A novel by infamous literary hot stuff Edna O’Brien sits in an arrangement with a book by an anonymous streetwalker and a replica of a Patti Smith tabloid article.
For the person who has everything, may we suggest gifting a sexploitation book like the hardcover first edition of Ivy League Stripper by Heidi Mattson.
Mandelbaum is unwilling to part with The Matt Dillon Scrapbook for less than a cool C-note--a bargain compared to its eBay list price of $479.
Usually we?re in such a hurry to get in and out of our hair salon, it?s an exercise in stress. But we?ve just discovered Cabin 207, a combination cuttery and rare-book shop that?s so entertaining, we hung around long past our session in the chair.
Cabin 207 is the epitome of the whole being more than the sum of its parts, a place where you can get a haircut and also browse a collection of surprisingly affordable (most under $100), quirky first-edition books displayed face out on shelves lining the walls.
Owner Kristen Shaw used to cut hair out of a room in New York?s Chelsea Hotel. She moved west for editorial and red-carpet work and set up shop with her pal Joseph Mandelbaum, a rare-book dealer.
Shaw and her three-stylist team chop locks (they?re masters of the short cut) and color-block strands in the sun-drenched front portion of the space (Cuts for men begin at $85; women, $120). In the back, you?ll find Mandelbaum unloading his recent shipment of fine art catalogs to go with his roundups of addiction memoirs, works by literary scions and lesser-known celebrity publications.
Stop by for a free hair consult or just to browse the books--take it from us, Suzanne Somers?s poetry from the 1980s Touch Me alone warrants a visit.
