Been at this for a little over a month. Fair to say this is some form of addiction 😁.

Prefer NOS Avon mint in box unused and full. Managed to pick up some great pieces so far including a few faves that fell in my lap. Vintage Avon is sooo good. Great post feel and my kind of scents. Pretty much everything here is nos full with just a handful empties.

Scents so far
Deep Woods
Tai Winds
Oland
Spicey
Leather
Island lime
Windjammer
Wild Country
Excalibur
Clint

Some real quirky stuff..the Mrs made me buy the Rhino. I love the jeep, 1976 Father's day trio set and the VW.

The hammer...well not so much lol

Never post pics but this deserved some.

My kind of stuff.

Spicy is like vintage shultons old spice etc Oland is a favorite and found it works perfectly with APR Racontuer soap.

Tai winds is a knock off of Hai Karate.. it's the wifes fav along with citrusy Windjammer.

The scents are all good. Each one has its good points. Summer and winter ranges.

Good to here. They look pretty cool. You must have been hammering eBay.
Actually only a few bulk lots off Facebook market place and eBay. Postage is killer if you buy one at a time. More economical to buy in bulk lots if you can.


I picked this one up recently. Not sure what for, it's empty and I don't collect them. I just thought it was cool and on impulse I decided I had to have it.
Thats pretty cool. Came in Spicy or Sure Winner fragrance. The other shaving items are also a brush, barbers pole and tap handle.

I don't know what I'll do with it, for now it's just in the cupboard. I've seen the others and if I got the barber pole it would probably be put on display and in SOTDs.

Nice collection @Chad any Avon Milkglass Shaving Mugs?
Only been lost in this current rabbit hole currently 😁

Particularly like the Spicy, Island Lime and Leather trio
@Chad
Where did you pick those up from?
A Port Maqurie Op Shop on eBay. Nice classic looking set and the boxes are cool too. My kid loves the Island Lime..

I am so impressed and it’s great to find another addict who appreciates the post skin feel and the scents. I don’t limit myself to mint condition - just try to grow the range and smell everything they did pre 1990. You’ve got some great stuff there.

I can recommend Tribute (60s) as one to pick up.

Great! Another Avon fan. The oak moss in Avon which has since been banned a secret to its face feel? Avon scents rock and I'm well stocked for a decade I'd say.

I've added a few since the top pic and yeah I love good condition boxes too.

In came more Excalibur, New World.. (Australia exclusive scent), more spicy and tai winds.

Tribute is hard to find cheap. What Tribute decanter is yours?

If you have spare Leather I'd be happy to trade some other scents for some.
