New Retailer Opens on Main Street
The 900 block of Louisville is a happening place this spring. A creative collective, Luminary, located at 924 Main Street (next to the Bronze Elk), opened its doors to the public on April 1, 2009. A wonderful addition to our eclectic downtown, the emporium will showcase the work of local artisans.
Co-owned by Jude Bea, Katie Wells, Lori Sieren and Kara Priest, Luminary will feature a quality selection of jewelry, art, and clothing. You can also find flowers for the dinner table, a toy for the little one, or maybe indulge in something sweet with a truffle or two.
Luminary plans to offer workshops and classes in the near future - stay tuned for further information. Local artisans: Luminary would love to see your work. If you are interested, please call 720-890-8204.
Marketplace Bakery Celebrates 25 Years
In 1984, a little bakery opened at 820 Main Street and quickly became a popular place to share a cup of coffee with friends, have a business meeting, get the kids a donut before school, or just have some “me time” with a good book and a hot drink. Now, 25 years later, the bakery is still a wonderful place to be from 6am to 2pm. Owners Kathy Rosser and Susan Bright, who have operated the Bakery since 2007, enjoy being a vital part of the Louisville community. The Marketplace also has a wholesale component, supplying baked goods to several local restaurants.
You can phone the Bakery at 303.666.5544.
Main Street to Debut Outdoor Dining Platforms

The platforms will provide outdoor seating for approximately 32 people. If this summer’s trial is successful, the program may be expanded in 2010.
