We are thrilled to announce most of our charitable partners and upcoming event dates are now decided. We have taken suggestions from shoppers and vendors, observed last year’s successes and added a few new partners to the list of POP-UP Sunday contributors. The application even got a little make over, one for vendors and one for those awesome Indie Kid crafters. We have landed on the 4th, not always the last, Sunday of the month for 2014 and plan to keep the website updated throughout the whole year. If you come one month and want to reference something you liked, all the information will be accessible. Our goal remains the same, fun, shopping, delicious food and making something crafty-ALL while making a difference in OUR community. We hope to see everyone March 23rd and watch the website for artist and vendor updates.
November’s Holiday Market was a bittersweet day filled with hugs and hi-fives. We raised $714.80 for Urban Ministries and spent the afternoon talking with vendors and shoppers about the positive influence POP-UP Sunday has made in our community. From a chilly March to a warm November, this year has been quite a learning experience. Each month marked more growth and community involvement. THANKS to ALL the artists, vendors, food trucks, charitable partners, sponsors, local press, crafty friends and visitors for the support. Together, we raised over $3000 for nine local charities including Motheread, Diaper Train, Haven House, SPCA of Wake County, Marbles Outreach Programs, Boys & Girls Club, Second Chance Pet Adoption, Hospice and Urban Ministries. You should be proud of your part in this growth whether it was a donation for beer, volunteering your time, purchasing from a local business, noshing on lunch from a truck or just showing up to see what is happening in your community.
It all came together and we made a difference in our community, one Sunday at a time.

Thank you for coming to October’s POP-UP Sunday and helping us raise money and awareness for Hospice of Wake County. The weather was perfect, food was yummy and the assortment of art and vintage was the best yet! We raised $300 for Hospice of Wake County in beer donations, raffle tickets and fabric dyeing activities. This is a POP-UP Sunday record, which makes Kim, of Leopold Designs, very, very happy. Many hugs and high-fives go to RA Jeffreys, Rocky Top Hospitality, Ornamentea, Leopold Designs, Carolina Rollergirls and Michael from Hospice for making the day such a success. POP-UP Sunday was created out of the love of meeting people, making things and making a difference. See you next month for the final hooray of 2013, Sunday, November 17th.
