Kick Bright Vintage Shop & Button Manufacturer Opens Up In The Milk District Orlando March 2023

We’ve got good news! We are officially back in a “brick and mortar” store!!!!!

Come celebrate with us for our Grand Opening Saturday March 25, 2023! We’ll be open from noon until 10pm. We’ll have special exclusive buttons available only for the event and other top secret surprises. There will be bands/music in the parking lot around 7pm (Circuit Church will be happening).

We’ll have out new vintage clothing selections, decorative kitschy artwork, toys & collectibles and our “world famous” button wall will be in full effect.

We’re just east of Downtown Orlando in the Milk District. Our address is 2436 E Robinson Street Orlando Florida 32803.

If that address sounds familiar it is! We did a two month stint at 2430 E Robinson at the beginning of 2022 as part of the incubator program organized by Zach Alfson, director of the Milk District Main Streets Orlando. Also, this stand alone building in the back parking lot was the former location of Vinyl Richie’s Wiggly World of Records and a previous location of Etoile Boutique, who now operate a few doors down.

We’ve got great neighbors like The Nook on Robinson, Etoile Boutique, Holey Rabbit Tattoos. Of course there’s Gringos Locos, Stasios, Sideward Brewery, Iron Cow, MX Tacos, Black Magic Pizza, Beefy King, Liberty Barbershop, Kyle’s Bike Shop, Pom-Poms, Retro Records and a plethora of other cool places within walking distance.

We’re open now but we’re gonna have a party all day to celebrate our hard work.

Our hours right now are:
Tuesday 6pm-10pm for Tasty Takeover, a weekly food truck event in our parking lot.
Wednesday CLOSED
Thursday 12-6pm
Friday 12-6pm
Saturday 12-6pm
Sunday 12-5pm

We’ll still be doing pop up markets and conventions so we’ll still be out there in some way but we really really really want you to stop by the new place to show you what we’ve done.

We’ve come a long way since our annual yard sales, right?

Return of Hot Hands, the Band


It’s true! We are playing a show. I know a lot of people know us just from Artegon and vending around Central Florida. We are also a band! Well, we’ve been in lots of different bands over the years but Hot Hands is just us. We’ve toured all over the country, in fact. Our last big tour was almost six months long going from coast to coast! Then we opened our shop at Artegon Marketplace and worked seven days a week for almost two years. That didn’t leave us any time for music!

So here we are.

We went ahead and booked a show to force us back into music. We put together a show at our favorite place, Wills Pub. Will Walker has been very supportive of us and we are thankful we can do this at his place. The bands we have lined up to play with us are all friends that also have been supportive of us getting back into playing music. We like all kinds of music so the bands will be mixed genres. So, for us at least, are going to have a good time.

Please come out and see us, especially if you have never seen us play. It will be a treat for us both. And for those that have seen us– come on down!

We will have cassettes, CDs, stickers, buttons and t-shirts!

Wednesday July 17, 2019
@ Wills Pub. 1042 N. Mills Ave Orlando FL 
8pm doors, $7, 21&up.
With: Mother Juno, Awesome and the Asskissers, Alien Witch.

Kick Bright Gets Chalky

Kick Bright will be attending the Community Chalk Art Festival organized by the Gateway Orlando District on Saturday March 30th from 10am – 5pm. We will have our buttons of all the nations of the world available! Come represent and celebrate wherever you are from!

From the press release:

This is a community building event that will allow our residents to experience art as it emerges. This cultural event is called “Faces and Places of the World” and is designed to enhance understanding and appreciation of our community’s diversity, while simultaneously providing exposure to the arts. This form of performance art began in 16th century Italy with itinerant artists, many of whom had been brought into the cities to work on the huge cathedrals. When the work was done, they would often recreate the paintings of the Madonna onto the pavement. They became known as I Madonnari. The creation of a large and intricate chalk painting may take hours or days to complete, only to be gone after the next rain. The artists will tell you that the process is more important than the finished piece and that spectators are a vital part of the performance as they view the work in various stages.

This is a one day event from 10 AM to 5 PM in partnership with Halifax Health – Hospice and the Community Improvement Initiative. The beneficiary will be for BeginAgain Children’s Grief’s Center, a program of Halifax Health – Hospice, because every child deserves a place to grieve and help to heal.

There will be food trucks and live performances that represent cultures from all over the world. This event is free to attend and is open to the public!

Tune in to NPR Friday afternoon around 4:50pm to hear the organizer speak about the event!
