tomorrow at brooklyn indie market

I won’t be able to make it, but maybe you can go and support some local artisans tomorrow from 11am to 7pm at the Brooklyn Indie Market (Smith & Union, Carroll Gardens).

The theme tomorrow is Steampunk, which according to wiki editors at Wikipedia is a “subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s.” Think Victorian England mixed with sci-fi fantasy (Jules Verne, HG Wells).

Two designers of note:

  • Sylvia Holden whose deconstructed fashion is made from recycled materials
  • Wren of Purevile whose often macabre one-of-a-kind jewelry is fashioned from antiques and such (like bones and doll parts)

Looks like I’ll be missing out!
