What is flair?

“Flair” is the fun and expressive details you add to your style (and your home). That DIY button on your bag? Flair. That cute pin attached to your coat lapel? That's some fancy flair. Your favorite patch sewn onto your vintage denim jacket? Definitely flair. These little embellishments are an easy and customizable way to express oneself.

Flair Fair specializes in featuring pins, patches, and buttons—but also items ranging from keychains to zines. These inexpensive items make unique gifts for friends, loved ones, and yourself while also supporting independent artists + designers.

Strange Beginnings


Strange Beginnings


Flair Fair is organized by the powers that be at Strange Ways, a local New Haven retail store and online shop that curates unique and unusual items focusing on smaller statement pieces—like pins and patches. Working with independent designers and artists allows for new and fresh product, and is part of the focus at the shop.

The idea for a vendor fair came about organically from inviting creatives to the Strange Ways storefront for pop-up shops, live chalk murals, and after hours events. The yearning for something larger to help establish and celebrate this sense of community in New Haven and beyond laid the seed for a larger event.

Style magazines and blogs like GQ, StyleCaster, Refinery29, and Seventeen Magazine have featured Strange Ways and the items the shop carries. It's been exciting to bring more of these of unique products to the public at Flair Fair!
