Mannequin Madness in Oakland, CA

Posted in Mannequins, Retail News by Arcadia on February 24, 2011

A while ago I was contacted by a retailer who sells and rents used mannequins.  Well, I’m just getting around to checking out their website and must say WOW!  There is a plethora of information on there all about mannequins.

Judi Townsend is the proprietor of Mannequin Madness in Oakland, CA. It is a 1300 square foot warehouse of all types of mannequins and dress forms.  Take a look at some of the merchandise they have to offer, especially if you are just opening a store, because new mannequins can be incredibly expensive.  Students this is a great way to purchase mannequins or dress forms for class projects, or to build up your own inventory for your freelance business.

My favorite part is she is also “green” business owner.  She recycles mannequins from retailers for FREE when they close or remodel their store.  What a service!

I’m glad Judi contacted me, I love finding valuable resources nearby.  If you do happen to purchase something, tell them you are a CCSF student in my class and she will offer you a 15% discount.
