Charles Hughes, His Work to Be Subject of May TAGHS Meeting

May 13, 2017 - Charles Hughes's shoe shop was a fixture in Timpson for many years. A Timpson native, Mr. Hughes spent most of his life here doing what he loved best: working with leather. He would half sole and heel your Thom McAn shoes or Tony Llama boots, even re-build your saddle, but his real love was creating hand-tooled leather goods. His skill was widely respected and admired.

Though he closed his shop over ten years ago and he, himself, died in 2009, Mr. Hughes lives on through his surviving work. The Timpson Area Genealogical and Heritage Society invites the public to remember Mr. Hughes at their May meeting next Wednesday and view examples of his work which will be on display.

TAGHS meets at 2PM on third Wednesday of each month in the Timpson Public Library on the corner of Austin and Bremond Streets in downtown Timpson. The public is always welcome.
