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!
New to POP-UP Sunday, Jive and Honey take vintage furniture, add a little love and refinish it with a modern twist. We are thrilled to have them and hope they become a regular vendor in the future. Sunday, noon til 5pm at 509 N. West Street-see you there!
We have vendors coming to Raleigh from all over the state this weekend. Do not miss POP-UP Sunday, noon til 5:00 pm.

Last weekend was perfect. The weather could not have been better. We raised over $360 for Second Chance Pet Adoptions and found new homes for a few cuddly orphans. The vintage collections and re-purposed art made it hard to decide on a favorite shop. We had cupcakes, food trucks, beer and talented kid crafters sprinkled throughout the market. We hope you had a chance to come by and mingle, but if you didn’t, mark your calendar for next month, October 26th, when we will do it all over again.
POP-UP Sunday is a local event that will continue to grow and expand with community support. Our hope is the same now as it was in the early 2013 planning stages-invite everyone, support local businesses, raise awareness & money for local causes, enjoy delicious food, drink a beer and have a good time doing all of it. We are thrilled with the warm reception and acknowledgements, both at the local and national level. Once the demand is needed, we plan to take POP-UP Sunday to next level.
With only 2 events left this year, we have lots of exciting things planned. In October, we will partner with R.A. Jeffreys to raise money for Urban Ministries of Wake County. In 2013 they were POP-UP Sunday’s highest earning charity with totals of over $700 in donations. We will have a delicious local beer available (T.B.A.) and tons of vintage finds, recycled & re-purposed art, food trucks and crafty kids. It is going to be great and we hope you will come see what fun making a difference can be!
Come by POP-UP Sunday anytime, noon til 5pm, and see how much fun shopping can be. We will be raising money for 2nd Chance Pet Adoptions, eating yummy food from trucks, dancing to vintage vinyl records and sipping Abita Beer. That is right-you can shop, drink beer and mingle with the community on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. Everyone is welcome, even pets! For more information on vendors & happenings, click here.
