Repair Cafe

Repair Cafe Poster

Don’t you hate it when your stuff breaks?

Don’t you especially hate it when no one makes the parts anymore, or it costs more to fix than to buy a new one?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could bring it somewhere and someone could help you fix it—for free?

There is a solution: Introducing, the REPAIR CAFE!

A repair café is an event where people bring their broken gadgets – like household electrical and mechanical devices, computers, bicycles, and clothing – and learn to fix them with the help of volunteers. Repair cafés are usually held as a regular event at a fixed location where tools are available.

Repair your gadgets, save money, reduce waste, learn skills and meet neighbours—it’s a win, win, win!

We’re hosting a mini Repair Cafe with our friends from BRIM (Building Resilience in Mission) on July 6th, 10am-2pm on our front porch so come down and check it out!

P.S. Can’t make it- but think it’s a cool idea—share this with your friends and spread the word!
