Raleigh & POP-UP Sunday are Getting Noticed

Woman's Health Blurb

We are glowing from POP-UP Sunday’s blurb in the October issue of Women’s Health Magazine. Raleigh is voted #3 (behind Austin, TX and Denver, CO) for it’s cool culture, local galleries and art markets. Pick up a paper copy or click through the link here to read more.

The next POP-UP Sunday is September 28, noon til 5pm. We will be raising money for 2nd Chance Pet Adoptions with help from Abita Beer, Wild@Art and Indie Kid Crafters. Check out all the art and vintage vendors here. Hungry? We will have plenty of delicious food from Chick-N-Que, D’Burritos and Jay’s Italian Ice.

Thanks Raleigh!

Patina South EDITWOW and THANKS to everyone that came by POP-UP Sunday, August 24th. It was a perfect day. The weather was the kind you daydream about when planning open air events. The vendors brought the best vintage stashes and recycled art. Shoppers were so eager to have first dibs at these collections, they trickled in before noon! The food was an excellent mix of D’Burritos , The Halal Bros and Jay’s Italian Ice. Records played, Kid crafters sold their wares, people tried tie dyeing for charity and beer was sipped. At the end of the day we raised $444 for Transitions Life Care (known as Hospice of Wake County since 1979).

Each month POP-UP Sunday gets a little bit bigger and a whole lot better. We want to thank everyone that volunteers, shops, sells and promotes this event. Together we have made a difference in our community, one month at a time.

New Crop is Coming August 24th

New CropHere at POP-UP Sunday headquarters, we have been building this local, community vibe for almost two years. Our goals have not changed. We really believe that making a difference in our community can be fun. Recently, we got an application from a company with a very similar philosophy. New Crop, from Austin, Texas, is coming here in August. This is huge news for our local event. They have traveled the world and collected vintage goods and handcrafted items from tiny corners, pop-ups and flea markets-ALL with a friendly smile and infectious manifesto. From Kaftans to beaded embroidery to tribal batik fabric, you will want to come see this collection.

POP-UP Sunday is August 24th, noon until 5:00 pm at Ornamentea in downtown Raleigh. We are expecting over 20 local vintage dealers and artists, food trucks and beer. This event is FREE and everyone is welcome. We will be raising money for Hospice of Wake County through donations and an interactive fabric dyeing mini class. See you there!

Wrapping Up July

money shot You gotta love North Carolina summer weather! As set up for POP-UP Sunday’s July RePeat got under way, the rain forecast went from 20% to 100%, ridiculously quick. Set up took a mandatory break for mother nature and the afternoon rewarded us with cooler than expected temperatures and lots of eager shoppers. Local media outlets came by and interviewed some artists and vintage dealers about the POP-UP scene in Raleigh. This is a turning point for POP-UP Sunday. Operating on a shoestring budget and helping our local community can be challenging. Word-of-mouth and press are the best advertising for small, local events like POP-UP Sunday. Thank you RA Jeffreys and Lonerider for quenching our thirst. Thank you Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore for being the ultimate recyclers. Thank you Chick-N-Que for feeding our bellies. Thank you vendors and artists for being amazing. Last but not least, a BIG thanks to all the shoppers and visitors for deciding to shop and have fun with us each month. We raised over $400 for Habitat for Humanity’s Wake ReStore and will be continuing to add to that until the next POP-UP Sunday event, August 24th.

Thanks Raleigh. We are humbled by your generosity.
