Mannequin Madness is one stop shop for everything mannequin! We sell mannequins, dress forms, jewelry displays and head forms. We also rent these items for trade show and fashion events. Our Oakland warehouse is where sell used mannequins that we have recycled from department stores when they close or remodel locations. So this is where people can really get a high quality mannequin at a bargain price. We love that we are a green business, recycling mannequins to keep them out of landfills, and finding new homes for them. Our new mannequins are available online as they ship from warehouses on the east coast.

Recently we converted a section of our warehouse into a budget friendly photo studio ($30 an hour) for vendors who need a professional background to take photos of their products for their online store. The photo studio rental includes the use of our mannequins.

Our Oakland warehouse is open Tuesday and Thursday from 10:30-3:30 and Sunday from 10:30-2pm.
