The first Saturday of this month once again I went to the flea market. I didn't have that much time, we were heading to the beach, but I was anxious to go and find the missing letter E from last month's buys that I talked about right here.
I didn't want to look for anything else other than the letter E, so I went pretty quickly looking for the guys with the big truck and lots of boxes that were set up in the second line last month.
This time they were not in the second line, not even in the third of fourth line :(
They were not there at all!
My whole family was waiting for me in the car so we could all go to the beach, after a quick look back I began to walk away.
But hey, something tickled my eye.
Of course, it had to have circles. I went straight to it...
an Armillary Sphere
I quickly paid the two dollars the lady asked me for and went away happily with my new treasure on my hands.
I don't know what it is about Armillary Spheres that I love them so much?
Look at this beauties I found online:
Armillary spheres were first constructed as observational tools, then in the medieval period as tools for teaching the principles of the Ptolemaic, Earth-centered astronomy.
Have you seen this one in NY?

I painted mine all white, it is not as pretty as the previous ones but I like it adorning my living room :)
As for the letter E, I simply have to wait until next month :/
