Bought alot of my wrasses from my old LFS, but he closed up. Its a real shame, had a lot of rare stuff with great prices. Now I have to turn to online vendors for my rare stuff, since the LFS by me don't carry rare fish and just not real good LFS stores. If they do get a rare fish in, they charge some ridiculous prices for them.
The only pairs I have are the lineatus pair, and hooded wrasse pair. They all get along great but when dinner comes they get a little aggressive. The male exquisite wrasse is a pain in the you know what. He likes to flare up next to my mystery wrasse. Other than that everyone gets along okay. Half of my fish are from online vendors.
Also take a look at reeftanksupply.com and marineaquatics.net
They carry some fairy wrasses sometimes.

My best luck has come from the LFS. I asked the owner when he gets his weekly price list. Then when I an ready for a new fish or pair I go in and have him check his list. Sometimes he will even call them to see if there is anything that isn't on the list.
How rare are we talking?
LA is going to have three Cirrhilabrus marjorie available in the coming weeks. http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1108139
These are supposedly the rarest Fairy's currently available. They are going to be well over a $1000/pr but they are about as rare as it gets.
If you are looking for other fairies like Lineatus, Rhomboids, etc. then Phishybusiness, Atlantis Aqurium (they currently have both), Reeftanksupply.com are all good sources.
