We are SO excited to have POP-UP Sunday as one of our Master Sponsors for The Handmade Market this fall. They are sort of like a cousin to us!
Have you been to POP-UP Sunday yet? This mini flea market happens once a month, April through November, at the corner of West and Johnson Streets in downtown Raleigh. For a few hours (noon til 5 pm to be exact) the gravel-covered parking lot of Ornamentea turns into a POP-UP market with food trucks, beer, and amazing vintage finds. The vendors are handpicked with an emphasis on hard to find vintage wares, clothing, and recycled art. The event books months in advance and consistently rotates vendors from all over the US, even as far as Austin, TX. Tents, umbrellas, and vintage camper styled shops line the edges of the fun with money being raised each month for a different local charity.
Tracey Johnson, owner of Patina South, and Cynthia Deis, owner of Ornamentea, are the trailblazing organizers of POP-UP Sunday. “We are amazed at just how much support we have gotten from the local community for this little event. The idea of having an event that helps local businesses meet new customers, neighbors mingle, and raises money for charity seemed needed-fun and fundraising.”
Recently, POP-UP Sunday was mentioned in Women’s Health Magazine as one of the contributing factors to Raleigh’s #3 ranking (behind Austin and Denver) as a “social climber” with lots of cool culture. The Handmade Market and downtown’s First Friday events were also mentioned … nice list of local must-see and dos!
October 26th and November 23rd are the last two dates for POP-UP Sunday in 2014. Mark your calendar for both and bring a crowd. This event is pet friendly and there is always something for kids to do, thanks to Wild@Art.
