A gentleman recently contacted me with photos of vintage Mary Quant makeup that he has put up for sale.
I do not receive anything from the proceeds but I thought you might enjoy the photos of these items which originate from the late 1960s and early 1970s.
In the yellow daisy tin are 10 colourful Mary Quant Crayons in almost-pristine condition.
Apparently, a set of these hard-to-find crayons has been bought by the Museum of London. I don’t think collectors would use them but the seller tells me that these items have been stored in a cool, dark box for the last 40-50 years.
For more photos, do visit the eBay auction link here.
To learn more about cosmetics from the same era as Mary Quant (Biba, for instance), do watch Lisa Eldrige’s lovely video on vintage makeup.
I ♥ makeup memory lane!
