Adventures in the New River Valley: Repair Café

by Desi Sowers

The Habitat ReStore in Christiansburg is hosting a repair café on Saturday, October 14th 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  Do you have broken items lying around the house?  Don’t want to have to replace the item?  This event is a place where you can bring the broken item in to be fixed by people skilled in fixing such items.  They are a lot of fun and serve to help the community resist the throwaway economy.

Since this is the first of this kind of event, repairs will be limited to; Small Appliances, Sewing, Furniture, IT help and knife sharpening.  If the item cannot be repaired they will try and diagnose and make recommendations on where to get the item repaired. 

There will also be a repair fair in the parking lot to help people learn how to do some basic home improvements to make their homes more sustainable.
