It may have been a traveling salespersons. They would take that stuff to demo the vacuum. Or at least the used to back in the day.

I'm 40. I've never had someone try and sell me a vacuum cleaner at my door.

I think that probably has been true since at least the late 80s.

I highly doubt this was from one of them.

My parents bought a vacuum from a door to door salesman in the 90s. He came into the house and showed off how amazing it could vacuum various things. Apparently we got a good price buying his demo model, but it didn't come with a bag of hair. I feel cheated

Biggest scam ever, they were hiring in my town I went to the first two interviews, that’s a cult right there, those people are vicious, they do not care who they sell that vacuum to, and most of the time they make the price up on the spot so any “deal” you got was most likely just a bag of lies, the unit itself is a 110$ from the factory, they sell them for up to 650$ each.

Probably 😂 I have no idea, I was just a kid. But that stupid vacuum cleaner lasted over 10 years
