Description

I wonder how many of these 1950s era STANLEY HOME PRODUCTS Hostess Party Gifts are still around? I recently found this a local thrift store. Didn't know for sure what it was, but found it very vintage retro looking and decided to bring it home and do a little research. Nesting Cups green plastic in good useable condition and collectible. The outside cup does have some rub marks, which looks like it may have been rolling around in the back of a kitchen drawer, seen in last photo. Size: 3 1/4" tall, 2 3/4" top diameter, 1 7/8" bottom diameter. Includes 4 little cups with a cap that is still tight fitting, keeps everything together. Perfect for travel or picnics. Super retro! Please message me with any questions or comments and thank you fro visiting our Etsy shop. Have a nice day!



Information about SHP below found at: https://blog.retroplanet.com/stanley-home-products/

SHP was founded in in Westfield, Massachusetts in 1931 by Frank Stanley Beveridge (vice president of sales for The Fuller Brush Company) and his associate, Catherine L. O’Brien. The goal was to influence people facing economic hardship due to the Great Depression to start their own business. People would put up a small investment and would then sell products people use every day. Initially a door-to-door selling company, SHP offered household cleaners and cleaning tools.

In the late ’30s an SHP dealer started giving product demonstrations to clubs in order to boost sales volume. Fellow dealers were excited about this unique method and took it a step further by creating what is called the “party plan”. Homemakers would invite their friends for demonstrations. The hostess would provide light refreshments and would receive a gift for hosting the party. The party plan quickly became popular and is the primary method the company uses today.

Today, SHP sells mostly fragrances, home cleaning solutions and vitamins. Many lines from decades ago were discontinued
