Vintage Avon for VTT
Welcome to Vintage Thingies Thursday, where our hostess is Suzanne at Coloradolady. Please pop over there when you're done looking at my things!
I think alot of us grew up with Avon products. It was always so exciting to get the new book to pour over, and I remember being over the moon when our Avon lady included lots of samples with our orders! I've been collecting Avon things for many years, but just things that I remember from my childhood. Mr. Old Glory won that ladybug perfume on Ebay for me. To this day I wonder where mine went, because I was not the type of girl to throw my treasures away!
A perfume kitty pin, and an old roll-on.
A honeysuckle scented demi stick, and a chocolate pomade that still smells chocolatey!
Some of those lipstick samples I was talking about. Didn't you love getting these with your order?
Two "Her Prettiness" rollettes, both honeysuckle scented. Honeysuckle was always a favorite for me, and it still is to this day!
My Grandma gave me this American Belle, full of Sonnet perfume, ages ago. It's one of my most prized possessions.
I remember my Mom having these bottles. She packed hers up a long time ago, so I got these at garage sales. Isn't that little purse cute?
And I'm pretty sure we've ALL had these bottles at one time, haven't we? I'm still on the lookout for some "Her Prettiness" talc, and then my Avon collection might be complete!
