We are so excited about the line up of talented artists and vintage collectors we have selected for this weekend’s POP-UP Sunday. You can see a complete list of participants here with links to their websites and social media pages. This month we have a perfect mix of community including D’Burritos and The Halal Bros food trucks, Carolina Brewery Beer, Jay’s Italian Ice and a fabric dyeing project that will help raise money and awareness for Hospice of Wake County. POP-UP Sunday is FREE and family friendly. We hope you come mingle, shop local, craft and eat something delicious this Sunday, noon til 5:00 pm, at 509 N. West Street.
If you have other plans, cancel them and come see this vintage and artisan made collection. We are bringing worldly art and clothing to downtown Raleigh for an afternoon of relaxed, flea market-style shopping. See our other vendors right here.
Here at POP-UP Sunday headquarters, we have been building this local, community vibe for almost two years. Our goals have not changed. We really believe that making a difference in our community can be fun. Recently, we got an application from a company with a very similar philosophy. New Crop, from Austin, Texas, is coming here in August. This is huge news for our local event. They have traveled the world and collected vintage goods and handcrafted items from tiny corners, pop-ups and flea markets-ALL with a friendly smile and infectious manifesto. From Kaftans to beaded embroidery to tribal batik fabric, you will want to come see this collection.
POP-UP Sunday is August 24th, noon until 5:00 pm at Ornamentea in downtown Raleigh. We are expecting over 20 local vintage dealers and artists, food trucks and beer. This event is FREE and everyone is welcome. We will be raising money for Hospice of Wake County through donations and an interactive fabric dyeing mini class. See you there!
You gotta love North Carolina summer weather! As set up for POP-UP Sunday’s July RePeat got under way, the rain forecast went from 20% to 100%, ridiculously quick. Set up took a mandatory break for mother nature and the afternoon rewarded us with cooler than expected temperatures and lots of eager shoppers. Local media outlets came by and interviewed some artists and vintage dealers about the POP-UP scene in Raleigh. This is a turning point for POP-UP Sunday. Operating on a shoestring budget and helping our local community can be challenging. Word-of-mouth and press are the best advertising for small, local events like POP-UP Sunday. Thank you RA Jeffreys and Lonerider for quenching our thirst. Thank you Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore for being the ultimate recyclers. Thank you Chick-N-Que for feeding our bellies. Thank you vendors and artists for being amazing. Last but not least, a BIG thanks to all the shoppers and visitors for deciding to shop and have fun with us each month. We raised over $400 for Habitat for Humanity’s Wake ReStore and will be continuing to add to that until the next POP-UP Sunday event, August 24th.
Thanks Raleigh. We are humbled by your generosity.
We are thrilled about the return of Habitat for Humanity’s Wake ReStore as July’s charitable partner. They provides employment, affordable building materials and outreach for various groups and families. Recycling, helping the community and having fun make Wake ReStore the perfect choice for POP-UP Sunday’s Fun & Fundraising campaign.
