About Us

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 Donna’s health situation.

The shop in downtown Murphy was across from the theater.

The shop’s latest location is in a small strip mall, just across Hwy. 64W from Murphy’s Rib Country. A lot of work has gone into making a shop that you will find friendly and packed with treasures!

We were just getting started on the shop here…. that’s Rib Country just across the highway.

The first sign is up, and Donna’s bench is out in front.

There are a lot of gift ideas in the shop–from elephants to Beatles records to a man cave with all kinds of tools–and lovely dishes, Cherokee Indian crafts, musical instruments—just come on in and see it all for yourself.
