About

My mom was an Avon Lady in the 1970s to supplement our family's income at the same time that she was raising five kids. I am not sure how she was able to do as many things as she did then, nor as she currently does to this day.

As such, many of the perfume bottles and decanters are still filled or partially filled with some sort of perfume or cologne.

My sister, Toni, owner of the BucktoothedBunny, has taken all of the photos of our mom's Avon for this Etsy site.

You can visit Toni's shop at:

I have two shops on Etsy as well:
