Finding the value of Avon Collectibles- Do-it-yourself or Collector Price Guides ?

Tips for “Do-it-Yourselfers”
For those who want to do their own research, the internet can be a vast source of information. A good rule of thumb is to find 3 or more examples of the item you are researching to get a general idea of the current value of your item. This is an option if the items are items you are researching are generally available online. This method also works offline by frequenting shops, auctions, etc that carry similar items.We are aware that many of our visitors have used our online shop to research some of the collectibles they own. For this reason we are often asked by visitors about the value of other items they own, or if their items are not considered collectible simply because we do not carry them. We carry a few hundred of the tens of thousands of Avon Collectibles that were ever produced, so while you might by chance find an item you are researching in our store or elsewhere online, including Avon Collectibles on Ebay (a link partner) , you also might not. Most items however will eventually show up somewhere online.

Below you will find the resources we heartily recommend as the most helpful resources available. Price guides are becoming scarce, you might try your Local library to see if a copy is available
