A career in makeup? Cottage Grove's Perkins has got it covered
Leona Perkins got off to a rough start selling rouge.
In 1963 Perkins, who was living in Old Cottage Grove, got a call from someone asking if she would like to sell Avon makeup and beauty products.
Perkins gave the job to her daughter, who drove off the road while selling products door to door.
“I thought, ‘Well, I don’t think this is going to work,’ so I did it,” Perkins recalled.
