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.
This weekend’s POP-UP Sunday Vintage Market’s forecast looks great! We live in North Carolina, so it is always unpredictable….but we think when you bring good people to a feel good event, everyone wins. This month’s charitable partners are The Green Chair Project and Green Man Brewery. (Both obviously have a favorite color.) The Green Chair Project’s mission is to reuse donated items and renew lives of people recovering from homelessness, crisis or disaster. Based in Raleigh, this amazing charity gives hope to those in our community that have suffered overwhelming loss. Every single penny donated at POP-UP Sunday goes to The Green Chair Project. Every. Single. Cent. Green Man Brewery has generously donated tons of beer for the cause. This beer is brewed fresh in Asheville, NC. If you want to try a cold one, simply put some cash in the donation jar and people in our community will thrive. The donation amount is up to you-give what you can and enjoy a Green Man. Hey, that rhymes! See you Sunday, noon until 5:00 pm in the parking lot of Ornamentea, 509 N. West Street.
We are so thrilled about our newest sponsor, Seaboard Studio 123. They are the ever-changing, hip, home decor shop that just moved from Seaboard Station to 1505 Capital Boulevard. More space means more stuff-and they have tons of furnishings. Each month, there will be a smattering of beautiful, vintage furniture throughout POP-UP Sunday’s event. This is going to enhance the vintage vibe and shopping experience. Thanks to Seaboard Studio 123 and all our generous sponsors for making POP-UP Sunday the best community shopping event in Raleigh!
We hope to see you June 28th, noon to 5pm.
Sunday, May 24th, 2015, POP-UP Sunday history was made and we are thrilled and humbled by the support of our community. With tons of volunteers, sponsors and amazing vendors, we threw a big block party for downtown Raleigh and proved-once again-that raising money and awareness can be FUN. Abita Beer (especially the Strawberry Harvest) kept shoppers cool and helped raise over $575 for Safe Haven for Cats. The Vintage market exploded with vendors coming from as far as Virginia to be part of our community event. If you missed the fun, mark your calendar for June 28th because there is no stopping us now……THANK YOU!
POP-UP Sunday first entered the downtown Raleigh scene in spring of 2013. Since then, the demand for quality vintage wares and clothing has grown so much the market is now mostly a vintage and antique flea market. Many vendors are local, but some travel from places such as Austin, Virginia, Wilmington and more which provides a nice smattering of various vintage collections. Raleigh is catching up with Charlotte in this once Fairgrounds Flea Market only shopping experience. Such local shops as SuZanna’s Antiques, Revolver and Cheshire Cat Antique Mall keep local shoppers happy on a regular basis, but Raleigh is growing and wanting more and more. The traveling gypsy-style market POP-UP Sunday provides is meeting that demand and having a good time in the process.
This weekend’s POP-UP Sunday is going to be record breaking. The weather looks amazing, Abita Beer is coming and kittens from Safe Haven for Cats will be on site for snuggling. Make plans to come this Sunday, noon until 5:00 pm, at 509 N. West Street (Ornamentea) in downtown Raleigh. This is a family and pet friendly event with tons of food, music and shopping for all!
Make plans to come to POP-UP Sunday next weekend, May 24th, from noon until 5:00 pm. Food trucks, beer and tons of swanky vintage dealers and artists will be setting up, flea market-style at 509 N. West Street. This is a family and pet friendly event with NO admission fee.
Siggy Parker’s General Store is coming to POP-UP Sunday May 24th! All the way from Wilmington, NC, this kitschy shop brings vintage junk and fine funk to another level. Check out their facebook page and website for a smattering of what they have to offer and help us welcome them to Raleigh for a Memorial Weekend Staycation Block Party.
POP-UP Sunday is family and pet friendly-so come on down to 509 N. West Street, May 24th, noon until 5pm.
