Candy Rivals Collect In Harmony
PEZ collectors are a peaceful bunch who embrace other candy fiends.
Tuesday, April 6, 2010 17:18 GMTSURFSIDE BEACH, S.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Sometimes, rival gangs can get along.
That at least proves true for diehard candy fans according to PEZ dispenser collector Richard Belyski, whos organizing the 12th Annual PEZ Collectors Gathering in Stamford, Connecticut, this weekend (Apr. 8-10).
This year, Belyski invited all collectors to participate, including people who enjoy M&M, Coca-Cola, and Kool-Aid memorabilia, and hes sure no gang fights over territory will ensue.
He says, PEZ collectors are a friendly bunch. When they find someone that collects like they do, they wanna bond. You find out youre not alone, and youre not the strange one.
Belyski thinks some might convert to PEZ collecting after seeing all the cool dispensers people have on display.
He might even open up to other candy collecting himself.
Though he expects everyone to get along just fine, he hopes he doesnt end up reading about a riot breaking out at the gathering in the newspaper.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
