Where can I get a mannequin...

I'm re-decorating my room, from pink to teal, chocolate brown and creamy white. I want to get a mannequin as well but I'm not sure where I can get it from. If you've bought a mannequin where did you get it?

Hi - I don't know which country you are in! If you live in the UK, they had some in Dunhelm Mill recently, they were white.

There's a beautiful shop in my town... I think it's called past times? they had a beautiful mannequin in the for about £55 which aint bad considering I thought they would be on average £100

What kind did you want. A normal dress makers one or one that looks like a person?

I've found loads of dress makers ones but they are in the UK:

I once went on a hunt for store mannequins and the only places I could find them were thrift stores and flea markets. Go around your town and ask some shops if they have any mannequins they don't want any more. It couldn't hurt.
