the closing of most of the local flea markets to me, I had to
venture elsewhere to shop. One afternoon in between work and night
classes, it was time to waste time and spend money. A few weeks before
I had noticed a large flea market sign in
Clarksville, Indiana. With a little bit of driving I tracked the place
down. Upon first entering the store it looked like the usual junk. At
the first booth there was a long wooden rectangular box sitting on
it's end. I initially walked past it but out of the corner of my eye
I noticed wires hanging out of it. Long story short I ended up
dragging this one home. Other than the missing lamp hood it seems to
be complete. It even has an almost full set of globe tubes including
one of the blue glass Arcturus types.
