Just in time for Mother’s Day, Elizabeth Galecke is joining POP-UP Sunday, April 26th, for mini photo sessions. Gather your kids, pets, mom, friends or the whole family and get down to Ornamentea for a 15 minute, professional photo session. Elizabeth will snap tons of posed and casual shots with Raleigh’s urban skyline as the backdrop. The session, which includes a 5×7 print, is only $40. Call or email Elizabeth directly to schedule-this is expected to book up fast!
Today is the first day of Spring…..only obvious if you actually look at the calendar, BUT still-Happy Spring EVERYONE! We are bustling through preparations and plans for POP-UP Sunday’s Kick-Off Party, April 26th, at Ornamentea in downtown Raleigh.
Healing Ceilings and Sweetwater Brewing Company will be our first 2015 charitable partners. Delicious beer will be available to anyone making a donation. If you have not heard about the amazing work of Healing Ceilings, please read more about their mission here. The president and founder, Amy Jo Edwards, set out to change the boring, sterile environment of local cancer treatment facilities after her husband’s second battle with cancer a few years ago. Her mission to bring visual vacations and inspiration to people going through treatment has changed many lives in our community. We cannot wait to break previous donation records and help spread this awesome message-ART HEALS!
For additional information about POP-UP Sunday, Healing Ceilings, Sweetwater Brewing Company and how you can help make a difference in OUR community, please like our facebook page and come April 26th, 2015, noon til 5:00 pm.
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!

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!
