This year's poster and the offerings from one of the small vendors ... something that Mitello does that I haven't noticed other towns doing, is that many of the vendors are set up in the doorways of their homes.

A nice thing about small towns is not having a bazillion of different streets ... your home or business can be identified with just the unit number. Many are decorated with flowers, fruits or designs just as this one is.

October seems to be the month of festivals here in Sicily ... last weekend DH and I went to both the Pistachio Festival in Bronte and also the Octobratta Festival in Zafferana Etnea. Octobratta is held every Sunday in October and celebrates everything grown on Etna. Each Sunday focuses on one specific item - last Sunday was grapes. Other Sundays will feature honey, chestnuts, wine, apples and mushrooms.

|Another store display ... my thoughts were why waste pistaschios glueing them onto the boots and why ruin the boots?|
