The 500 Club
CPC 500 Club Certificate for Mrs. W. G. Hobbs of New Mexico
~3 May 1929
Beginning in 1926, the California Perfume
Company began recognizing a higher level of sales achievement attained by
many of it's representatives: $500.00 sales, retail, during one calendar
year. Prior to the awarding of this certificate, the only sales
benchmark commanding any recognition was $250.00. It seems that the
initiation of the $500.00 club came a little late due to the fact that
only three short years later, in 1929, the
CPC Star Medallion Award was introduced to recognize the superior sales
achievement of $1000.00 and greater in one calendar year.
CPC 500 Club Certificate for Mrs. B. W. Poole of District
~20 November 1939
Note: This Certificate was
available for use in the early 1930's through 1936, after which
the certificate shown immediately below
was used. This
certificate awarded to Mrs. Poole was probably a "left over".
Interestingly, the date on this certificate (20 November 1939)
actually AFTER the company's formal name change to Avon
Products, Inc. (6 October 1939).
