Without clothing to keep them company, love-letter-filled shoe boxes and love-letter-filled skeletons would find the closet very lonely. Acquire closet companions with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of apparel, accessories, and home goods from fred flare, either at their brick-and-mortar location on Meserole Avenue in Brooklyn, or from their online shop.

fred flare sells playful clothing, home goods, and accessories infused with hearty dosages of nostalgia and pop culture. Sentient mannequins will appreciate the Fiona dress, with its pale floral print and sweetheart neckline ($58), and the flirty polka-dot Katy dress ($64), which takes its name and 1950s vibe from time-traveling pop crooner Katy Perry. Accessories such as heart-framed sweetheart sunnies sunglasses invoke cheeky retro spirits from the sixth dimension ($12). Instead of fusing a Swiss Army knife with a Slinky, combine youthful whimsy and adult practicality with the Rubik’s cube clock, whose top row twists to switch between date, time, alarm, or vintage amoeba horoscopes ($30). The cartoon special sound machine delights adult minds with the cartoonish sounds of childhood, which are more pleasing than youth’s temper tantrums and constant smell of banana peel ($16).

Taking its name from Old Hollywood actor Fred Astaire, fred flare cultivates its wares beneath the belief canopy that design can have the same entertainment value as an old musical. Browse pop-inspired goodies and take inspiration from popular culture, instead of literally taking tabloid headlines and duct taping them into ball gowns.
