I can get one locally, just like my Formal Felix (size 42ish) which has a stainless metal cap, for $40, or a similar one (size 38ish) with a wheeled stand for $50. Not sure what the shipping would be to you though. Depending on your location in New England, the shipping should be about $25-$30.

 

Felix does have a jersey knit cover, but not enough cushion to really be pinnable, I am planning on adding some quilting to his midsection to fix that.  

 

Felix on the right....

These look Great! 

 

Found some good looking ones from Mannequin Maven between ebay and amazon (prime free shipping on some is a big bonus; all less than $70).  What are thoughts on styling?  I personally like the some of the more interesting patterns, but perhaps mass appeal will dictate white or black.

I love the patterned mannequins bu I think the safest bet is to go with something simpler. You don't want you mannequin to clash with or distract buyers from your product.

Classic white is probably your best bet, but a mid-grey might not be bad, either.

It would be really funny if it was just crates filled with 'Akeela and the Bee' DVDs or something and wes was super pumped about it.

If you have three lights, blast two on the wall, one light on the mannequin. If the wall lights are1.5 to2 stops brighter than the light on the mannequin, you will get a white background. If you only have one light, find a white wall and work off that. It won't be perfect white unless your light is powerful, but better than having a gradient. Go to staples and buy for foam core white boards, tape two together and you just got a pair of reflectors that can stand on its own.

This way if you find the bottom of the piece is too dark, just use the foam board to bounce light for fill

I hope to god you aren't serious... And if you are, somebody needs to plant a GPS tracker on that thing so we know to clean out our thrifts before you roll through pillaging our turfs! smile.gif

Wes is going all Walter White on us.

He's going to run an illegal thrifting and flipping operation out of a box truck so that nobody can track him.

His eBay location will have to be changed to something super-mysterious.

Well, y'all might be disappointed a bit by this....but

All it is, is a skid shipping boxes for my shoes. Uline had a big sale going on for a while and since this was my first week at home, I was able to take advantage of it at the very end (had to be home to sign for a freight delivery). 

 

With the sale I saved $350 by purchasing at 60% compared to my normal carton purchasing method.....

 

Also on the truck was another z-rack, 200 hangers and a hanger storage rack.

 

 

 

PLUS, I got a free t-shirt for the wife. Which turned out to be a great idea, because the skid of boxes is now in the garage......in her parking spot.

We were on the subject of bidder requirements yesterday. Here's how I have my buyer requirements set on Ebay.

 

Quote:
Block buyers who:
  • Have received 2 unpaid item strike(s) within 1 month(s)
  • Have a primary shipping address in countries that I don't ship to
  • Have 4 policy violation report(s) within 1 month(s)
