Beautiful Things in S. Stefano di Camastra

On Saturday we decided to take a drive. What else can we do! We started driving on SS 113 toward Palermo. Most of the time when we drive towards Palermo we drive on the autostrada. SS 113 for the most part hugs the coastline. We drove throught a few nice towns with interesting buildings. Then we got to S. Stefano. We didn't know anything about this town. A friend that Frank had in Pennsylvania came from there in the 70's to Berks County like Frank came from Falcone. Then we started seeing this beautiful pottery.

Look at these tables!

Artwork from HANDPAINTED tiles.


Look at this wall!

I knew that this was the city that I
would find the platter I wanted!

All different kinds of items here.

Cool buildings too!

More tile artwork.
You could buy sinks and matching vanities, decorated the same.
Light fixtures, dishes, ashtrays, things to hang on the walls, fountains, etc!!
We even saw a fireplace.

A nice way to spend an afternoon.
We even went into to a stroe and bought sandwiches for lunch.
That's a rarity here!
