Miss Scorpio teams up with fellow dress-up addicts and craft-makers for some closet-cleaning and handmade clothing & accessory shopping. Think one-of-a-kind vintage, feathers and fascinators, unique jewelry, and lots and lots of sparkles. Of course even divas have days off, so there will be plenty of cheap casual wear finds alongside costume and vintage pieces. Plus: by-donation champagne, chill soundtrack, and lounging in our awesome loft and sprawling roof. Perfect laid back Sunday.

New for this Earth Day edition: we're taking over a green-minded gallery with a lovely garden just around the corner, and doing a pop-up art show along with an expanded market vendor selection, and some local sustainability orgs.

Vendor and artist call for Goldmine pop-up market Sun 4/22 (Earth Day)

Calling all fine artists and makers/vendors of crafts, thrift, vintage​, accessories and of green/sustainable items and services​! Goldmine is a quarterly no-fee pop-up market, organized by Gemini and Scorpio, and located at the Gemini and Scorpio Loft in Gowanus, BK. For this edition of Goldmine, we also take over a gallery on the next block (​313 Butler Gallery - a classic white box with a lovely garden) to add a fine art component and more market space. What works best at Goldmine is wearables in theatrical over-the-top style, or otherwise artistic and unique items (not basics): fascinators, hats, lingerie, headpieces, masks, costumes. Larger items (furniture, housewares) are welcome too, now that we have a ground floor location. You don't have to be an actual vendor in your daily life, just have ​to have ​unique items for sale (clean out those closets!). It's Earth Day on 4/22, so an emphasis on upcycled or sustainable materials, or otherwise relevant items for sale would be great. Organizations that do community work in that realm, and/or specifically in Gowanus are most welcome.

There are no fees for vending at this event, just a suggested 20% donation towards the space(s), collected by G&S. For vendor placement, please contact vend [at] geminiandscorpio [com]. The fine art curation and sales go through the gallery: jsgalleryinfo [at] gmail. We're suggesting a $300 upper limit to artworks to keep them affordable, with the gallery taking a 50% cut. Both wall and 3D art is welcome at the gallery, and an Earth Day connection would be great too.

We're also looking for any fun extras to add: snacks, giveaways, services, experiences, etc (do you do nails? massage? "green" workshops? etc)

Calling all faux millionaires to litter their gold coin at our illicit gambling establishment far offshore on the banks of Gowanus. The casino club will feature blackjack, roulette and the star attraction of the night: Texas hold'em tournament, played at 10pm, 11pm, and 12am for a $50 value prize. For non-tourney games, a member credit system will let you use your winnings for future party entry, drinks, etc.

The original Castaways resort in Vegas was peak-60s polynesian insanity. We'll honor our namesake with some tropical drinks & beats.

Dress suggestions: funky party-wear, 1960s Polynesian kitsch, faux fancy, vintage lounge, sparkly cocktail, or other non-sloppy attire appreciated. No elaborate costumes or formalwear required, but you know we love it when you put in effort.

We'll turn the heat way up for some sweaty dancing joy. Wear layers!

Lastly: we still have a few of those ridiculous tiki to-go tumblers from the last Castaways. Take your tropical drinks to go in one of those bad boys for only $10.
