From nervous newcomer to super saleswoman
She is often known as the “Tupperware Lady”, the “Tupp-erware Queen” or occasionally the “Plastic Lady” but Maree Bray does not seem to mind.
“It makes me smile when I get called things like that,” she laughed.
Twenty-two years ago, Maree went to a Tupperware party held by her sister-in-law and that was where it all began for her.
“The lady who was hosting the party told us that she had cleared $1000 selling the product,” Maree said. “So I started thinking, ‘Maybe I could do something like this’. It was good for some extra money.”
This year Maree was listed as number four in personal sales of about 10,000 Tupperware dem-onstrators from across Australia and New Zealand.
She has also been number one in WA for quite a few years.
When she first put the idea of selling Tupperware to her mother, Mum was doubtful Maree would ever go through with it.
“Mum said ‘You’ll never do that’ so, of course, when mum says you can’t do something, I went and did it,” Maree laughed.
