Can anybody remember the little shop next to Wax-N-Fax in Little 5 Points, Atlanta called "We Ain't Mad At Nobody", run by a dour bearded hipppie type gentleman?

Online, I'm finding almost nothing so far for "we ain't mad at nobody" "little five points":

Nov 18, 2009 ... a tiny record store called Wax 'n Facts at Little Five Points in Atlanta, where the proprietor had hung a sign that said, "We ain't mad at nobody.

Seems a photograph of more wouldn't be out of the question. I used to live nearby, grocery shopped at Little 5 Points when there was even a Supermarket there. I was back up Moreland, across Ponce De Leon and in some apartments at "Briarcliff Court", circa 1981-82.

Will,

I work at Georgia State University's AJC photo archive. After scanning some Little 5 Points photos from the 80s, I came across your post when doing research. Currently, we have quite a few photos from that time frame online. See them here:

I actually scanned an image of the "We Ain't Mad at Nobody" storefront. It will be online sometime this week. I am trying to get all of the information. What kind of company was this? What did they sell?

That link doesn't work. Instead, go to http://digitalcollections.library.gsu.edu/cdm... and search "AJCNS1980-09-11-01* "

Finally got back to this, and found the scan of the storefront!

I see now why I was having trouble finding inofrmation on the shop as the name is really We Ain't Mad With Nobody (Little Five Points, Atlanta, Georgia, September 19, 1980) not "at" as I misremembered it all these years.

The shop was sort of a "Curios" place, almost Twilight Zone in vibe.
