By far the most interesting booth at Renninger's antique market in Adamstown PA was that of Martin Chitjian, who specializes in antique cash registers and Albert Einstein memorabilia.
I visited his booth on two Sundays, one week apart. The first Sunday his hair was long and wild - the spitting image of Einstein. By the next week when I'd come back with a camera, he'd gotten a haircut. But still a ringer.
When I asked him why he collected Einstein memorabilia, Chitjian replied: "Because he resembles me!" (not the other way around).
