Eagles's Nest Wood and Pottery is actually still in the process of renovating and setting up, but they're open at the new location, just across the street from the former location.

The new site gives them triple the workspace and double the display area. EaglesNest provides workspace and equipment for artisans and hobbyists to create and if they like, display space to sell their creations.

They also carry pottery supplies, which is something I'm told is very hard to find around here.

Find out more about EaglesNest Wood and Pottery by visiting their Facebook page. You can also call them at (719) 646-2222 or go check out the new shop at 355 Main Street in Security. They're open from 8am to 8pm, Monday through Saturday.

The Indoor Flea Market is open for business. They had their soft opening today. What does that mean? Well, vendors are still getting set up, signage still needs to be put up, there’s still some work to do, but while the finishing touches are being put on, you can still come in and shop.

The 22,000 square foot store features dozens of vendors offering everything from tools, collectibles, clothing to antiques, video games, furniture and all kinds of other treasures.

They’re open from 10am to 6pm, 7 days a week. There are still some spaces available for vendors, but they’re going fast. You’ll find them at Widefield Square (Fontaine and Widefield Blvd), 20 Widefield Blvd, next to the Dollar General. You can reach them at 719-219-1898 and check them out on Facebook.

The grand opening will take place September 12.

Sandie Comstock's Ink Fountain Printing has been a fixture in the City of Fountain's small business community for almost 40 years. Now Sandie and her husband have decided it's time to fulfill their dream of building that home in the mountains and enjoying retirement. While the business is still going strong, they've put it off for long enough she says. Construction is already underway.

Sandie says she understands the business is a valuable neighborhood resource and is looking to get it into the hands of a willing and able entrepreneur who wants to continue to serve the community while pursuing their own dream.

Ink Fountain is more than just printing though. They also offer schools supplies, office supplies, craft supplies, greeting cards, gifts and other merchandise as well as fax service, shipping, scanning and more.

Sandie hasn't set a date yet for making the move, but if you haven't been to Ink Fountain in a while, pop in and say hello and congratulations on retirement.

If you're interested in owning the business, give Sandie a call at 719-382-8721. Serious inquiries only please.

A new Holiday Inn Express is under construction at the South Academy Highlands in Fountain, Colorado.

South Academy Highlands is the new portion of Venetucci Blvd, just off S. Academy, directly across from Pikes Peak Community College.

Over the coming months, the new section of Venetucci Blvd will be connected to the rest of Venetucci Blvd, near B. Street. That project is also underway.
