A strand of Elvis Presley’s hair is tucked away on an antique stall in Oswestry, trader.


A memoribilia collector was ‘All Shook Up’ when he made the find while living in America.


Now he has put the bizarre souvenir up for sale on his stall in the Cambrian House Emporium in Oswestry. 


He bought the piece of Elvis’s hair from his barber and it came with a certificate of authenticity. Barber Homer Gill Gilleland toured with Elvis for more than 20 years.


He dyed the singer’s hair black and then cut it, saving strands in a towel which he sold after the singer’s death in 1977.
