130 Years of Avon
Founded in 1886 as the California Perfume Company, Avon is celebrating 130 years of beauty and empowering women this year. Like many women I have many memories of the Avon products my grandmother and mother had when I was a child, especially the fragrances and jewelry. I actually got started as a representative because I missed the lip balms and bubble bath I had used as a kid and still loved as an adult. nearly 20 years later I can’t imagine not having Avon in my life.
