Tupelo Hardware takes one back to their grandparents’ days when time ran slower and life was simpler. Nestled in the quaint surroundings of downtown Tupelo, Mississippi, TUPELO Hardware is a working, functioning hardware store but still uses the old wood display cases and racks that...More

This would be worth a look even without the Elvis connection but this is where he got his first guitar and an x on the floor marks the spot. It's a really old fashioned hardware shop that sells everything you can think of and the...More

A large hardware store along the Main Street. Very welcoming and friendly staff, eager to tell the tale of when Elvis and his mother came to buy his first guitar there. I guess the layout of the store is pretty much as it would have...More

A time capsule which is famous for where Glady’s Presley bought her son his first guitar. The building is original and is the decor inside is exactly how it was back when the Presley’s shopped there.
