*From 1984 to 2020, Linda Given succeeded to bring a little more "joie" to the world from her retail store Joie de Vivre in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Joie de Vivre was well known for its delightful, clever, beautiful, original and just plain wacky gift items ~ and for its wonderful collection of handcrafted and artistic kaleidoscopes. Joie de Vivre closed its doors in November 2020 after 36 wonderful years. We are honored to bring Linda's remaining inventory to you here. Please continue to check back in as we work to get all the scopes photographed and posted to this area. These are vintage kaleidoscopes that were on display in the store and do show signs of wear.
