The Pez display is in place in the new space, which is an indicator that I am now "officially moved". The Pez have really become a focal point within the space. It results in many questions/comments which vary depending on the age of inquirer.
How long have you been collecting pez?
about 20 years
How many do you have?
Are any of them worth a lot of money?
I only buy them when they are introduced, so I have usually paid about $1.29 or so for each. Over the years, people have given me some that are actually worth much more (they usually are the ones without the feet)
I never knew there were so many?
there are well over 1000
What are those?
asked by someone from a deprived childhood
Do you have all of them?
Can I have (fill in character)?
I do have extras I give away, although I chose
Who ate all that candy?
(this is my favorite, which is usually asked by an 8-10 year boy. I get to say, "I did" and I gain their respect, not because I have all the dispensers, but because I ate all the candy)
