What's new

Vintage Avon find

I was at flea market yesterday and got a new boxed golf club filled with deep woods and a shuton old spice, from the 60s. Got both for $1, the old spice was full, bottle was a little marked up.
Nice ! I never find that stuff at local flea markets . Not that I go to many but I’m in the north east and this stuff either isn’t popular or TOO popular and gets sold on day 1.

I've got to post a pic, but I had a day like that recently. Felt like stealing, especially the Old Spice! No comparison to the stuff made today.
 
Found a Weather Station bottle full of Oland and a Spark Plug with Tai Winds for $15 over the weekend. A bit more than I like to spend, but - with shipping the way it's going - I thought it was worth it. I like Oland, and looking for a couple more spark plug bottles for a project. The store owner through in some stationary the wife had picked out for free, so, all in all I'm happy. Topped off my user bottles and re-arranged the Avon shelf to make it more "user" friendly.

And now I can wear Oland more often because I won't be worrying about running out of it!

This. I sometimes think, "But Island Lime/Bravo etc. is rare and hard to come by! Better save it."

Then I realize I've got three ... of each ...

Slap that stuff on like there's no tomorrow!

Thanks for the permission! I can't possibly outlive my current hoard, yet I peruse the 'Bay and Goodwill all the time. And then ration out the stuff I do have as if I were Tom Hanks on a dessert island.

There's no problem, only an appreciation for one of America's finest shave products!

Blend 7 is amazing (to me). Like Oland, it has what I call an "Ash note," not prominent but there. Hard to describe but I like it!

Give Blend 7 a try, for more on its components, Google that notes forum.

My 4 year old grandson is enamored of the decanters and wants to play with them. I bought him the plastic batmobile bubble bath from Avon, but he still wants those aftershaves!
 
A few weeks back I bought a decanter shaped like a cathedral radio, new in box and full of Spicy, for $5. It was too warm to wear it then but fall has officially arrived here now so I got it out tonight and used it after my shave.

This stuff is not like Old Spice. There is no powder or floral in this at all. I smell like a pumpkin pie.

I think this will do nicely for the next month or so. Though the wife will probably throw a fit and complain that I smell old. :-\
 
I've been using the "new" bottle of Oland I just got. Man, that stuff must have percolated in the decanter some - it is so crisp and blunt! I like it!
 
Though I've never seen it in the wild there's supposed to be an Oland cologne. Can't image how wonderful that stuff is - the aftershave is already pretty potent!

After one shave, I slapped on Wild Country ... And noticed it.

Examined the decanter; it was cologne ...which worked fine as aftershave ... If you like WC ... A lot.
