Joni Mabe’s Panoramic Encyclopedia of Everything Elvis

So you think you’re an Elvis fan? Meet Joni Mabe, the Queen of the King. Joni was listening to Elvis on the radio the day he died in 1977. That night she made her first piece of Elvis art and today she has about 30,000 Elvis objects including posters, lunchboxes, decanters, bedspreads, toenail clippers and of course her own unique pieces. Joni is probably most famous for the ‘Elvis Wart’, which was removed from Elvis’ hand before he joined the army in 1958. She has turned down several offers for it, including one from a group called ‘American’s for cloning Elvis’.

If you build it, they will come

Joni Mabe’s Encyclopedia of Everything Elvis is in Cornelia, about 71 miles from Atlanta. The collection is housed in the Loudermilk boarding House, a historic building in itself.

Last time we checked, the museum was open on Fridays and Saturdays, 10am to 5pm from April to November, or by appointment. You might want to contact Joni before making the trip.
