Black Friday Vendor Sale at Fashion Square Mall.

On November 28th, 2014 there was a Black Friday Artist Vendor Sale at Fashion Square Mall hosted by The Culture Xchange Gallery And Marketplace 3201 E Colonial Dr, Orlando, Florida. The sale was open to all Local Vendors of Arts and Crafts, Local Fashion Brands and Local Bands and Musicians.

I searched the Mall hoping to get a sketch of this vibrant local marked. What I found was a small assortment of artists at maybe 10 tables. Some canvases were simply leaning against a wall. None of the art interested me. I decided to leave but from the second level I found this great view of this bungee trampoline. The kids lined up to use it. The assistant would buckle all the harnesses and then she would press a button which would slowly tighten the bungee chords using a truck winch which would launch the child higher. As parents waited nervously, he would scream for more until fear overtook joy and then she would ease up, bringing the child back down to earth with progressively smaller jumps.

The art market vendors can be seen in the background of the sketch so I can say that I found what I was looking for. I found the Art Market a bit depressing, but Orlando will always find ways to trill and excite as long as you keep looking.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
