The other day when we were in Austin on South Congress, we parked in a different spot than we normally do and from a distance my eye caught a very interesting shop. I could see these mannequins displayed in a window and since I'm always drawn to mannequins, I just had to check it out. I had never even heard of Blackmail, even though I' sure I've passed it many times. I just stood there outside entranced, intrigued and just loving their display windows. Remember I said in a previous post for me it's always the display windows that draw me into a shop. Even though this wasn't really an antique shop and more of a boutique, I still couldn't resist going in the front door.
This is the outside view of the windows. The antlers and cow heads were off the wall. Unfortunately, none of their mannequin or baby heads are for sale. The clerk said the owner has a passion for these.
Now that's a glass container load of doll heads. I know some of you will think this is just weird, but they are all the rage.
A small airplane hangs from the ceiling as do cool signs.
Old movie posters and the metal cabinet was really great. Display only I think is what it had on it.
More doll heads in a worn leather chair.
