Goodies


"Hi Jennifer.  This is P____ in the leasing office.  I'm calling to let you know there was a delivery for you yesterday.  You can pick it up any time before 6.  Also, I noticed you put out some flyers.  Would you mind collecting any that are still out.  We don't want to advertise which are the vacant apartments.  We don't usually allow soliciting."  Damn.  I guess I can't put out any more flyers here.  

But yay, my first Avon order has arrived!  I got a slow start because of my asthma, so I just picked a bunch of stuff that was on sale.  I have to take advantage of the 40% off I get for my first four campaigns.  I got everything in the box for around 60 dollars:  4 full size shower gels, 2 full size shampoos, 2 full size conditioners, 2 full size Skin So Soft hand creams, 10 mini bath and body items, 6 lip glosses, 4 lipsticks, 4 cream-to-powder eyeshadows, 1 mascara, 2 nail polishes, 4 lip balms...click to enlarge if you want to see it all.  Yes, I put little removable stickers so I can remember how much to charge.  I can resell for 100 dollars or my daughter and I can use it ourselves.  I'll probably carry it around for awhile and see if anyone is interested.  Every item is 5 dollars or less, so I think I've got a decent chance at unloading most of it.  I only ordered shades I can wear, just in case...

Smart, ordering shades you like.

That was my policy building houses, I never built one I would not live in, because I just might have to.

Keep going!!!

Good luck with selling it!

I buy stuff to sell on Ebay, and always try to purchase things that either my kids or other family members will like if it doesn't sell.

I can't imaging me wearing any of that if it's not in my "shade"...

Avon is STILL around? Cool!

I remember as a kid, my mother ordered from Avon, but the Representative was always homely looking and in need of makeup. Just didnt' make sense.

Too bad about the flyers although I guess I get their point of view. Kinda like a pile of newspapers saying nobodies home.

I LOVE Stick Tint. When my sister did Avon two years ago I bought 6 tubes of it! LOL! That and Foot Works too!
