We want to thank everyone that came out and braved the damp afternoon last Sunday. We had tons of beer, vintage goodies, art, puppies, yummy food and kid crafters to brighten up the otherwise gloomy weekend. At the end of the day, we raised $185 for the SPCA of Wake County. This amount is not record breaking, but we will continue to add to it throughout the month inside Ornamentea. If you missed POP-UP Sunday, and love puppies, please consider dropping by and donating whatever you can. We have lots of Big Boss Beer left over too. If you want to join us for First Friday, we will gladly trade you one or two for a cash donation to the cause. As we look forward to the last two events of 2015, we cannot help but be proud of what a difference POP-UP Sunday has made in our community. It is humbling and we could not have done it without YOU! See you October 25th….and watch the website for updates throughout the month.
An extra special THANK YOU goes to our new friends at Elan City Center. They make working hard look fun and fit right into the POP-UP Sunday community!
This month’s charitable partner is the SPCA of Wake County. Our local beer partner is Big Boss Brewing Company. That is correct! Puppies and beer are coming to POP-UP Sunday this weekend for your cuddling and tasting pleasure. This event is FREE and open noon until 5pm this Sunday at 509 N. West Street. Over 20 vintage vendors, artists and food trucks will be open for business in a sea of tents an umbrella shops. This event is pet and kid friendly.
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!

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!
