Wise introduced Tupper to the idea of selling directly to housewives in their home and just like that, the Tupperware Party was born!
The neighborhood Tupperware lady became a suburban icon - often a very rich one at that - with many becoming millionaires almost overnight.
To reward these successful ladies, Wise would fly the top sales producers from across the country to Tupperware HQ just outside of Orlando. Here they would spend several days at lavishly planned conventions, or Jubilees as they were called. Tupperware Jubilees are still held today; but now on six continents!

In early 1958, Tupper fired his superstar Wise, then sold the company several months later to the Rexall Drug Company for $16 million. In the early 1960's, Tupperware began sales in Europe, Asia and Latin America. Worldwide sales of Tupperware expanded as well, and today Tupperware is sold in more than 100 countries through the original "house party" concept and online.
Since Tupperware was so well-made and cared for, a whole new generation is discovering the joys of vintage Tupperware products available on Etsy. Burp on my friends, burp on!
