Start the summer season

with a perfect cartoon . . .

Best of . . .

Just in time to start the summer season - 

Simple Pleasures was awarded "Best Local Secret" in Yankee Magazine

A nice little nod from the venerable New England mag: 
“This former forge laced with rosebushes and ivy feels like a secret garden. 
The owner, a RISD grad, scouts the globe to present an international bazaar, 
from batik scarves to lush soaps to folk art.”

Best of New England - Editor's Choice Winner

We heart Mom

A dear little ceramic heart dish might be part of some

Simple Pleasures had a nice mention as a featured green business in the spring People's Power and Light newsletter. New England Green Start, and New England Wind, and Mass Energy Consumers Alliance are in a creative non-profit alternative energy partnership. For a few extra dollars a month on your electric bill, you can opt to have your usage provided by clean renewable energy sources. We do. At work and at home. Please join us! It's a small thing, easy, a statement of planetary intent, and ultimately cheaper than doing nothing.
