Visit 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 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 has lead to us opening a Strange Ways storefront. With the space we can present product in ways that allow customers a richer experience. People just love even being able to see all their favorite items from online in-person. We're also able to offer a few, fun store-specific offerings like vintage pinsa 60-game arcade system, retro candyevents, and what may be the very first “Flair Case”!

The only Strange Ways storefront, we carry all the items found 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 DaSilva Gallery and Kehler Liddell, farmer's market at Edgewood Park on Sundays, proximity to Edgewood Skate Park, and more. Strange Ways is just 2 miles from the center of downtown New Haven near Yale University and it's free art galleries, famous “New Haven apizza-style” pizza, and great bars for those looking to make a day of it.
