|03:11 pm - To avon or not to von, that is the question|
So my avon representative is retiring. This distresses me as I'm now quite addicted. I figure my options are as follows:
- Wait a while and I'll forget about it.
- Become a representative.
- Convince my current representative to either:
- Continue selling.
- Become my partner. Let her be the visable face, and I'll take over the administrative work and we split whatever profits there are.
- Talk someone else around here into becoming a representative.
- Buy online, which seems to be okay, but no catalogues, and I like the catalogues.

How about you see if she knows another rep in the area that can take over helping you out?
or go with #5
...I always like the #5

You are so addicted, it's not even funny.
That is quite the quandry you have there...I wouldn't recommend online unless you have large orders since the shipping is like...OMG. I would ask if she knows another rep to help ya out and I am sure the new rep would be more than welcome to take you on. I don't have to worry since the loan officer I work with sells Avon so my rep is right in my office. Wish ya luck.
Call them at TEL 1-800-FOR-AVON 1-800-367-2866 or 1-212-282-7000.
Ask them if they can direct you to a person not a web site who will bring you catelogs, sell you products and deliver them in person. Tell them you are an old lady who can't get out of the house and does not have an internet connection.
Mine is also retiring- she sent me a note saying that, IIRC, it is only $10 to become a rep, and you get a 20% discount, so it sounds like you would come out ahead even if you had no customers other than yourself.

If this is the worst of your problems, I'd say your life is going pretty well. =)
Sounds like her sister will take it over! woohoo!
