Hi everyone. Is anyone close to Memphis? I was contacted yesterday by Randy Carroll who's late partner collected vacuums. He is moving shortly and needs to sell the machines right away. I am too far away to be interested but, if anyone here would like to talk to him and make a deal please let me know and I can give you his email and/or phone number.

Memphis vacs

Actually there are very few vacs I would want as I need a vac store clean out spring through summer.And from my eastern edge of TN to Memphis is supposed to be further than the Canadian border.A list or pictures would be very helpful.Wonder if the collection includes the Royal Elvis bought for Graceland along with new carpet in the 70s??(There is an invoice pictured in an Elvis auction collection.)

I do want to know what that Royal upright looks like, the one that Elvis bought for his Graceland complex?

When I find the right Elvis book it will only show the invoice that was auctioned with a date and possible model no.Is seems the carpet store also sold Royal and tried to include with carpet sales.
I repeat-A list or pictures of available vacs would be helpful to all.

Elvis Royal

The Guernsey's catalog for the 1999 Elvis auction at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas shows an invoice from "Duck's Carpets" including "one Royal vacuum cleaner" as well as carpet for many rooms for a total of $9730.83.
