December brings a very important annual event to Orlando: another installment of the Grandma Party Bazaar. (It used to be every so often, but these days its a holiday-ish affair.) Oh, you say, another crafty market, you say, Sure, all right. But no. No, no, no. You need to focus on the word party just as much as bazaar; GmaPty is a True Orlando Thing born here, perfected here, deeply, deeply Of Here. The photo booth? Backdrop designed by Doug Rhodehamel, so just plan your engagement/baby/whatever pics to fall on Sunday because you wont find a better spot. The bands? All formed in 2012-2013, thus exposing your brain, heart and earholes to a brand-new range of kickassery. The vintage vendors? New, and mostly without local brick-and-mortar storefronts, so the only place to try that crazy jumpsuit on is right here. And did we mention the wandering circus performers? Youll find beard oil, terrariums, hammocks, zines, aprons, bitters, stationery, forktopi, artisanal nail polish, original art and more all made by hand and waiting just for you in Your City Beautiful.
