Avon Test Bottles

We will have some Avon test bottles for sale shortly and more later. These are the (usually) clear glass bottles that Avon got from the manufacturers and then asked for changes before choosing glass colors etc for the final bottle that was filled and sold to the public. In the early Hastin Collector books, he included these items but later eliminated them because collectors might be shown stolen bottles that were for sale and prices were usually quite high.
We don't sell stolen merchandise on this website. Many of them come from a Member of this website's sister who was in inventory control/quality control at Avon for many years. They were given to her by her managers. So she did not steal them. It's hard to say if the managers had the right or not to give them away. Avon in Pasadena would not have been interested in the test bottles once the item was approved and went into production. And if the item was never approved they were worthless to the quality dept. If anyone wants

If you currently sell older Avon online, you might be interested...

If you currently sell older Avon online, you might be interested in help with the provenance of your items. We have done this before and are offering the service again. We can provide print information or digital images of older Avon items including what the items sold for when they were first sold by Avon. If you have used the Hastin's Avon Collector's Encyclopedia before, it usually keeps the original selling price as the collectible value unless something drastic has occurred with supplies of the item.
If you are interested in obtaining extra information about your items you can contact staff@icollectavon.net for pricing. Prices will be reasonable for whatever you need. We already make CDs of pictures available when new products are introduced to Avon Reps. Because there are so many visitors to www.Desley.net who aren't buyers and we see our pictures elsewhere, you can check out www.Desley.net to see if there is something you need info on. You only need a word or two to find an item and usually the fewer words you use, the more likely you are to get what you are looking for.

How to purchase amazing things that are shown on this site (Some of which aren't even in the Hastin's book)

If you see something that you want to purchase on the CLASSIFIEDS page, there is a description of the item, the name of the person selling it, the person's email address, the price they are asking for it & where the item is located. Don't delay because it's first come, first served on all classifieds!

For instance if you want to purchase the Avon's History of President's Club Jewelry 1945 to 1987
that Mary Reed listed today (6/15/2017)
you can email her at mgreed@pacbell.net
Her asking price is $12.99 plus mailing cost
She will pack as many things as she can get into a box and then ship it off. You will be paying the cost that she had to pay to ship it. Make sure you tell her if you want USMail, US Priority Mail, US Parcel Post, UPS or Fed Ex, but you will be paying what it costs her.
She is in Ventura, CA and you can guess ahead of time how long it will take to get from there to you. I'm sure you'll be able to track the package while it's on the way.

I just wanted to clarify the way to purchase things from this site because not all of it is with us here in this office.

DISCONTINUED PRODUCTS (click on this line to see the whole post)

Recently a friend was looking for something Avon hadn't sold for a while. I let her know that she could find the product on www.desley.net
After she received the product, she wondered about the expiration date printed on the package. In all fairness, I'm including a lot of links for people to read about expiration dates. The dates solely indicate freshness, and are used by manufacturers to convey when the product is at its peak.

How long cosmetics are fresh?
Shelf life of cosmetics depends on period after opening and production date.

period after openingPeriod after opening (PAO). Some cosmetics should be used within a specified period of time after opening due to oxidation and microbiological factors. Their packaging has a drawing of an open jar, inside it there is a number representing the number of months. In this example it is 6 months of use after opening.

SOMETHING FROM THE 80's

We recently had a request for the powderstick or powderscent items from 1984 and 1989. There were 2 of them listed on www.desley.net and a few others here and there online. When we went to the warehouse to check what they had to ship, it turned out that there were NINE different fragrances available, not just the two that had been advertised. They have updated the listings, including pictures and you will be surprised to compare this with ANYTHING ELSE ONLINE! I checked myself and no other site has more than three of these.

Desley.net has these fragranced powdersticks available RIGHT NOW for you to buy:

Amber Mist
Willow
Tea Garden
Occur
Moonwind
Charisma
Sweet Honesty
Odyssey
Pearls & Lace
