I brought back from up north these three Avon bottles. When I was a kid in my teens, my mom would buy them as gifts for me. The company promoted them as collectible items and my mom bought into that pretty much. I have tossed three of them already and I think I will say goodbye to the cars. I like the stagecoach. If I keep one for memories, that seems reasonable.
I also had a duck head on a glass duck bottle shape and a clock. The pump shaped bottle had a shoe spoon for the handle of the pump. The capital of the U.S. had a plastic dome that covered the lid of the capital building in glass.
I did look them up on eBay and found most of them selling for 5 bucks apiece. I think that it is about the same price that was the original price. My parents' friend bought them for her husband and kept all of them in their boxes unopened. I suppose some people will pay a lot of that packaged item. Like I said, the stage coach will look good on one of my junk shelves and the rest of them will not.
I hope everyone's weather has improved some and that spring is good for each of you. Our spring is slow compared to some of my blogger friends. Compared to others in the northlands we look like the deep south in development. I hope all are fine and thanks for stopping by today.
