The Sand Springs Chamber of Commerce has been cutting a lot of ribbons this month, including at two new businesses downtown.
Noble Axe, an axe-throwing entertainment venue at 216 N. Lincoln Ave., opened July 30 but celebrated its chamber membership Nov. 9.
Brad Janes named his business after his son, Noble Janes, and father and son cut the congratulatory ribbon not with scissors but — what else — axes.
Hours for Noble Axe are 4-8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; 4-11 p.m. Friday; noon to 11 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday.
This past week brought the grand opening of the Big Dipper Creamery at 120 N. Main St.
The shop, which offers handmade artisanal ice cream using locally sourced ingredients, opened its Mother Road Market location in Tulsa in 2018, but the Sand Springs site will also serve as a production facility.
Owners and operators Sami and Brian Cooper are third-generation food entrepreneurs in Sand Springs.
Hours for Big Dipper Creamery are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
A ribbon-cutting was held Saturday to mark the chamber membership of Agitsi Stained Glass, 3417 S. 113th West Ave., Suite B3.
Brandi Hines opened her Prattville shop in the spring of 2020 and was a first-time vendor this past spring at Herbal Affair.
She not only sells supplies for making stained glass and teaches the craft to adults and youths but also has retail space for her own works and other authentic Native American art created by TERO-certified Cherokee artisans.
Hours for Agitsi Stained Glass are 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday and Friday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday plus Saturday.
