Eve Plumb is reminiscing on her favorite memories with the cast of The Brady Bunch.

On Wednesday, the actress, 65, announced she would be auctioning off a few items from her “very Brady” collection through Julien's Auctions and took some time to share a little insight into the history of each keepsake.

In a video of the auction items, Plumb, who took on the role of Jan Brady in The Brady Bunch from 1969 to 1974, opened up about a special gift she once received from her TV father, Robert Reed.

“One Christmas Robert Reed gave all of us Super Eight cameras because he was taking us on a trip — first to New York City and then on the QA2 to London,” she recalled as photos she snapped on the trip played on screen.  “It was so much fun to be traveling with Robert and everybody in the cast.”

Elsewhere in the clip, Plumb introduced a butterfly piece she created using needlepoint while waiting to film her takes on the classic ABC sitcom. The actress revealed how her late costars, Florence Henderson (Carol Brady) and Ann B. Davis (Alice Nelson), introduced her and the rest of the cast to the pastime.

“In the 1970s, doing needlepoint became quite popular,” she explained. "You could do it all day long and still be quiet while they were filming.”
