Where to Repair
Make it work! Buy quality items and maintain them so they last longer for you, or so you can pass them on -- maybe even sell them. Don't be so quick to buy new or replace. Repair what you have.
What is a Repair Cafe? It's a free, "pop up," volunteer-run event where you bring your broken item and learn how to fix it. Led by local volunteers Lindsey Taylor and Ariella Gastel, the Hastings Repair Café has started generating cafés in neighboring Rivertowns.
