Lotsa Memories: Antiques and More is the brainchild of Donna Ratzlaff, whose first venture into antiques was with a booth in McCaysville, GA. Her first shop was in Peddler’s Village, near Ranger, NC. She had a shop in downtown Murphy from 2014 until the end of 2019, when it was closed due to health reasons.

The shop will reopen in the spring of 2021 at a new location, but with the same name (Lotsa Memories: Antiques and More), the same casual atmosphere, and the same friendly staff.
