A balding and bearded older fellow named Joe Calloway had a little shop near Progress Street in which he created jewelry and leather goods, as well as other creations that he learned to make as a young boy growing up in India.
Joe was a resident of Blacksburg for many years, and in 1976 he packed his bags and went to Colorado. I heard a rumor recently that Joe may have perished in a swimming accident. I hope it's not true.
My wife still has a leather hair piece that Joe made in the early 1970's, and she cherishes it.
