CARROLL GARDENS—The Brooklyn Indie Market, located under a large tent on Smith Street near Union Street, has a special event planned for late October. On the 25th, they'll be hosting a Steampunk fashion show at 2pm, and will dedicate the day to vintage style. There will also be a Steampunk talk and reading, a DJ, and "Victorian inspired refreshments." [RackedWire]
