What mother and daughter duo doesn’t like to shop for shoes together? Valencia’s in Bowling Green has a plethora of high quality shoes at affordable prices for women and young girls alike. Andrea Wagner, a teacher at Leipsic Local Schools, opened the store in early spring with an official ribbon cutting ceremony in May. As a child, Andrea grew up with hand me downs and what she refers to as “garage sale shoes.” Once she was old enough to purchase shoes of her own, she became an all out shoe fanatic. However, she found that quality shoes were usually pricey. Andrea dreamed of opening a store that would have an eclectic variety of shoes that anyone could afford. As a Bowling Green State University graduate herself, she knew BG would be the perfect fit for her store as many of the local residents support local businesses. Valencia’s Shoes has been welcomed to Main Street by the community. Not only does Valencia’s offer shoes but also a variety of jewelry and trendy infinity scarves. This fall, she will offer men and boys shoes for the start of the school season. -GG
