This weekend I finally hung up my PEZ shelves to display my collection, which has been boxed up since my move. Since I have so many shelves now (and more on the way), I really wanted a better way of hanging them in case I needed to move stuff around at some point. I decided to use Elfa shelving (minus the shelves) from the Container Store, and I rigged a way to hang the PEZ shelves using slightly adjusted S-hooks! Now I can easily take them down or swap one shelf for another as needed! It wasn't very fun being a "hardware guy", since I had to drill holes (and even buy a drill!), but now that they are up I'm thrilled! At my old condo, I had them up in four sections of six shelves, which took up a full wall and a half. Now I have them in two sections of twelve, so I have tons of room to grow! It was also a blast to display some of my newer PEZ that were still in their shipping boxes, like Hello Kitty and the Emergency Heroes set. By the way, if you're a PEZ collector, John Thompson makes excellent shelves for a great price!
