AVON Calling? Oh How I Wish!


My mom called me last night to discuss her findings of an AVON catalog at her mailbox. She told me all about some new products, including pretty nail polish colors and so forth. Of course she was telling me about some items in particular she thought I would like, but the whole time we discussed it, I got to confess I felt a just a little jealous. Where’s my AVON Lady (or gentlemen for that matter) calling or dropping off a catalog for me to drool over? I like certain AVON products a lot. I want an AVON representative to show up at my door or even just drop something off at my mailbox. So I may gander through it and drool over all the lovely merchandise. Set money aside and make a purchase!

Where oh where are the representatives these days? Why is it that in the roughly three years now that I’ve lived where I do, I haven’t had one come by? I mean seriously, what does a girl have to do to find herself a representative?

Now it has been suggested to me, on more than one occasion that I just sign up to sell it myself. My problem with that scenario is I’m just not sure I have the patience to go into that kind of a sales job. Plus I’m not totally sure I’m ready to give up other favorable brands of cosmetics. Although…I confess, I have actually considered it from time to time, I’ve just never settled on actually doing it. I always find a reason for me not to. Why it just won’t work out for me to go for it. So I really think I just need a good rep for the company that I can make my purchases through. Is that too much to ask for these days? Because there are certain beauty products that I just adore and as mentioned before, work better for me than other brands seem to. So I ask again, where or where are the AVON representatives?

--XOXO, Jane

    1. I would love a rep! I don’t discriminate on where you’re from. ;) I’m following you back on twitter now and found your link through your twitter page. I have it open in another tab to register to your site and begin my shopping around! Thank you!

  2. Avon still has to-your-home Reps? Wow. I had no idea.

    I am so not a sales lady. Ut uh. Nope. No way. It would go something like this:

    "Hello, I'm selling this mind-blowing, world shattering object, would you like to buy,"

    "No."

    "Ok." Said sheepishly, return to my car, bawl my eyes out.

    1. Well mom got something on her mailbox, so yes, yes there are! LOL! I just don’t think they are as popular around our area as they used to be.

      If it makes you feel better, despite my experiences of dealing with all sorts of people during my Denny’s days, I probably would end up in the same scenario if I ever opt to do sales like that. LOL!

  3. Oh girls put your big girl panties on! You don't cry until ten people say no in a row lol. But seriously Avon sales are not like that. And I can hear both of you saying "No mom not for you!" lol. There are some products out there that all you have to do is say I sell such and such and people go "Oh I want a catalog do you have one?" And Avon is just one of them. I do however think it is hysterical that I have an Avon rep out here in little ole Hastings, and you girls in the big city can't find one! My only comment on that is "Na na na na na I have an Avon Catalog shiny and new!" Lol Love Mom :)

    1. Well you do have a natural knack for sales and marketing! So you’re probably right in what we would say to you. LOL! Quite frankly I think it’s pretty funny too, that we live in the second largest city in this state and yet you get one before we do! LOL!

      I’m so glad you left such a mature comment over your catalog! LMAO! ;) Love you mommy!
