First Friday of November 2015

“Driftless Mama” is a new business based in Dodgeville Wisconsin that produces organic body care products, lightly scented with local flowers and herbs.  Join us on Friday evening, the 6th of November to meet the owners of this new venture and try their products.  Their high quality products impressed everyone at Convivio, and we believe they will inspire you to begin your holiday gift shopping!

We’ll also be sampling Pleasant Ridge Reserve cheese, and wines that pair well with it, to help you plan your holiday gatherings.

Please join us!driftlessmama

New die cut cards

Three new styles of our favorite die cut, tri-fold greeting cards have arrived.  Foxes, owls and birds are the 3 new styles.  Besides being a fresh way to send a greeting to a friend, they are a nice adornment to a mantle or table.


Firefly mugs.


Our favorite copper French Press is a great contrast to the black background of these graphic mugs.  Coffee tastes better at a table in the trees


Spring Green Mugs!

We LOVE Spring Green, and to show our love we had a custom mug made!  They’re $15 and selling quickly.  Give us a call and we’ll hold one for you.

Two favorite Fall products.


Coffee is important to us, but the pot it’s made in and the vessels that we drink it out of are just as important.  Polka dot mugs from Portugal make us smile on chilly Autumn mornings.  Definitely large enough to keep both hands warm, they also are perfect for serving soup or chili.  The copper French press is so beautiful! And it makes delicious, rich coffee.

If you’re interested in purchasing these items give us a call at the store: 608.588.2351.  We’d be happy to ship them to you, or wrap and ship gifts to your family or friends.

Roots Chocolates!

Lisa Nelson, the Chief Chocolate officer of Roots Chocolates, crafts her beautiful and delicious confections at her kitchen on her Wisconsin Dells farm, often using ingredients that she grows on the farm herself.  Convivio is so excited to announce that we now have 4 piece boxes of her truffles.  AND she will be joining us for the First Friday of June for a chocolate and wine sampling.  Join us on June 5th, from 5 – 8 pm.
