I didn’t realize that there are “seasons” for mannequins. Many stores change the mannequins out in different seasons, perhaps to update a hairstyle, or makeup. So while some mannequins are thrown out because they are damaged in some ways, others are discarded just because stores want to make their mannequins fresh. In Los Angeles, there is a store called Mannequin Madness. They take old mannequins and give them new life by cleaning them up, and then renting or selling them. What a great idea! I wondered if there is a similar way to repurpose mannequins here in Chicago? Probably the best one that I have come up with so far is from Midwest Sound Control and Display, in Carol Stream, a suburb of Chicago. So, if you are in the market for a used mannequin, or just want to check it out, visit their website for a look!
