Pop-up shops are an easy and relatively inexpensive way for designers, stylists or retailers to create a shopping or beauty event with a festive, exclusive feel. Raleigh folks can get in on that fun with two pop-ups this week:
▪ Local clothing and accessory designers, artisans and crafters will bring their wares to Raleigh’s Glenwood South for the Pop-Up Sunday Vintage Market on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. in the Ornamentea parking lot. This month’s vendors include Gibson Girl Vintage, QuirkyGrrrl, Oak City Collective and Smiling Elephant Jewelry Studio, among others. In addition to the shops, there will be food truck fare, beer and more. For a full list of vendors, visit popupsunday.com.
▪ B.Out the Blow Dry Bar wraps its pop-up salon run at Studio 714 West in Raleigh Thursday with blowouts and styling from New York-based stylist Monica B. Barrette. The salon also will serve Champagne. Walk-ins are welcome, and appointments can be booked at boutblowdrybar.com.
Never miss a local story.
▪ StyleFinder Boutique in Raleigh will host local designer Kim Kirchstein of Leopold Designs for a trunk show of hand-dyed scarves and kimonos on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. Attendees can learn how to tie a scarf and enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres. For more info, call 919-828-7529.
