Le Cabinet de Curiosités de Thomas Erber

Giving a gift, you’ve realized by now, is really a chance to tell a story.

Here’s the story you want to tell this season:

“I found this for you at a traveling bazaar of international curios curated by a mercurial bon vivant who’s worked for Le Monde and Rolling Stone, here in the United States for the first time ever.”

And here’s the store behind the story: Le Cabinet de Curiosités de Thomas Erber, open now for a limited holiday run.

First: everything in Le Cabinet was made specifically for Le Cabinet. One-of-a-kind or limited edition, available nowhere else. So there’s that.

Second: this is prime “what to get the person who has everything” territory – bizarro couture gewgaws no one would think (or know) to buy for themselves.

Art from erotic photography to vintage French movie posters. Luxury gear from Old Glory motorcycle helmets to a chrome bike engraved with sailor tattoos. Accessories from handsome leather luggage to high-end sex jewelry (yes, a thing).

Oh, and a vintage 1959 Mercedes 190SL, if you’re feeling saucy.

Pick that up if you really want a story.
