"The Goods Show * Black Friday" offers alternative holiday shopping venue

SAN DIEGO – As part of its commitment to its members to provide a greater experience in their workspace, 3RDSPACE is presenting an arts market called "The Goods Show * Black Friday" on Friday, Nov. 25.

The event is a collective production that will showcase local artists and designers in a creative and lively market type scenario, with the goal of providing a progressive and intriguing arena for local artists to exhibit their creation to a community that fosters creativity, good intention and conscientious purchasing power.

As consumers flock to the malls and big-box retailers on the day after Thanksgiving to catch “Black Friday” deals, with some stores opening as early midnight, 3RDSPACE hopes that this shopping event will be different, and provide a service to the local and regional community.

“We chose this day to provide an alternative for people who would like to shop for the holidays in a creative and conscious way,” 3RDSPACE organizers said in a news release.

"The Goods Show * Black Friday" is dedicated to generating dialogue between the local community, artists, businesses and humanitarian causes through art, music, design, fashion and food. It is through these filters that we are able to raise money and awareness for Corazon de Vida.”

The event will support the Corazon de Vida Foundation, which according to its website, provides support to 16 orphanages and over 750 children in Mexico. The organization raises money, collects materials and provides volunteer support to benefit and empower the children it serves in Baja California.

3RDSPACE is a creative space that provides work areas for its members. It is described as a “community of interesting, talented and active members.” Those who have a membership with 3RDSPACE are able to use the venue to work, but also to collaborate.

“We believe that collaboration is much more than a trendy word, and is not achieved by the mere mention of it in a mission statement.” As such, 3RDSPACE is designed to maximize the sharing of ideas, while serving as a venue for members to host events and conduct business.

The sale will take place from noon to 8 pm, with an art reception to follow from 8 to 11 pm. Cover is $5 and will benefit Corazon de Vida.

3RDSPACE is located at 4610 Park Blvd. in the heart of the University Heights business district.
