Where We Are

Little Shop of Stories is located on Decatur’s historic Square. We’re in the same building as Starbucks – feel free to bring your highly-caffeinated beverages into our shop so that you can bounce off the walls with us – on the corner of West Ponce de Leon Avenue and East Court Square.

Parking & MARTA

A variety of parking options are available in downtown Decatur, and detailed information can be found here. Typically, the best option is at the parking structure next to the new courthouse. The entrance is on West Trinity Place between North McDonough Street and Commerce Drive. There is a $6 fee, payable upon leaving. While that is rather expensive, there is typically no charge if you leave the lot after 6:00 p.m. or so, Monday through Friday, and is free all weekend long. (The exception is during big Decatur events.) We are also a very short walk from the Decatur MARTA station, on the system’s Blue Line (formerly known as the east-west rail line). A Marta map and additional information can be found here.


Little Shop of Stories is proud to be a Partner in Education with City Schools of Decatur and to work with Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy, Room to Read, Literacy Volunteers of Atlanta, Synchronicity Theater, and the DeKalb History Center. We are also an ecstatic supporter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Decatur Book Festival presented by DeKalb Medical.

Our specialty is finding just the right book for you to fall in love with—no matter your age, reading level, or interest. (And then we’ll find the next one for you, and the next one . . . ) We also offer unique and special gift ideas including plush toys, activity kits, educational games, puzzles, and much more.
