Sconnie Nation of Madison, Wisconsin celebrates the Wisconsin lifestyle by designing Wisconsin themed apparel. The company began in a dorm room at the University of Wisconsin-Madison when Ben Fiechtner and Troy Vosseller decided to create a line of whimsical Wisconsin t-shirts. “I’m excited to work with my fellow Badger entrepreneurs at Sconnie Nation,” says Wisconsinmade.com owner and UW-Madison alum Linda Remeschatis.”Wisconsinmade.com and Sconnie Nation share a similar goal, to spread Wisconsin pride nationwide.”
What is a Sconnie?
The word Sconnie can be an noun or an adjective describing someone or something from Wisconsin.
