The owners of the Tupelo Hardware Store, the place where Gladys bought her son his First guitar, found another interesting way to cash in on Elvis. A few weeks ago, the glass of the display case in which the guitar was stored, broke because of an accident. The 400 pieces of glass of the original counter, are now for sale for 4.95 $US each – including a certificate of authenticity.
Shirley Sumner, JD’s daughter, has cleaned up the garage, or so it seems. She’s offering some unusual personal belongings of her father, such as a set of old ties (400 dollar each), a tire of a car that Elvis gave JD (4.000 dollar), a contract (12.000 dollar) and a 1972 poster (1200 dollar). Other items are Las Vegas menus, pictures and albums.
