It's been a while since I've posted one of these (in fact, almost a year). I'm a sucker for old magazines and catalogs, even if they're Avon. I never understood Avon beyond a specialty makeup company. The themed cologne jars, the soap on a rope, the strange children's bath toys... Just weird. But enjoy nonetheless. From 1974 (also known as Campaign 23), Christmas is in the air and joy is everywhere.
A year to go, but Avon was darn well going to supply you with your Bicentennial needs.
"A Christmas gift you make yourself says, 'I think you're very special'." That's funny, I always thought it said, "I'm really cheap."
I remember the craze with the plaid stuffed animals. These were essentially just pillows with felt eyes, mouths and stitched-on feet that didn't feel anything like something you'd want to snuggle up with as a child.
With that blown-back hair, those heavily rouged cheeks and a look of surprise and shock, it looks more like her face is being lit up by a mushroom cloud.
"Velvety Moss, Velvety Turquoise, Frosty Mauve and Frosty Sky Blue". Four colors and only 2 adjectives? C'mon Avon copy writers. You're not trying.
I remember my sister having brushes like these. What purpose does that knob in the middle serve? I remember the "rattail" end of brushes. Served as a weapon in a pinch. I wonder how many kids' eyes were put out with those.
I would think pine is more the fragrance of Christmas. I like how they warn you this won't be priced lower before Christmas. So you hold-outs, just forget it.
Good Grief! With that pallid skin and disoriented look, there can be only one answer: Charlie Brown is a zombie!
There was a time in the 1970's when everything you bought could be used as a bank when its contents were depleted.
As far as I'm concerned, Wee Willy Winter can keep his solid fragrance glacé.
