Finding the value of Avon Collectibles

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 showcase them. We showcase 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 showcase or elsewhere online, including Avon Collectibles on Ebay (paid link)) , you also might not. Most items however will eventually show up somewhere online.

  1. I have the lantern, the hammer, the spark plug, the the bowling pen Avon bottles. All approx 40-50 yrs old. Does anyone know the value?

    1. Just found your question. I live in France but am English. I have probably the largest collection in the world and have written 2 price guides. Have Avon museum here also. There are several types of lanterns ranging from 2.00 to 15.00. The hammer would be about 10.00 and the spark plug and bowling pin, came in two sizes, are of low value. If selling, it is best to dispose of content but have original box. Avon is collected empty except for the miniature real perfume ones. Hope this helps. Regards, Wendy.

  2. We have many avon items for sale. Many perfume bottles, trinkets and other items. If you are interested in a certain item let me know and I will check to see if we have it. We are looking to sell all items.

  3. Hi My name is Karen Manuel I have a large Avon collection for sale not sure what there Worth but I have to sale moving and can’t take them

  4. Hi Wendy,
    I’m trying to identify an Avon bottle that came to me in a “grab” box. I know nothing about Avon and the label is gone so I went to eBay hoping to see one like it. I searched both current and completed item and didn’t see anything close. I’m hoping you can help.
    The bottle is clear glass shaped like a flower with long slender petals that widen at the ends. The cap is a gold receptacle with a small part of the peduncle represented. it is stamped Avon on the underside. it is 3″ tall and roughly 2 1/2″ wide at the widest. It is filled with blue fluid that is faintly scented but I think it is dyed water. I saw lots of bells but this is not a bell.
    I know this is not a comment and who knows when you might see this, or if you ever will. I’m computer illiterate and have no idea how I might have contacted you another way. However, if you do see it I would very much appreciate anything you can tell me.

    Thank you for your time, Rick

  5. My wife’s grandmother has been selling avon for 35-40 years and has over 30 Anual Albee figurines as well as dozens of awards. She is trying to figure out the value of them as she’s getting much older and looking into downsizing on non essentials. Any ideas/insight would be greatly appreciated.
