Re: Need Advice on Unique Items

I have not heard from the NAAC (National Association of Avon Collectors) for a few years, so I don't know if they are still active.
This is the last contact info they gave us :
NAAC
DEPT. AT
P.O. BOX 7006
KANSAS CITY, MO 64113

If you contact them and hear back, please update us here.
Thanks!
