Synonyms of "Jumble" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre jumble market e flea market ?
A: They are quite similar (and could be used either way round sometimes), but specifically, a jumble market (or jumble sale as it's more often called) is usually done in front of your house, on your garden or driveway, and sells things from your house that you don't want anymore. Sometimes people do these to raise money for charity as well. A flea market is a stall on a street that sells second hand items (already used items). The name 'flea market' comes from the fact that fleas are associated with old, dusty items that aren't clean, so it's probably an insult to call someone's stall a flea market 😂. A jumble sale is called that just because it has a 'jumble' of things (all kinds of random things) and they're being sold 👍

Q: Qual é a diferença entre jumble e mess ?
A: They very similar, but often used in different contexts. The differences are very subtle

'My thoughts are all in a jumble' or 'I got my things jumbled' I feel it has a slight emphasis on the fact that it was more of a clumsy mistake.
Whereas I feel a mess is a state of being, 'The room is messy', 'I have a messy car' This is just a normal description

So if you made a mistake you might say 'I have gotten into such a jumble'
But if you are just messy then 'Wow, My room has been very messy lately'
On another note, jumble is slightly childlike and not commonly used.
