I recently started collecting vintage Avon Jewlery.
I started off purchasing pieces that I had as a child.
Such as this red lucite apple neclace.
A ring with my oldest daughters birthstone.
Then I found my initial.
Then a gold star that I had as a teen. Along with a very dainty coral pearl choker.
And here are a few other pieces that I have found this week on eBay that I’m waiting for.
I use to have this leaf necklace about twenty years ago, so was happy to find it again.
My aunt, who use to sell Avon when I was about six years old, had given me this bracelet as a birthday gift. So I was thrilled to come across it again.
This piece I just thought was pretty. And it happens to have all my kids birthstones on it except one, which I am currently looking for. The month of February. 🙂
This piece reminds me a whole lot of one that my late grandma had. I’m not 100% sure hers was Avon, but the is a good possibility, so I wanted it for my collection. It’s a magnifying glass.
Lastly, for now, is this pretty gold-tone bow. I saw it and thought it was very pretty. My daughter tells me that all these pieces mimic the style, Modcloth, so I guess making old things new and trendy again, is always nice.
Keep in mind, vintage Avon, is very nice, yet also inexpensive. Back in the days when I sold Avon, I’d buy so much of it, and pay $14-$22 a piece. And that was back in the early 90’s! Oh! How I wish I would have kept it all. But I simply moved around too much.
That shared, I’ve been blessed to find all these pieces shown, for only $3-$8 each.
My daughters have been enjoying hearing the stories behind each original piece that I use to have, back in the 70’s and 80’s.
~Does anyone else collect vintage Avon? I would love to hear about any pieces you’ve had, or currently have.
