~~~~October is Lyons Recorder’s Intro to Your Town’s Businesses Month~~~~
TK Hair Salon (moved/expanded)
The barber is Anthony Pecone and the stylist is Kelsey Pecone at TK Hair Salon. They have been doing hair since 2016. Anthony says, “We are a family run business as it is just the two of us. Our first year and a half we worked in a salon in Boulder on the hill, and in 2018 we made the switch to our house; and converted one of our rooms into a salon space. In April of 2021 we moved our salon into a commercial space right behind Mojo in the little yellow house. We raised our prices a bit from our home salon now that we are paying overhead fees but still very affordable comparatively to other salons around Boulder county.” They offer cuts, colors, and styling for all genders and ages. And, specialize in barbering blonding services (highlighting and balayage), but provide all hair coloring services. They do not provide nail or facial services. ~~ Location: 503 Second Avenue. Hours: Tuesday -Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. They are open by appointment only https://square.site/book/YFZ04KJ6TGP2V/tk-barbershop-lyons-co
Lyons Glass Gallery – NEW
When you meet Jason and Mitzi Purcell, the owners of the new Lyons Glass Gallery, you will experience a friendly couple who will fit in perfectly in Lyons’ neighborhood — they are so in tune with each other, I expect them to finish each other’s sentences. While they come from “the big city” of Denver, where they had a store on Colfax, their quality glass merchandise fits in with our small town’s existing high quality art stores. They have local Colorado hand-blown glass (also known as heady). You will find glass pipes for every day use, on up to $800 small glass sculptures and gold-infused glass goblets. They are adding art to their inventory; and will be selling digital art, both on-line as NFTs, and in-store as physical prints. NOTE: Entrance to the store is limited to those 18 years of age or older because they sell smoking accessories and cannabis-related products, including hemp based and CBD products. They do not sell tobacco products, as the state considers a tobacco product to be anything containing nicotine. Jason says, “We do consider ourselves a glass gallery and head shop.” They have had a soft opening this month, as they continue to get more stock in; which a few items may be delayed due to the shipping container problems. ~~~ Location: 402 Main Street, Unit C (corner of Main and 4th – former Red Canyon Art building). Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 12 p.m. – 8p.m.
Lyons Classic Pinball (new owner/expanded)
One of the only stores in town that is truly unique is Lyons Classic Pinball. It is the only one of its kind and size in the state, and is known throughout the U.S. (There is another one in Colorado, but their pinball machines are part of a greater entertainment venue). Back in March 2020, the business was temporarily closed due to COVID restrictions. Owners Kevin and Carole Carroll quietly celebrated 17 years in business, and a 25 year milestone marriage. After much reflection, they decided to look for new owners, and found one in August.~~ In April 2021, new owner Ryan Wanger opened up to the public, bringing in some of his own pinball games, and expanded into the space next door. There are now 52 machines, with prices ranging from 25 cents to one dollar, with most at 50 cents. Some of the machines are from the 1960/70s, on up to new ones, and the latest one is a Stern Pinball’s Godzilla, which was released this month. Ryan became infatuated with the games in is early 30s. He started buying some up and fixing them, and he also went on to play tournaments across the nation. Currently he is ranked in the Top 100 worldwide. There’s some top U.S. players that come and play here (including a #2 player who lives in Lyons — the number changes weekly! — more info to come). There are ongoing leagues and tournaments for all abilities. Check their Facebook page for the latest information. People of all ages come to play, including groups, like school kids who won prizes, birthday parties, and even Kevin comes back to play some games. ~~~ Location: 339 Main Street (next to Oskar Blues). Hours: Friday 3 – 10p.m., Saturday Noon- 10p.m., and Sunday Noon-9p.m.

Other Businesses Moved – no storefront
Bird Dog Press = Owner Allison Bozeman states that they are currently sharing studio space in the Corner Studios at 318 Main Street. (moved from 324 Main Street, next door). She does her office work from home, and prints in the studio, where her letterpress is housed.
Brian Bradley Art Gallery and Framing = Brian Bradley’s shop, located at the intersection of Highways 36 & 66, experienced a fire, and he moved out. He is currently located on 5th Avenue, but is not open to the public. He has not returned our calls for further information.
Green Goo = Jodi Scott, owner, has opened office space at 424 Main Street (Red Canyon Art building), and the business continues to make products in a warehouse on 5th Avenue in Lyons. They closed their store on Main Street; and, do not have a store front that sells their product.

Rosey’s Rescues = This is another tenant that was evicted from her Broadway St. store when the new owners of the historic hotel took over the properties. Rosey Floyd was very sad to leave Lyons after 8 great years. You can find her stall at Longmont’s Tables to Teacups – an indoor Flea Market and antique mall – 455 Weaver Park Road, #600. (And, another one in Lafayette)
Solace = Laura Levy opened this store on Main Street, which sells House Decor. We are awaiting the information she has been preparing on her product line.
