  1. Gina,

    You are too funny! I use to love avon, but the hubby has allergies. I have really expensive perfume that I rarely wear because of his allergies, so no more ringing of the doorbell from the avon lady for me.
    the snowmen for the bath are cute. I do remember soap on a rope too!

    Have fun at the bazaar.


  2. Tee-Hee...I used to sell Avon when I was young, not for long, that was back in the day when it was still safe to go door to door! I loved the lil' perfume holders you described, such fun!!! I'm glad you found someone nice to spoil:)

  3. I love Avon! In our area its hard to find a Avon Lady that will stick around....seems like they come a couple times and then they vanish. I have a Silver pinkie ring that looks like a spoon shaped into a ring that I have worn for years. I also love all their earrings and have several pairs. I love their body wash....especially anything Vanilla. Did I forget the wonderful candles, Christmas ornaments, and lots of other things that I love Avon. Sounds like you have your leaves just about finished for the fall. You have fun at the bazaar. I noticed today that we will be having several bazaar is our area soon. Love dragging Rich to bazaar's with me. Of course, he did win a doorprize a couple of years ago.

  4. avon does have the best costume jewelry. i just ordered the candy cane watch.

  5. Hey Gina,

    Yep, Avon is an oldie but goodie .. I like their shower gels.. I like the gardenia scent and their glimmerstick eyebrow pencil and the deodorant.

    I sold Avon back in the eighties.. for a while.. didn't make much money from it though.

    The jammies are cute !



  6. My Mom used to buy Avon...she used to put "Silicon Glove" in my stocking every Christmas...loved the kept your hands soft and protected (I don't think they make it anymore)! The pocket book is clever...changing out a pocket book is the pits...for sure I'm always gonna leave something in the one I'm changing from... :)

  7. Gina,
    My mom still gets Avon...and I peek at their catalog everytime I'm over there. I still have some of their jewelry that I purchased back in the 80's and it looks as good as new.
    I'm go happy for you that you have fun someone to spoil!! Isn't it a wonderful feeling!!!
    I checked out a craft show this morning, but it was not any good. Going to one tomorrow afternoon also...guess we'll see what this one it like. Hope you had a great time at the craft bazaar!

  8. Hi Gina,

    My MIL has sold over for at least 40 years! I remember all of those little Avon items you mentioned! Never kept any though!

    I wanted to double check with you to see if you still wanted the Rooster tart burner! It's all boxed up and ready to go!


  9. Hey Gina, I love the bubble bath!!! Ill have to get with you to see how i can order some. Thank you for sharing all of your new goodies
