    I have a plush teddy bear with a red waistcoat.
    He requires a Battery, and he snores, his chest goes up and down, when laid flat, he also giggles.
    I can’t find a mention of him anywhere, yet I’m pretty sure I bought him from an Avon catalogue many years ago.

    Any info from anyone ?

  2. Christy says:

    I have the entire collection of Ladies busts that are in mint condition. I’m not able to find them anywhere online to see what they might be worth. They’re still in the original display case. If anyone has any ideas could you point me in the right direction ?

    My Avon collection began in the late 70’s. My grandma sold Avon and collected all the bottles which she displaced on bookshelves. As a child I loved to play with them and smell the fragrances. When she passed, I inherited a portion of the bottles. I started looking, at garage sales, for the pieces I was missing. When I married my husband I “inherited” his mom’s collection as well, as she too had been an Avon rep. Cool. Now I am looking forward to new items from Avon. (Recently bought new 2017 product – Cowboy boot (WildCountry) through Avon!)

  15. Tae'lur D. Jones says:

    I have a small ceramic Duck by Avon from 1978 made in Brazil Hand painted Weiss is on a small gold tag on bottom with a number of 511671 painted on the duck opens like a candy dish never used. Inside is a label in gold stating this is a ceramic organizer is for decorative use only it is not intended for serving food. What is the value if any of such an item. My Mother-in-law gave it to me in 1970 I know it must be at least 50 years old. Do you have any ideas??

  16. Tawnya says:

    I have found at a flea market a old Victorian pendant. It has a woman in a Victorian dress holding and umbrella and I believe the stone in it is November birthstone. It is a gold circle pendant with the woman attached on the circle. on the back it is stamped AVON 0-10k-6F. it is in a small blue metal avon box. if anyone has information on this please let me know.

    • Gail says:

      Tawnya, I know I do not have anything like that in my collection, can’t tell you what it is worth, but going by current jewelry prices from Avon, I would double the price for an approx. value of the older pieces. Example, a current pendent sells for about $20, so one from say….70’s I would attempt to sell for $40. A true collector of Avon would pay that. It sounds beautiful…..

  17. Frank says:

      Hello everyone. I am looking for an old Avon necklace that is a lighthouse goldtone that lights up at the top. I have longed for this because someone stole mine. I loved this piece because whenever I was feeling down I could light the necklace and find peace and serenity. It has been many many years of missing it.

      • Gail says:

        Sorry to hear that someone stole your lighthouse, if I come across one I will send you a message. In the meantime, let the Lord be your light when you are down…He can not be taken from you. God bless in your search to replace your necklace…

  19. Sandra says:

    My grandma passed away many years ago. She sold Avon for I know must of been at least 36 or better years. And out of all those years she won SO MANY ITEMS from taking top sales rep here in Hot Springs, Ark. I would go to quite a few of the meetings with her.
    I use to get so excited when the leader of the reps whom was there to give awards out and introduce the new items that were fixings to come out, and which ones she wanted everyone to really get their custermers to notice.
    The reason why I’d always get excited was because the item or items that were to be noticed, I got to be The model that she would always put the jewelry on so tha I could walk to every one of the sales reps so that they may get a good look at each item. Then I’d get to keep them.
    After about the fourth meeting, I started giving a piece to each rep, one name by a list till end. Then the items would be mine again. I felt it was only right since my grandma was taking top sales each meeting and would win the awards.
    I’d like to know what if anyone has an list of the awards and the values? I may be interested in selling a few.
    Thanks.

  21. P. A. Potts says:

    I have a vase that I purchased from an Avon rep in the early 1970’s. It was to be a one-time offering never to be repeated. The vase is a very dark red with gold design painted on and I was told that the vase firing required a lot of gold, since the glass was red. I have never seen another vase like this and am unable to locate one on any website. It was in the Avon catalog. Please tell me if you know of this vase or name a sight where I can locate it.

  22. Mrs . Ray says:

    It is very surprising that you have a and special section for avom collector. Since 1968, I have been using Avon and once I was a representative myself until I had to leave country for 10 years or so..and i did not get avon where we used to be. I love those animal decanter of cologn like Deer, Giraffe etc. A pistol. I am really missing those dust powder container like Occur, Here is my heart Charsima and matching cream perfume. I still have those empty contaner. If I ever known that Avon will discontinue all those lovely container I would have bought more.Topaze, Here is my heart contaner were so nice. I WISH AVON SHOULD START DOING ALL THOSE AGAIN WITH CREAM PERFUME. I am an Indian origin lady and still now today I take presents for my relative. sachet of cream perfume are still preserved by many of my relatives.THE LAST BUT NOT LEAST, i HAVE ONE CATALOGUE OF 1971 OR 72 WHICH IS MY TREASURE. If Avon wants to have it back, come with an offer.
    I must say Avon is not same as it was in 70s. Thank you for reading my comment.Mrs Ray

  37. Robert says:

    My late mother in law passed away and among her possessions was a
    metal rectangular item with a picture of a front door with the words “Avon Calling”
    On the back there is a push button that gives out the Avon chime when depressed.
    I am trying to find out anything about this item including collectability and value.
    She was a top sales person for many years and won many awards this may have
    been one of them as I have been unable to find anything like it when researching
    Avon collectables. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you !!!!!

    • Gail says:

      Robert, this item sounds like it may have been a reward for Avon reps. With my family history of Avon, I am quite sure this was not a product sold to the public, therefore, there is no established value… If you are looking to sell, since it is probably one of very few available, establish a price based on what you would be willing to pay if you were an avid collector. As a current Avon rep. and collector, I probably would say as much as $25. If you are interested in selling, I might be interested in buying…send me an e-mail with a picture.
