In the 1950s, saleswoman Brownie Wise propelled Tupperware to skyrocketing success through home party sales. In this living history program, historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., tells the story of Wise’s rise from single mother to head of an enormous sales force of housewives who sold Earl Tupper’s flexible “burping” bowls at home parties. Forced out in 1957, she disappeared, but the Tupperware Home Parties she pioneered remain the gold standard for home party selling.
The North Shore Programming Consortium consists of five local libraries(Bayville, Glen Cove, Gold Coast, Locust Valley and Oyster Bay) that have come together to bring our patrons more of a variety in adult programming in a more cost effective way.
We hope you enjoy the programs now accessible from the Consortium!
