Simple Things is an absolutely lovely country store in the quaint town of Beachburg, Ontario in the heart of the Ottawa Valley’s Whitewater Region. The town’s original creamery is now home to a retail store and factory boutique. Simple Things offers unique finds for lifestyle, home, cottage and garden, and carries a large selection of Canadian made and eco-friendly gifts. The addition of a seasonal Garden Café in the summer of 2010 met with accolades from visitors, and is one of the many reasons why Simple Things has become such an embraced destination for shopping.
The captivating charm of Simple Things is the shopping experience. Stepping into the store is a little bit like stepping back to a time when shop keepers took pride in their wares and really cared about customers. Visitors are often inspired by seasonal offerings and displays, and freqently comment on just how good the store smells. Often gourmet foods are available to be sampled while browsing, and guests are always welcome to take time out on the front porch to enjoy a Kicking Horse cappuccino or a freshly baked treat.
This great little store took a large revolutionary leap in 2007 when it launched an eco-friendly line of handmade soy candles under the banner “Whitewater Premium Candle Co.” and a boutique line of handmade soaps and personal care products known as “Whitewater Bath & Body”. Simple Things’ commitment to quality craftsmanship continues to propel their success, and thus they are very pleased to announce that in response to the growing demand for the Whitewater branded products, select retailers across Canada now carry their product lines.
