Cornershop Gallery #8: Mannequin

Now this is a real shopkeeper’s shop. Selling shop fittings, and racks, and price guns, and shelving, and nasty day-glow posters. Whilst the rest of the world dreams of mobile phone shops, or shoe shops, or boutiques, shopkeepers dream of secret grottos like this. Well they do not – let’s be quite clear about this – actually dream of naked mannequins, even ‘really cheap’ ones. But the idea of finding the perfect unit for displaying this or that, or a high tech way of down-marking prices, or a super-compact counter-top dispenser… these little nuggets of excitement get us through the day.
