The Drugstore Booth

As a teenager, Ginny Hensley (Cline's birth name) made about $12 a week working in Gaunt's Drugstore and soda fountain, around the corner from where she lived on Kent Street in Winchester, Virginia. The museum includes a wooden booth and vintage lime-green Hamilton Beach milkshake maker, with the Gaunt's sign hanging above it. Nearby are the suede, fringed vest and skirt she wore during early singing engagements around her hometown. It is the earliest of Cline's outfits known to exist. Of special note are the rhinestones, applied to the outfit by the singer herself.
