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.
We are glowing from POP-UP Sunday’s blurb in the October issue of Women’s Health Magazine. Raleigh is voted #3 (behind Austin, TX and Denver, CO) for it’s cool culture, local galleries and art markets. Pick up a paper copy or click through the link here to read more.
The next POP-UP Sunday is September 28, noon til 5pm. We will be raising money for 2nd Chance Pet Adoptions with help from Abita Beer, Wild@Art and Indie Kid Crafters. Check out all the art and vintage vendors here. Hungry? We will have plenty of delicious food from Chick-N-Que, D’Burritos, Gluten Free with Sarah B. and Citizen Yogurt Pops.
New Crop is coming to Pop-Up Sunday on August 24th!
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!
