What It Is

Okay, maybe you haven’t. But trust us when we say that when you see the stuff on this website, you’re going to immediately get that “OMGIGOTTAHAVEITRIGHTNOW!” feeling.

But don’t get us wrong. Not only does Fred Flare carry a lot of really cool, off-the-wall stuff, they also carry hip clothing and funky accessories.

Eh, Fred Flare’s prices are fairly reasonable. A t-shirt (like the Barbie tee shown above) sells for $28, whereas something like their ice cream lamp runs for $48. But they do have plenty of items under $15, and their sale section is plentiful.
Shipping is $9.95 for UPS Ground (or currently free when you spend $100 or more.) Shoppers also have the option to pick up their orders in person at their Brooklyn store.
Why We’d Use It
Where else could you find cool brands like Betsey Johnson and Anna Sui, and favorite characters like Hello Kitty, Yoda, Snoopy and even Yo Gabba Gabba’s Brobee all under one roof (unless someone threw a super awesome party made of truckloads of win)? And while they may not be the cheapest (though definitely not the most expensive) online store around, their cool assortment keeps us coming back for more.
Plus, Fred Flare strives to stay green, making environmentally friendly choices such as using recycled materials for office supplies and packing material.
With lots of stylish apparel and kitschy stuff for your office, living room, kitchen and more, you can make your entire life over with uber cool Fred Flare merchandise. We suggest starting your day with the bacon treatment (bacon toothpaste, floss, soap and breakfast.) Mmm…bacon.
