“To the stack, everyone to the stack! Everything in the stack for 5 lei!”, shouted the gypsies from the Borough, trying to attract potential customers. Every weekend, near the periphery of a Southern Romanian city, hundreds of vendors gather inside an abandoned hall, to sell all things used, found, unwanted, or imported. Bargaining is one of the favorite activities of the visitors. At incredibly low prices, products like valuable antiquities, luxury brand perfumes, garments and even electronics, are waiting for a new home. For 5 lei (1.2 dollars), you can get yourself a pair of jeans, a plush toy, a landscape canvas or a phone case.
In the morning sun of July, under the heavy concrete pillars, a cosmic market is revealed, where all things are possible for the one who digs deep.
