Vintage Style Mannequins

Saturday, 4 October 2008

Welcome to my Brand New Blog!


Welcome to my New Blog!

The purpose of these pages is to share my love of all things vintage, and in particular my passion for vintage and antique mannequins.

I just adore vintage manneqins! They are all so different and unique. From the wasp waisted mannequins of the 1800s through to the more realistically shaped mannequins of the 40s and 50s, each one has it's own individual personality.

They are a window to a time gone by and give us glipses into the lifestyles of the women who lived before us.


It will also give me a place to share news and updates relating to http://www.vintagestylemannequins.co.uk/, my website, where I sell hand covered, vintage inspired, female and child mannequins.

Fabulous!
I was wondering if you could turn me in the right direction...I have been searching for a vintage style head that I can put a wig on to display hair accessories. REALLY challenging since I am especially looking for a "retro style face" but with ears to display earrings and no hair or something I can cover.
Totally appreciate any help.
(been looking for the last 4 years off and on and came across your blog so I figured no harm in asking)
