In the Spotlight - The Bean Bag


The Bean Bag has been a part of Gatesville for as long as many of us can remember.  They are celebrating their 40th anniversary this week.  Jeannie Williams has owned and operated the Bean Bag for 33 years, having taken over 7 years after it was open.  Jeannie and The Bean Bag offers women's clothing, Merle Norman Cosmetics, gifts, home decor (such as Brighten), jewelry, accessories, and gift wrapping.  The Bean Bag moved into their new location in 1999, sharing their building with Jeannie's sister-in-law Hollie Williams and the Instyle Beauty Salon. Jeannie would like to thank all of her customers for 40 years of support and invite everyone to come take a look at her beautiful inventory.  Congratulations to Jeannie Williams and The Bean Bag on 40 years of business.
