This place is for sure a tourist trap. However, it does have some really neat things here. We purchased some seashell wind chimes here, and they are really nice. A great place to go if you want to pick up a few things for your memories or for the kids. It also has a wide selection of all sorts of items from swimwear to home decor.
Elvis' Childhood Home in Tupelo is a fiendishly bad waste of effort. A creepy woman sits on the front porch, silent as the grave, until you produce the requisite $5.

She recites a monotone memorized speech about Elvis being born here. After a minute, she finishes and returns to her silent reverie. All in all, an odd experience. Plus, the house isn't very interesting, particularly not compared to Graceland.
