ELVIS Presley’s ex-wife Priscilla will hold the “king of yard sales” next week and offload 4,000 items collected over 50 years at her Beverly Hills mansion, The Sun can reveal.
Priscilla, married to Elvis for six years from 1967 up to their 1973 divorce and mother of his only child, Lisa Marie, is downsizing and moving out of her $13million Beverly Hills home and into a $4.75million condo.

She and Elvis were married for six years and they had a daughter, Lisa Marie
She can’t take all her possessions with her so over four days from next Thursday she will be holding the ultimate yard sale.
It has now had to move online as plans to allow buyers onto her former property have been scrapped after 100,000 people registered an interest in attending.

Racks of designer clothes are featured in the sale
There will be items linked to Elvis, who died at their Graceland mansion in Memphis, TN, in 1977, included in the event.
However, the organizer of the sale, Will Munyon told The Sun no links to the King of Rock ’n’ Roll will be mentioned.
There are Priscilla’s shoes, jackets and dresses
All the clothes and fashion items are from high-end designers such as Dolce & Gabbana
One of the items is a child-sized fairground horse believed to have been used by Elvis and Priscilla’s daughter Lisa Marie, now 52, when she was a youngster.
From Thursday, 1,000 designer dresses and fashion items including shoes will be sold by Priscilla from labels such as Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Ralph Lauren, Alexander McQueen and Gucci.
Household and garden furniture is also being sold
Among the more quirky items is this tennis ball-shooting machine
Priscilla’s outdoor barbecue is also for sale
Old movie posters are also being sold
There will also be a selection of European and American antiques, designer shoes, garden furniture, movie posters from the 1930s and light fightings.
There is even a barbecue, a “Tennis Tutor” machine that shoots out tennis balls, bicycles, a running machine and antique-looking rifles.
Priscilla has also arranged for more than 250 boxes to be taken out of storage to also be included in the sale as well as two truckloads of furniture.
The prices for all the items will be fixed, ranging from $50 to approximately $5,000, and sales will be on a “first come, first served” basis.
The mansion itself was sold by Priscilla in December for $13million, $3million less than what she had originally asked, and she has to move out in just a few days.
Priscilla’s furniture is being off loaded
There are multiple sofas and chairs, coffee tables and plates
There are also scores of plates and kitchen wares
She is believed to have bought the mansion in the 1970s when she was still married to Elvis.
Elvis is thought to have visited her there to see their daughter after their divorce.
Speaking to Closer magazine in 2018, Priscilla called the house her “sanctuary” adding that she remained there over the years to be close to Lisa Marie.
She said: “Elvis stayed in the Holmby Hills home I found for us. We were very, very close, and I wanted to make sure his house was near to our daughter, Lisa Marie.
“And it’s a bit secluded with the gates, so you can’t see in. It was a sanctuary for me.”
Selling all the items, including this glassware, has been a huge challenge
Priscilla doesn’t have the space in her new home for all her possessions
Will Munyon, whose company Munyon and Sons Estate Sales Services is organising the sales event, told The Sun: “Priscilla thought, she’s moving out of a 10,000 sq ft house to a 3,000 sq ft French chateau-style condo so why does she need all this stuff?
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of interest so far, 100,000 people is just incredible. It’s the king of yard sales, for sure.
“There’s no way we can hold the sale at her house as we planned but all the items are there now.
“We’ll get pics of them online and anyone interested can bid by email and the first person to confirm the price will get it.
“There’s interest from all over the world so we’re going to have to ship items from Beverly Hills to any other country. It’s going to be quite a task.

This patriotic picture and chair will also be snapped up
These antique-looking rifles are also being sold
“The oldest items will be the ones associated with Elvis, because of course they’ll be from the time Priscilla was married to him.
“But we’re not going to advertise a direct link with Elvis, there won’t be a sign on a chair for example saying, ‘Elvis sat here.’ It’s just impractical to do that.
“Priscilla is the sweetest, gentlest person and I think she is as surprised as we are by the amount of interest.
“She doesn’t want to be rattling around a huge mansion by herself with all this stuff so she is glad it’s all going to go to good homes.
“We’re confident the people who purchase these items are going to love them as much as she has.
There is a range of art works available
There are scores of pictures and frames
One of the paintings is of an old sailing ship
“It’s a chance to own something quite special and a real piece of history.”
Priscilla’s move to a new, smaller home and the yard sale brings to a close a traumatic few months for her and her family.
Last July, she had to cope with the terrible suicide of grandson Benjamin Keough, 27, who killed himself with a shotgun in a bathroom at Lisa Marie’s Calabasas, CA, home after rowing with his girlfriend, Diana Pinto.
The Sun reported that alcohol and cocaine was found in his system according to a report released by LA County Coroner’s office.
A spokesman for Lisa Marie told at the time how the mom of four, who was already dealing with a long-running divorce from her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood, was “heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11 year old twins and her oldest daughter Riley.”

The spokesman added: “She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”
Benjamin was later interred at Graceland alongside his famous grandfather.
But in September The Sun told how Priscilla was left “horrified” and “saddened” after protestors daubed walls at Graceland with graffiti including “F*** Trump” and “Defund the police”.
She wrote in a Facebook post: “Concerning the graffiti at Graceland, I’m absolutely horrified that those in our own city disgraced the walls surrounding Graceland.
