We are all moving a little bit slower today than yesterday. The farewell-to-summer-soiree featured tons of sunshine, vintage shopping, art, pets, music, food trucks, beer and community. Just three years ago, POP-UP Sunday was nothing but a crazy idea and each month we are humbled by the support of the community, sponsorship and volunteers. We raised over $300 for The Center for Volunteer CareGiving with help from Aviator Brewing Company, WUNC, Studio 123, and YOU. Thanks for being part of this local movement and we look forward to seeing you next month, September 27th!
Oak City Collective is giving away one of their most popular local t-shirts to a POP-UP Sunday fan. All you have to do is share this image link on Facebook and tag POP-UP Sunday. While you are at it, like us too! Each share is an entry to win (size small-XL). The lucky winner’s name will be picked Friday afternoon so hurry and get to sharing and tagging!
The charitable partners for this month are The Center for Volunteer Caregiving and Aviator Brewing Company. We have tons of awesome vintage and recycled art vendors lined up for you to shop, food trucks to keep your tummy full and yummy local beer to taste for a donation. POP-UP Sunday is a family and pet friendly event, noon til 5:00 pm, at 509 N. West Street in downtown Raleigh. FREE parking and admission-see you there!
It usually does not take fours days to recap POP-UP Sunday’s fun, but last weekend was epic. We raised $515 for Global H20 with help from Carolina Brewery’s delicious Sky Blue and IPA. Tons of shoppers left with bags of vintage goods and up-cycled art. The food was delicious. D’Burritos and Manna served up freshly made, yummy handhelds while Jay’s Italian Ice and 2 Roosters Ice Cream kept customers cool on the warm, summer afternoon. The Record Krate entertained with a mix of vinyl music and Studio 123 hauled in vintage tables and chairs to accommodate relaxing customers. POP-UP Sunday is a community effort and we want to thank everyone that helped produce, sponsor, vend, shop, eat and volunteer. It is a labor of love and we cannot wait to see everyone August 23rd!
P.S. Guess who made the paper? WE did-FRONT PAGE, News and Observer published an article about POP-UP Sunday that came out Monday morning……did you see it? Here is a link to the article and watch Cynthia’s video interview. YOU should be proud of what WE have done, together, for OUR community. Thanks again from the bottom of our tired little hearts!

After the crazy summer storms last week, Sunday proved to be one of those “perfect” summer days. Deep blue skies, a gentle breeze and warm sunshine boosted the attendance at POP-UP Sunday and helped empty the coolers full of Green Man Beer. We raised over $371 for The Green Chair Project, shopped, noshed and listened to vinyl records all afternoon. Thanks to the amazing vintage vendors and artists for raising the bar every month. We will be back July 26th, raising money for Global H2O with help from Carolina Brewery in Pittsboro.
