Hello friends

We hope you are all well.

We are heeding the warnings, and the shop will be closed for a while.

We understand that your priorities have probably shifted.
Ours definitely have.
We are confident that Simple Pleasures will be fine.
In our (almost) 28 years we have weathered many storms.

The coronavirus will impact so many people in so many different ways.
It’s still difficult to imagine the possible extent of the waves and ripples.
Our strong and kind community will stay the course.

If, in time, you're in need of a diversion ...
We are updating our online store. It’s a slow-work-in-progress.
If you like to browse as a pleasant distraction - the new address is

We can’t really duplicate the colorful in-person
Simple Pleasures experience, glitches and all,
but we’ll try to keep adding new things online, and learn as we go.
Perhaps our site will provide a few moments of brightness.
Window shopping is still a pastime. An offering of cheer.

If you’d like to see a variety of things or hear from us more often
please follow us on Instagram@simplepleasuresprovidence

If there is anything you need, if you have special requests,
if you would like pictures of particular items - we’re happy to help you

Easter is coming, and we have 90 pounds of jelly beans sitting in the shop,
so any online/email order will include free jelly beans !

Thank you for your continued support and friendship over many years.
We so appreciate all of our customers, and hope to see you again soon.

with our very best wishes,
Mary and Alice Moore
