Or Fix-it Fairs or Repair Fairs, are free community gatherings in which people with repair skills share their time and talents to fix their neighbors’ belongings.

Tool Libraries

Think of a tool library like a book library…except for tools (and often, other really useful things)! With tool libraries, you just borrow it when you need it and return it when you’re done.

Makerspaces

Or fab labs, techshops, or hackerspaces, are collaborative workspaces focusing on open source applications. They give access to technology and tools including 3D printers, laser cutters, etc.

“Far from solely repairing shoes, Mr. Henry restores handbags, luggage, hockey pads, jackets, and other custom pieces. He might not be getting rich, but he loves a job well done and seeing his customers beam when they realize his craftsmanship has brought their items back to life.”
