Secret Oktober is an independent women-owned business in Austin, Texas. Secret Oktober was opened for business on Valentine’s Day, 2004, by Cassandra Davis. (Later, Mary Milton became an owner, also.) Secret Oktober serves the goth, punk, and otherwise non-mainstream communities of Austin, and through this website the rest of the world! We are not a big corporation, we are two women (with occasional help from friends) who are trying to make a living by connecting the coolest sources of goth and punk merchandise (many of them local to Austin) with the coolest customers.
