As if 2020 wasn't hard enough, in May a tornado hit Bowie, Texas.  It hit it hard.  Several shops were a total loss and several of them have not recovered.  It is with the community's delight that La Belle Vintage Mall has made it through.  They re-opened and have several wonderful vendors offering a wide variety of vintage items.  Definitely worth your time.  You never know what treasure you might find!
