Joie de Vivre opened its doors in 1984. Through that door lies a world of delightful items – clever, beautiful and original, as well as just plain wacky! We carry gifts for all ages and interests. Our stock includes wind-up toys, kaleidoscopes, jewelry, flashing rings, clocks, toasters, snowglobes, music boxes, books, postcards, rubber ducks, singing goats and all kinds of other things designed to enchant, or give pleasure through the unexpected. We enjoy helping our customers find the right thing be it a 50 cent finger monster or a 75 dollars wind chime. Our goal: bring a little more “joie” to the world! Please stroll up Mass. Ave and visit us .. we’re only a ten minute walk from the square – for hours and directions, visit our website.
