    I was wondering if anyone still collects vintage Avon bottles? I recently came across an entire box of Avon perfume bottles, most are still in the box and unused so I thought about setting up an auction here but wanted to make sure there was a interest in them first. I will get some pics for the thread in a bit.
    So, if there is interest; Should I auction this as an entire lot or individually?
    Thanks for your input [​IMG]

    My grandmother has the one on the far right. How old is that one because she is 88 yrs old?

    Interesting! I can't answer your specific question, but I have the thread and thimble one on a small shelf in my sewing room with other sewing collectibles. I wonder if you might also list that one in the sewing section.

    Thanks everyone! I am not looking to make a fortune on them. Just something to share with my BYC friends. My neighbor is in her 80's, this is where they came from. I am going to use part of the money to buy some items she needs in the nursing home she's in. The rest I am going to put aside for the next Chickenstock we have. I looked up some of the values online and they are roughly $150.00+ EBAY value. Most are in great shape and quite a few are in Mint condition in the original boxes, never used. I think I will start an auction and post the link here and see what happens. [​IMG]
