Halle's Gallery marks first anniversary in Trinity

Halle's celebrates its first anniversary

Halle's Gallery at 9040 Tryfon Blvd. in Trinity is celebrating its first anniversary in west Pasco. Halle's was located on Main Street in Dunedin at the Cherry Gift Gallery.

Paul and Carolyn Halle said their gallery is a gathering place full of curious offerings to entice and delight. Stroll through the library and pick your favorite book to read in the "husband chair."

Wander through the apothecary and savor the wonderful scents of home fragrance, and exclusive bath and body. Become inspired by the unique and beautiful home decor.

The store changes each season with gifts and accessories that bring childhood memories and family traditions alive. Halle's is traditional and classic, but by no means ordinary.

The store is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For information, visit
