Event: August Vintage Popup Shop at Spacecraft Studios

Runaround Sue Vintage is pleased to announce the online boutique has been invited to join Spacecraft Studio’s one-year anniversary celebration this August 24th by setting up a popup shop on the premises from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Runaround Sue Vintage clothing, hats, jewelry, aprons, scarves, and more will be available for purchase all day at Spacecraft Studios in Avondaleright behind Papa Murphy’s Pizza.

Perusers can buy vintage buttons ($1 a pop) constructed using Spacecraft’s 1” button maker and cutouts from vintage magazines and sewing patterns. Guests will also have the opportunity to make their own buttons from either onsite materials or paper designs they’ve brought in themselves.

Local Charleston artist and seamstress Camela Guevara will join in as our Seamstress Onsite to tailor a Runaround Sue Vintage find to desired measurements. Guevara will be customizing/sewing up a storm from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Spacecraft will also host an evening soiree from 7-10 p.m. after the popup shop has closed down. The craft studio will be open 11 a.m. -5.30 p.m. for anyone who wants to pop in and purchase a Spacecraft gift card or something from the studio’s own boutique.

Refreshment, music, and craftiness will be abundant all day and night! More details will unfold as the event nears. Stay informed via Facebook at
