Locals! Please come see us this Saturday, the First of April (no fooling) at Johan’s Jöe, our favorite Swedish coffee house, for the Johan’s / Convivio Spring Market. Johan’s will have springtime treats like semlor, the delicious cream-filled buns of Sweden made only during Lent, along with the best coffee in Downtown West Palm Beach (or maybe anywhere), and all their other wonderful offerings. We’ll be there with all of our handmade artisan goods for Easter and springtime from Germany, Sweden, and Ukraine, plus German chocolates, candies, and marzipan, my mom’s hand-embroidered tea towels, and who knows what else.
Official hours for the Spring Market are 9 AM to 3 PM, though I plan to be there in time for Johan’s 7:00 opening time and at the end of the day, I’ll be packing up from 3 to 4… so there is some flexibility in those hours. We’d love to see you, so please come by! German wooden bunnies, pyramids and incense smokers with bunnies, handmade candles from Sweden, real egg pysanky from Ukraine and hand carved crosses from there, too. As for the semlor, as I understand it Johan’s just serves them on Saturdays and they only make so many and once they’re gone, they’re gone (so maybe get there early!).
For all you folks who are not here, you may peruse our springtime (and other) offerings at our online catalog, and when you order online you also can take advantage of our online springtime special: Use discount code BUNNY at checkout for $10 off your order of $85 or more, plus get FREE domestic shipping.

Johan’s Jöe is at 401 South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. It’s the southwest corner of Fern Street and Dixie, and if you approach from the east on Fern, from Flagler Boulevard, you’ll get to see some of my favorite local murals. My suggestion? Make a day of it: Visit the wonderful West Palm Beach Green Market first, then come to Johan’s for coffee and Convivio shopping. We can help fill your Easter basket with the most unusual things!
Your Convivio Book of Days calendar for the month of April will be a little late! Maybe that is my All Fools Day prank on you. I promise to get the new calendar to you as soon as I can.
