About Us

Emma Rae's is a family owned business established by Teddy and Janet Papuga of DeWitt, Iowa in April 2015.  Named after their one-year-old granddaughter, Emma Rae Nissen, Ted began this venture to enhance shopping in downtown DeWitt and leave a legacy for their children, Tracy (& Brandon) Nissen and Theodore Papuga, and their grandchildren, Logan, Cierra, Emma Rae, and Ellie Jean. Keeping the business in the family, Teddy's sister, Sue McKamey is the friendly face you'll find behind the counter.

Emma Rae's is an antique mall located right on DeWitt's main street (6th Avenue) in the building where True Value Hardware used to be. With more than 100 Vendors and over 10,000 square feet of space, Emma Rae's is an antique shopper's paradise.
