Brief background on these Duffel Bags used by Pez Outlaw to hand carry 6 to 800,000 Pez Dispensers into the USA from other countries. As Pez Outlaw I sold roughly 2 Million Pez Dispenser and earned 4.5 Million dollars in 11 years. These Duffel Bags played a very big role in transporting/smuggling all these pez.
These Duffel Bags were used as my primary means of transporting the Pez Dispensers I purchased in my over 100 trips abroad. Countries visited to buy Pez were Austria, Australia, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Germany, France, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Spain, and South Africa.
In each trip I transported on average 6 to 8,000 pez dispensers, coming to a total of 600,000 on the low side and 800,000 pez on the high side. All hand carried across international borders in these Duffel Bags.
Step one was to put every Pez Dispenser into a 3 by 6 inch clear or made in Hungary zip lock bag. As required by US Customs, every pez dispenser had to have country of origin, so if it had it on stem, clear bag, if not made in Hungary bag.
The next step was to double bag the Duffel bags one in side the other, then line with cardboard.
Step 3 was to dump 3 to 5 cases of pez in each Duffel Bag. Depending on the size of Duffel or Cargo bag, each bag contained on average 1,200 pez dispensers.
On each trip I brought back between 6 and 8 Duffel/Cargo Bags. This required 2 large freight carts at airport curb @ $50.00 per cart in porter tips. Extra luggage back then was $100 to $120 per bag. To transport the Swedish haul to the airport it took 2 Taxi Cabs plus my rental car to haul it all and that was not unusual.
You want to know a sight that will really break your heart. Several times while waiting to get off a plane, I was able to watch my luggage being removed from the cargo hold. I sat looking out the window of the plane to see my duffel bags tossed from the hatch down onto the tarmac. At least an eight or ten foot drop. Now that will break your heart.
black bags, green bags, springs. In my early travels I used standard military type green duffel bags for transporting Pez dispensers. Not the little ones you see slung over one shoulder with ease. No, I used the ones that hunch you over and when full weigh about 100 pounds. You see the goal was 1200 pez dispensers per bag. A few years in I switched to a very large black canvas cargo type bag that zipped across the top for transporting Pez dispensers. I always lined the exterior with 1 layer of cardboard and individually zip lock bagged each pez dispenser.
Over a 10 year period I spent well over 1/2 million Dollars cash on Pez dispensers in Hungary alone. At least $250,000.00 of that was in the form of bribes, or money skimmed off the top for services rendered. Everybody got a piece of the Pez Money.
Now For the Fun Stuff
In the beginning of my travels abroad I used to paddle-lock all of my Duffel/Cargo Bags closed.
The pictures below will give you an idea how that went over with US Customs Officials.
US Customs Officials cut all the locks off whenever my luggage was lost. Which happened a lot, though in my over 100 trips I never lost a bag forever. Though on one occasion I did lose my luggage for approximately 10 days. Usually I just unlocked the bags for customs inspection, but when my bags were flying solo the locks got cut. I found these 2 cut locks And this slip of paper in the bags when I got them out for re-storage.
You ever hear the stories about the Japanese soldiers on Islands 20 years after WW2 that didn't know the war was over? Well you'll never guess or maybe you will. After 2 decades I found these 2 sole survivor Pez Dispensers in my old Duffel/Cargo Bags when I got them out for re-storage.
On the Business channel today they were talking about the widespread corruption in Hungary.
I always thought of it as a vigorous entrepreneurial spirit. Why else do you think I spent over a decade traveling to n buying Pez There. I love Hungary.
Pez Outlaw always felt very much at home in Hungary.
Be Honest, You thought for sure that with this kind of a buildup I wouldn't be able to resist doing the obvious. Because let's be honest restraint is not my nature. I can't explain it, but for now I'm not gonna do it.
Well that's today, we'll talk again soon.
