Swedes Jealous Of American Pez Collectors

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Swedish Pez collectors are green with envy at Americans’ vintage dispenser collections.

So says Richard Belyski, organizer of the 8th Annual “Pez in the Sun Gathering,” where fans of the old school candy dispensers will come together to buy, sell, and trade Pez this Saturday (Oct. 25) in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

This year, the event will be linked up via the Internet with the first ever gathering happening in Stockholm, Sweden, on the same day.

Belyski says the webcam placed at each Pez party may make the Swedes a tad jealous.

He says, “There might be a bit of envy since we’ve been having the convention here for years. Also, we have all the older Pez dispensers, more so than they do.”

Belyski says linking the two events will give attendees a chance to meet collectors who can supply them with the hard stuff.

He explains, “If they make a friend, they can probably trade with them and get the harder to find dispensers.”
