Mary Moore’s eye for all things worldly and handmade is evident in the array of goods within the four walls of Simple Pleasures. Mary’s love of special boutiques and beautiful things led her to open the store 25 years ago. It’s situated on the farthest edge of the East Side, tucked away like a small garden cottage with gifts small and large. The Christmas season is one of Mary and her daughter Alice’s favorites, and they go all out with decor and gifts, including German and Scandinavian ornaments and wreaths handmade in their small courtyard on weekends. Mary focuses her collection on handmade goods that are one-of-a-kind: think delicate chocolates from France and Italy, hand-beaded animals made by women in South Africa, French silk scarves and delicate jewelry and home goods. Search the unique selection and find the gift for that person on your list who has everything.
