CooperaTIV Choccie!


The elves are hard at work in the Choccie Bar Studio this week as the Spring Range gets ready to make its debut at the CooperaTIV in Fore Street, Tiverton on Saturday 15th March.

The Co-operaTIV is a rather unique enterprise which brings together some of the most stunning art and craft in our regions from shabby chic furniture, original paintings in a variety of media,  to stunning photographic collections, preserves and gifts for the home.

This Saturday from 10am, Choccie Bar will be at the shop creating a few rather tasty items for hungry shoppers to sample, as an introduction very much in keeping with the welcoming and creative space for which the CooperaTIV is increasingly becoming known. Choccie Bar will then be stocking the shop with its new Spring and Easter ranges.

“It’s such a great place, which instantly feels inspiring and exciting," she says.  “This is a hub which brings together fascinating and gorgeous choice of one-off items which you would rarely see in one place on the High Street – the creators of which you actually get to meet and speak to.”

Sue Griggs of the Tiverton Portas Team, who helped to set up the CooperaTIV, is welcoming Katie's collections with open arms.

"Katie will be a welcome addition to the very popular CooperaTIV shop which has now been open for 6 months.

Dawn Chilcott, the Tiverton Portas Team Coordinator, is equally enthusiastic.

"Having Katie join the team of other budding entrepreneurs at the CooperaTIV is such a positive addition, and great timing with Mother's Day and Easter just looming. I wish her all the success she deserves, as her passion and creativity in using chocolate will surely not go unnoticed by Tiverton shoppers.

"I will certainly be ditching the diet to try her chocolate delights!"
