Since the holidays, we have been hibernating, brainstorming and planning for the third year of POP-UP Sunday. The growth of this “little” community event has far exceeded our expectations in two years. We raised thousands of dollars for local charities and watched lots of small businesses grow their own network of customers and fans. With so many goals met, we must dream bigger!
Announcements will be made throughout February about vendors, charitable partners, yummy food, sponsorship and more. The event dates will be the fourth Sunday of each month, April through November. That’s right, mark your calendar for April 26th and tell all your friends-we cannot wait to see what a difference we can make in our community this year!
POP-UP Sunday 2014 is a wrap and we have a happiness hangover as we reflect on what an amazing difference we have made in the community. There are way too many people to thank, but we would like to give a big hug to everyone that shopped, vended, fed, volunteered and donated. Together, in 2014, we have raised over $3,500 for Habitat for Humanity, The Green Chair Project, 2nd Chance Pet Adoptions, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Triangle, Hospice, Urban Ministries, InterAct and SPCA. We have helped local businesses grow, met tons of new friends and even gotten published in a national magazine. Everyone at POP-UP Sunday headquarters is humbled by the support and we are already planning big things for next year! As we hibernate through the winter, we will be posting events and taking notes on things to make POP-UP Sunday 2015 even better. See you April 26th for the kick off party and have a safe and amazing holiday season. Thank YOU!
We have lots of recycled art and vintage vendors packing up and heading this way for a holiday shopping experience like no other. POP-UP Sunday is a FREE event for everyone. We have delicious Bold Rock Hard Cider and food trucks to keep your belly full while you mingle. This month’s event will feature the 2nd annual Ornamentea Staff Show and Sale. This is a perfect time to see what those helpful, crafty ladies make in their free time-and pick up a little something for yourself! POP-UP Sunday is this weekend, noon til 5:00 pm, in the parking lot and classroom at Ornamentea. Click here for additional information and updates on facebook.

This year’s Holiday Market is going to be the biggest yet. We have pulled together the most popular vendors from the past two years and they are all bringing their newest designs and best vintage collections to POP-UP Sunday, November, 23rd, noon until 5:00 pm. The lot is the same size, but we have shimmied the layout around to fit the most vendors possible. Any holiday shopping you need to do can be done here, while having a beer and supporting your community. The vendor list and links to websites can be found here.
The amazingly talented staff of Ornamentea will be participating in an additional inside shopping experience during POP-UP Sunday. More information about who and what you can expect coming soon.
Keep checking the facebook page and share the event with all your friends. This is the last POP-UP Sunday until April 2015-see you in a few weeks!
October’s POP-UP Sunday Vintage Market was perfect. Tons of friendly faces mingled through the flag draped village of rusty found objects, stunning modern vintage frocks and up-cycled art. The food was delicious. Tacos of every style, cold beer, Italian Ice and cupcakes were enjoyed by all. Lastly, the iffiest part of an open air event, the weather, was absolutely perfect. Everyone at POP-UP Sunday headquarters has a happiness hangover today. We could not do it without all of the amazing vendors, volunteers, community support and you. Urban Ministries was our charitable partner and we raised $277.69 that will help people right here in our community. We are continuing to put the “FUN” in fundraising, one month at a time.
See you November 23rd for the last POP-UP Sunday of 2014! We will have more vendors than ever before, holiday gifts and a crafty good time-save the date!
