desperately seeking spawn

Well not quite spawn... but a body of sorts...


I want a dress form as a piece in my new {well next month} apartment-- or I should say that I have ALWAYS wanted one..


Here are some of my recent options:


These are via Craig's list
 
#1- here ($50 & local to my house)
#2- here ($200 & in China Town/Little Italy- 1 & 1/2 hrs from home)
#3- here ($195 or best offer & located in Brookyln- 1 & 1/2 hrs from home)


From other stores:
 

#1- here from PBteen ($199 + shipping?)
#2- here from Urban Outfitters ($300 + shipping)

 look at these beauties:

These are from a company called Corset Laced Mannequins and they run around $300 + shipping, are handmade & simply GORGEOUS

Worth saving for one of those?
I kinda want a vintage one though...


Please help meeeeeeee!!

I love them ... #1 from your 2nd option is my favorite, but my favorite, favorite, FAVORITE are the ones from 'Corset Laced Mannequins' although a bit expensive.

Oh, tough choice! My mom has a vintage one dates back to mid 1800's. It's gorgeous. Hard to say...because those printed ones are super cute!!!! Depends on where you are going to put it..with what decor..etc...
