The Storefront — New Haven, CT

Strange Ways built its foundation as an online shop, becoming one of the top web destinations for patches, pins, unique gifts, and more from independent designers, artists, and small brands. We ship out hundreds of items to people all over the world every week who appreciate our strange product offering. Curating and creating these items is the passion of the job—the next best part is seeing customers excited by what we carry! We wanted to continue to build that connection and atmosphere.

The popularity of our online shop lead us to open a Strange Ways storefront. By opening up our headquarters to the public, fans really immerse yourself in our strange world. With the space we can present product in ways that allow people a richer experience, and customers love being able to see all their favorite items from online in-person. We're also able to offer fun store-specific offerings like vintage pins and patches, a 60-game arcade system, retro candy, in-store events, and what may be the very first “Flair Case”!

The only Strange Ways store, we carry ALL the items available online—plus unique ones found only in-store!

We're located in the quaint Westville Village area of New Haven, CT—known for it's famous brunch spots like Bella's Cafe and Lena's, art galleries at Kehler Liddell and DaSilva Gallery, music spots like Elm City Sounds records and Lyric Hall Theaterfarmer's market at Edgewood Park on Sundays, and proximity to the newly-revamped Edgewood Skate Park. Strange Ways is just 2 miles from the center of downtown New Haven near Yale University (and it's free art galleries), the famous “New Haven apizza-style” pizza, and great bars for those looking to make a day of it. We're always surprised by how far people mention they come to visit us, and we hope to see you soon too!
