When I was a tween my friends mum was an Avon lady, that was brilliant we got free little samples and occasionally demonstration parties with manicures, make up, moisturizing and hair doing etc sessions using the children's/teen ranges. This only happened a few times, but I still remember the fun of it. I also remember her mum very wisely banning us from the sofa (all that make up and moisturiser) and her dad's mirrored picture of Elvis in the loo.
I bought my first ever (bright blue) eye shadow with my pocket money at one of those parties.
I still buy Avon stuff, mostly bubbles, shampoos and soaps now, great value and a lovely chat with the local rep when it's delivered, but bless her she is nearly 70, so not really the trendy glamour queen my friends mum was....in her fluffy, high heeled, mule slippers!
I have no idea if Avon still do parties, worth a look?
