Board of County Commissioners weekly agenda for May 20-24, 2019
The Ten Spot II awarded the March Spotlight on Local Business Award
A local gift shop open seven days a week offering handmade products from around the world sells all their products for under $10. The Ten Spot II offers a wide variety of creative products, including fashion accessories, knick-knacks and all-natural food products.
The unique shop was founded in June 2009 after inspiration from the original The Ten Spot in Manitou Springs. Owner and founder Stefanie Baca felt that Pueblo would benefit from additional retail businesses and decided to start up The Ten Spot II. Nine years later, it continues to add commercial and artistic value to the community.
The Ten Spot II, located at 125 S. Union Avenue in the Pueblo Creative Corridor, was recognized as the recipient of the Pueblo Buy Local Advisory Board's March Spotlight on Local Business award at a Pueblo Board of County Commissioners’ meeting on Wednesday, March 21, 2018.
The Ten Spot II partners often with South High School by donating gift certificates and sponsoring several of the high school athletic and arts programs. They also prioritize community involvement by being a part of Pueblo’s Downtown Association, where they participate in offering discounts for the community through their activities and events.
The Spotlight on Local Business Award program was launched in July 2017 by the Pueblo County Buy Local Advisory Board with the goal of bringing awareness of the diverse retail and service companies that the community has to choose from when making buying decisions.
The Buy Local Advisory Board randomly chose the March Spotlight on Local Business winner. Names of the previous nominees were also included in March’s drawing.
The Buy Local Advisory Board has a continual nomination process; applications will be accepted at any time. Nominations can be made by independent businesses themselves or on behalf of an independent business at www.pueblocounty.us/buy-local.
