I have a soft spot for Sicilian open air markets, you never know what you will find.
Every town has a market day where traveling salesmen set up their stalls to sell everything from household goods, groceries, fruit and vegetable, toys and clothes.
Here is a one Euro stand which has attracted some men into the world of shopping at Piazza Armerina near Enna as it was filled with manly things like tools and other assorted hardware, usually it is the women rummaging for the bargains.
You have got to love the bare-chested gold necklace wearing store owner, so kitsch.

And the chest wig….!
It was so impressive, I had to share it with the world! So ‘macho’…
Ha ha! Did Signor Chestwig have his white vest in the back pocket of his shorts?
You can’t keep that much chest hair hidden from the world, so why hide it?
… and he even has the matching velcro chest. Wowsers. He should attract macho men wielding spanners and beer guts from miles around. I’ve spotted the “odd one out” on his stand – a broom head! What do I win? 😀
I know pretty impressive chest hair! Congrats you win an autographed photo from Mr ‘gold chain’ 2014 …
haha! that looks like some of the markets here in Casablanca!
Yes, the tradition of open air markets stems from the so called ‘Arab’ period of Sicily in the 12th Century. I love it!
Wow, that is a lot of random crap! (But I like his laid-back style!)
There was a lot of stuff to sort through. I like how it was a stall dominated by men, usually women are shifting through the bargain bins at markets!
