Graceland Too auction

HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. (WTVA) — Saturday marked the end of an era for the hundreds of thousands of Graceland Too fans.

"It just kind of became a tradition and we made a lot of memories here," Ashley Taylor said. "We just wanted to be apart of the day."

For almost 25 years, Graceland Too's owner, Paul MacLeod gave tours to anyone who stopped by at anytime.

His home, crammed with Elvis collectibles, stayed open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year.

Fans of the museum call it a landmark in Holly Springs and said MacLeod was Elvis' biggest fan.

Now, Graceland Too is closed.

"It's a very sad day, but it's also a celebration of his life," Mark Price said. "He was a very passionate guy."

Saturday all of the items inside were put up for auction.

"It's completely different than anything we've ever tackled," Spur K auctioneer Greg Kinard said.

Many of the museum's biggest fans came out and watched as each memory was sold.

Little did they know, an even bigger Elvis fan than MacLeod lived just a few states away.

An online bidder in Georgia purchased nearly all of the contents of the home for $54,500.

Now, everything MacLeod spent a lifetime collecting is in the hands of someone else who loves The King just as much as he did.
