For Elvis' birthday: Rad items every modern-day Elvis collector should own
The thing about Elvis is that he never, ever gets old. Not even on the occasion of his 80th birthday (which happens to be today). No matter how long it’s been since the king of rock n’ roll reigned, there will always be super-fans spending mad money on Elvis memorabilia. In fact, there’s even a new generation of Elvis collectors out there, as witnessed by all the awesome arts, crafts and random stuff on—where else?—Etsy. So to honor the king, and his new legion of fans, here’s some cool, new-era Elvis items you should totally consider including in your Elvis shrine.
