Pictures of Southern Living Realty and Connally Street Gallery
Before the holidays, we had a business after hours and grand opening for Southern Living Realty and Connally Street Gallery and somehow, I never got their pictures in the paper. If you have not been in the gallery, you need to stop by on 220 Connally Street and see all of the beautiful artwork on display by local artists. Owners Mike and Pam Elliot invite you to stop by to see the gallery and if you have any real estate needs, they can help you with all of your needs.
Are your business cards and brochures on display at the Chamber of Commerce?
If you are a member of the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce, we will gladly display your business cards or brochures in our office so that all of our visitors may see them. If you would like more information, call us at 903-885-6515 or just drop them off at our office at 300 Connally Street.
