For more than 80 years, Avon has been selling health and beauty products, personal care, jewelry, perfumes, clothing, and many other items. Sometimes they package their products in beautiful decanters and other glassware that have become a favorite of collectors. In the mid 1960s, Avon began producing novelty containers for perfumes. Collectors loved the new products, and Avon began creating more collectibles to draw in their customers. Although most of the collectibles have lost value today, there are still many collectors and many others who value the nostalgia these pieces have and the beauty they bring to their homes. We read recently that Avon will be doing away with their collectibles, or at the very least reducing the number of collectibles that will be entering the market. I can only guess, that for Avon, this is a strategy to increase demand in the future for a more limited supply of collectibles.
