I’m a big fixer. I fix things. All sorts of things. Cars, computers, camping gear, I always try to fix something before getting rid of it. I recently found the Fixers Collective and I’m in love with the idea and wish it was in my area.
From their site:
Fixers’ Collective is a social experiment in improvisational fixing and mending
They get together each week and teach/help others fix their items. How great is that? I love the idea of teaching others the lost art of fixing. Today everyone throws away their stuff just to replace it when they could be saving a lot of $$$ to simply fix the item. This keeps these items out of the landfills and money in your pocket. Brilliant. If you are in the NY area, do check them out.
