They scream. You scream. The only thing to quiet this whole mess down? Take them for ice cream.
Put everyone in good humor by stopping by Decatur’s newest sweet shop, Relics & Rarities.
Owner Warren Pickard transformed the former auto repair shop into a nostalgic parlor that doubles as a spot to showcase his collection of classic cars. Grab a swivel stool and cone in the Fab Fifties front room or cruise back to the showroom to peruse Pickard’s eclectic fleet.
Packed with both kid-friendly stuff (a climbable Spiderman truck) and parent-pleasers (a 1901 Oldsmobile that still runs), Relics & Rarities is the perfect place to park your pack.
Think of it as meltdown management.
Relics & Rarities, 409 North McDonough Street, Decatur (404-963-7501 or relicsandrarities.googlepages.com).
