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!

How can it already be the end of July? 2015 is flying by and we are raising tons of money for all sorts of Raleigh based charities. This month, we have partnered with Global H2O and Carolina Brewery in Pittsboro. Tons of beer is headed to POP-UP Sunday to be tasted and shared with anyone (of legal drinking age) making a donation to Global H2O. If you have not heard about what a difference this amazing locally founded charity is making in the world, please check out their website here.
As usual, we have tons of vintage vendors, recycled art, Indie Kid’s crafts, food trucks and more lined up to keep you busy this Sunday, noon until 5:00 pm, in the parking lot of Ornamentea (509 N. West Street, downtown Raleigh). This event is family and pet friendly!
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!
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!
