Softer prices in Silverton during Hard times.

Don Sellway  has been a barber for forty years.  For 16 of them he’s had a barber shop in the rural community of Silverton, Oregon at 201 Oak Street.
cheapbarber“If I believe the customer is on rough times,”said Sellway, “on fixed income or out of work, the price is 7 dollars. It’s as simple as that. That’s not true for everybody, you gotta remember the average home in Silverton goes for $400,000, so if you pull up in a fancy car our standard rate applies.”

Street parking in Silverton is still also a terrific value. One penny still gives you twelve minutes in a downtown Silverton parking meter.silvertonparkingmeter
