Getting a simple https folder to call my own

Is there a hosting service that will provide me a directory to put some simple https (SSL) content without a lot of $$$ and effort?

Basically I want to drop 10 GIF files in a directory that can be accessed by an https:// URL. This would let me create customized buttons for my secure mals-e shopping cart without triggering the "unsecured content" message on browsers.
My hosting service is Dreamhost but they have a ridiculous series of hoops you have to go through just to get a simple https server, including getting a static IP and certificates. I recall years ago my old hosting service let you just switch out http with https in the URL and get the same content, which Dreamhost doesn't allow. I tried.
Again I just want to put 10 GIF images in a directory of my own and not be paying $200 and spend half the afternoon setting things up. What would be the best route for this?
