Mannequin Heads, or Creepy Faces....

Sometimes, the paraphernalia used for display in a thrift shop is just as interesting as the thrift stuff itself. Or is that just me??

Case in point....



I know, pretty freaky, huh? Yikes!!

For Blue Monday, notice the beads on that mannequin with the sinister laugh. I think she's being pretty smug about wearing the beads when her friend just has a naked neck. 

Also, look closely, there's a blue chair, blue shirt and jeans on the lady outside, and a blue bowl way over there on the right.



Thought you could use another look....
totally freaky.





The owner recovered this chair and in my opinion, made it most super cool! She said it was just to sit in because she didn't know if people would like it to buy. I told her she should just put a price tag on it and see.... someone would see the total coolness factor in it! I can imagine it in a play room for the kids, or in a rec room for the teens.



Noli liked it!

Oh, and note the blue on the chair, the blue Lava Lamp and ashtray on the table to the right, and the blue telephone! When's the last time you used one of those to make a call?!!

Yeah, these are kinda freaky! I really hate those old school life-size dolls where their eyes open and shut! I've always been freaked out by those!
Love the chair. And we used to have a phone just like that :)

Hi Sarah Beth,

Yep, blue is found everywhere. Thanks for taking me with you on your trip. Thanks for playing today.

Happy Blue Monday!

You did great with your many blues. Enjoyed seeing all of them especially the mannequins.

Those are freaky! And I might have seen those in a couple of Etsy jewelry listings...
Is that a velvet chair? Cool! Yes, you're right, it would fit right into a kid's room :)

I think those are Benefit brand heads. It's a makeup brand and I feel like I've seen those heads/ones very similar in their section at the store. As for the landline phone - other than making a call from a hotel room, I really can't remember when I uaed one last. Possibly at my parent's house at some point, but last I remember was my freshman college dorm room phone!

Definitely creepy mannequin heads! The funny thing is that I've been taking photos here and there to write a post about mannequins, just like you. Must be in the Kool-Aid . . .

Hi Sarah Beth! Always a pleasure to see you here. That chair is quite a conversation piece! It is bright and colorful. Those mannequin heads are hilariously funny! Great choices today. I hope you come visit me soon as well. Enjoy your weekend.

I like your Maniquins, Sarah, the did really good for "M" Day. (The fair is nice too, I am not sure where I would put it. The owner should put a fairy high price on it and see if it sell. Good idea you have.)

The mannequins are kind of creepy, but in a fun kind of way!

I would buy that chair in a heart beat! Love the rainbow recovering. I must admit, I like the creepy mannequin heads too. ;)

I don't think I've ever seen a blue telephone like that one before.
OK. Those faces are kinda creepy, but creepy-cool.
Noli is getting so big!

Interesting post

Su-sieee! Mac said...

The mannequins are quite freaky. I wonder what kind of place they used to call home.
