A young girl dancing on the table in the restaurant  where the final celebration of the “bride market” takes place. The gathering of Tinsmiths Roma at the Bachkovo monastery on the day of  the Assumption of  the Virgin Mary is often called a “bride market”. The Tinsmiths marry only within their own clan and gatherings like this one are used so the unmarried youths are able to get know each other.
