Philly Fixers Guild – Repair Fair #3

January 31, 2015

Free

Saturday, January 31st from 12-4pm

What We’re All About:

  • The Philly Fixers Guild holds Repair Fair events every 2-3 months at various locations around Philadelphia
  • Members of the community are welcome to bring in any item that’s broken or damaged.  This includes almost anything; even clothing and jewelry.
  • A volunteer Fixer will guide you in how to repair or mend your item.  You learn how to troubleshoot and make repairs in the process.

The primary objective of the Guild is to shift our conventional wisdom that broken items should necessarily be thrown out and replaced.  Repair Fairs are not intended to be just a free repair service.  Instead they should serve as a means to inform and educate people in troubleshooting and repair.  The eventual goal being to enable folks to repair and mend things without assistance. Ultimately, less garbage will be generated while more resources and money will be saved.
