What's wrong with Ginger...she needs money too?
I was wondering, is there a kind of Elvis museum, besides Graceland?

I wish I had been the recipient also! I think I'd live in a homeless shelter before I could part with anything that Elvis gave me! I got a scarf in Vegas.....I sure wouldn't sell it either! LOL

I don't think anyone is "upset" so to speak. We are dumbfounded that something so precious is being sold because we would do anything to have been given something from Elvis. Nobody is screaming mad or yelling, etc. Just basic conversation.

You're absolutely right. I would understand if she needed money for a severe health problem but apart from this...? Does anyone know how much money she has got? And same goes for the love letter from Elvis Anita Wood is selling....:blink:

Yes, I saw him 10 times. 7 times in concert, and the summers of 71, 72 and 73 in Vegas. In 72 and 73 I was there for opening night. Yes, I got a scarf and kisses!!! My father(God rest his soul) would always tip "Emilio" the maitre d so that we could sit front and center. Oh, my goodness...those were the days!!

I got a kiss AND a scarf on opening night, August 6, 1973. He was wearing the "Aloha" jumpsuit, and I was lucky enough to be front and center! I would not take a million dollars for my Elvis memories..........:D

It seems like anything and everything that is stated on here tends to get people stirred up one way or another. We need to remember that everbody is entitled to their opinion, but, for the record, I think Ginger is NUTS to sell anything!!

Whatever the need to sell these items, I for one am jealous of the person who can afford to purchase these items. :'(

I know exactly what you mean....if I could afford it - I'd buy everything I see of Elvis' off ebay! (and wherever else!) I've been collecting original photo's off ebay...photo's taken by fans, etc. and also some concert photo's. No copies if I can help it. But be careful, some download pics from the internet and print them and sell them on ebay. I've been burned couple times like that....it's like downloading the pics we have on the forum gallery and printing them and selling them....not cool!

I don't understand this. I looked and couldn't find but I could have sworn that on some thread here that someone mentioned Ginger was married to a lawyer? and living in New York. That doesn't sound like she needs the money.

Her hubby is not an Elvis fan???????? What a loser!!!!! He must be a Commie..LOL! How could she marry someone that didn't like Elvis?? I always suspected that she was beautiful to look at and probably empty between the ears. :D

My thoughts, too. I would do most anything for that rainbow flamed jacket. Especially if it came with an 16x20 original photograph (because I have a frame for it). And ask my husband, I'm a packrat anyway, but no way could I get rid of any personal posession that Elvis gave me!

when you're with a girl you give her jewellry or clothes for herself but you don't go:

hey here is an old shirt of mine.... you may have it.

No way.

She took her bags and I'm pretty sure she took all she could, knowing she could sell it later for lots of dollars...

She may have been young but she was not naive at all;)

When did Myrna Smith say that?? Jeezzz, Ginger was a gold-digger. I can't imagine thinking of that at a time like that, maybe she did it when they pushed her aside and wouldn't let her ride in the ambulance.:angry:

I would treasure all of it, but I cannot judge why Ginger is selling them, maybe she needs the money...

She is the only person who has not written a book on Elvis...yet! :)

Of course all of us would treasure anything that Elvis would have touched but she actually knew him. Those items probably have a lot of emotions associated with them. If she really didn't care about him she would have gotten rid of this stuff long ago. Sometimes people get rid of things to release the emotional baggage. I don't fault Ginger for this. She's one of the few people that doesn't get anything from her relationship with Elvis. I respect her.

Myrna Smith said it in an interview I have on DVD

The way she said it, looking at her face and the expression in it said enough to me...

She didn't like Ginger one single bit.

No, of course not.

Coz Elvis never gave away any of his clothes to anyone ... right?? :doh:

You're assuming Myrna's quote about Ginger not being naive means she must have been a thief, and that is grossly unfair.

Getlo
10-24-2007, 09:18 PM
Say, here's an off-the-wall thought ...

Maybe, just maybe, after 30 years, Ginger doesn't need or want the stuff at all and wants to see the stuff go to other fans who'd appreciate it?

Or, is that too rational an idea that she may possibly be a nice chick after all?

The stuff is hers to do with as she pleases. I hope she makes handfuls of money if indeed the sale details are true.

riley
10-24-2007, 09:28 PM
it is bit of a common knowledge you know, circling around.
You must know that people who were present at the time in the house, when Elvis just had died, sometimes begin to speak to relatives, to friends etc etc...

Not everyone who was present at the house, who witnesed Vernon totally devastated, who saw a total chaos, who saw certain people going upstairs and come back with bags, who saw that Vernon had not the presence of mind to react, etc etc wrote a book or is necessarily a big name...

But people talk and some irrelevant things become of a certain importance afterwards.

There were lots of people , also working people on the property who saw things going on and they talked about it like I said to others and that is the way certain stories saw the daylight.

Am I sure:
well I was not a witness there but when you think like that then you can begin to question "every story "and "every single aspect about his life"

Because we were never present ourselves and "everything" we know and discuss here, the good and the bad things of every single Presley member is based on books, interviews, stories by people, etc etc


Some things will be indeed rumours and untrue facts I reckon that too.
I heard the story of Ginger coming out of the house with bags , years ago, alreaddy and now only this week I suddenly saw she is still selling stuff. So I guess the story of her, taking away his personal things is not pure wild guessing either.

She was not that long with him, didn't even live at Graceland, only came now and then to the house. People saw her with bags loaded, I can only make the conclusion that the story I heard was probably a true one, that's all.

riley
10-24-2007, 09:33 PM
Getlo,

Myrna said Ginger was not naive...

I don't say that her quote means she was a thief.

Ginger was not a naive girl, let's say Ginger knew very well what to do in various situations.

Elvis gave away clothes, that is true, but mostly then to the men in his entourage.

A guy does not give away his clothes to a women IMO, or at least not that many.

She may have asked for a memento but that is one piece then not a half dressing room (so to speak)
