    This is one of those souvenirs that is sooooo cheeesy, not inspired like printing Elvis’ favorite food recipes on potholders, which is a completely organic concept in souvenirs of Elvis, as opposed to slapping a decal on anything it can adhere to like this otherwise generic glass bathroom container. Which is reason enough to qualify it as kitsch. Anything to make a pop buck.

    Once again, the fantastic potholders: https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2010/08/07/elvis-recipe-pot-holders/

    I have family in Memphis. I used to tour Graceland when they would let you walk up the drive. Now they make you take those awful little buses. The souvenir shops across the street from Graceland almost take up a whole city block! Elvis was the first concert I ever attended.
