological calque of the French ""
"" ("market with fleas"), as are the Czech ""bleší trh"", the Dutch ""vlooienmarkt"", the Finnish ""kirpputori"", the German ""Flohmarkt"", the Hebrew ""שוק הפשפשים"", the Hungarian ""bolhapiac"", the Italian ""mercatino delle pulci"", the Norwegian ""loppemarked"", the Polish """", the Serbo-Croatian ""buvljak"", the Spanish ""mercado de pulgas"", the Turkish ""bit pazarı"", and so on.

While browsing on the Brussels Voddenmarket/
at the Vossenplein in the Marollen, Tintin purchases an antique model ship which he intends to give Captain Haddock. Two strangers, model ship collector Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine and antique-scout Barnaby, independently try to persuade Tintin to sell the model to them. He also sees the two police detectives, Thomson and Thompson, on the look out for a pickpocket. At Tintin's flat, Snowy accidentally knocks the model over and breaks its mainmast. Having repaired it, and shown the ship to Haddock, Tintin discovers that the ship is named the "Unicorn", after a ship commanded by Haddock's ancestor. While Tintin is out, the ship is stolen from his apartment; in the investigation, he discovers that Sakharine owns an identical model, also named the "Unicorn". At home, Tintin discovers a miniature scroll, and realises that this must have been hidden in the mast of the model which Snowy had broken. Written on the parchment is a riddle: "Three brothers joyned. Three "Unicorns" in company sailing in the noonday sunne will speak. For 'tis from the light that light will dawn, and then shines forth the Eagle's cross".
Different English-speaking countries use various names for flea markets. In Australian English, they are also called 'trash and treasure markets'. In Philippine English, the word is "tianggê" from the Nahuatl "tianguis" via Mexican Spanish (despite common misconception, it is not derived from Hokkien), supplanting the indigenous term "talipapâ". In India it is known as "gurjari" or "shrukawadi bazaar" or even as "juna bazaar".. In the United Kingdom they are known as "car boot sales" if the event takes place in a field or car park, as the vendors will sell goods from the 'boot' (called "trunk" in American English) of their car. If the event is held indoors, such as a school or church hall, then it is usually known as either a "jumble sale", or a "bring and buy sale". In Quebec and France, they are often called "
", while in French-speaking areas of Belgium, the name "Brocante" or "vide-grenier" is normally used. In Switzerland the Swiss German language term "Flomärt", for example for the well-known Bürkliplatz-Flomärt is used, being a variation of the Allemanic word of "Flohmarkt", meaning literally "flea market". In the predominantly Cuban/Hispanic areas of South Florida, they are called "[el] pulgero" ("[the] flea store") from "pulga", the Spanish word for fleas.
Wilder was recognized with the AFI Life Achievement Award in 1986. In 1988, Wilder was awarded the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award. In 1993, he was awarded the National Medal of Arts. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Wilder became well known for owning one of the finest and most extensive art collections in Hollywood, mainly collecting modern art. As he described it in the mid 80s, "It's a sickness. I don't know how to stop myself. Call it bulimia if you want – or curiosity or passion. I have some Impressionists, some Picassos from every period, some mobiles by Calder. I also collect tiny Japanese trees, glass paperweights and Chinese vases. Name an object and I collect it." Wilder's artistic ambitions led him to create a series of works all his own. By the early 90s, Wilder had amassed a beguiling assortment of plastic-artistic constructions, many of which were made in collaboration with artist Bruce Houston. In 1993, art dealer Louis Stern, a longtime friend, helped organize an exhibition of Wilder's work at his Beverly Hills gallery. The exhibition was titled "Billy Wilder's
" and the "Variations on the Theme of Queen Nefertete" segment was an unqualified crowd pleaser. This series featured busts of the ravishing Egyptian queen wrapped "a la Christo" or splattered "a la Jackson Pollock" or sporting a Campbell's soup can in homage to Warhol.
