Summary/Abstract: Along with "guests" from Bulgaria, Romania, and China, Serbs and Romanies are the most represented at flea markets. Romanies are, in such a rough competition, perceived as "the most industrious" salespersons: being from the beginning on the margins, they imposed their own way of life from the streets to surrounding peoples as a pattern success outside legal currents of work. They are embodiment of flea market - while flea market is "mirror of Serbian economy". While researching the possibilities of application of micro-entrepreneurial program among Romanies, we have steered a ray of light into three such mirrors, in flea markets of Vranje, Leskovac, and Bujanovac. For that purpose "Procedure for gathering information by direct observation of flea market - DBDJ/DT, 2001" has been constructed.
