If you have a broken item — such as a lamp, hair dryer, toaster, clothing, a bikes furniture, toys or costume jewelry — and wish to repair it, rather than send it to the dump, the Repair Cafe is the place to go.

As a bonus, the repair work you undertake with volunteers is free of charge.

The event, a joint project of Transition Kamloops and Kamloops Makerspace, will take place on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

“Repairing is even better than recycling,” said Jennifer Ste. Marie of Transition Kamloops.

“Sometimes things which have practically nothing wrong with them, and which could easily be used again after a simple repair, get tossed. Repair Cafe wants to change that.”
