Fix your stuff at Repair Cafe

Stay tuned to this page for the next Repair Cafe at Grey Bears. Bring in your non-working small appliance, lamp, furniture item, clothing, bike, toy etc. and receive repair guidance from fix-it coaches. Do-it-together disassembly, open it up, see how it works, troubleshoot and hopefully fix it. Everyone (especially inquisitive middle school age children) invited.

Vaccinations and masking required.

Things to bring:

  • Your non-working thing (carry-in only);
  • Any tools you already own that might be helpful;
  • Any knowledge or advance research you have done on the issue; and
  • Box, bag and/or small containers for parts. Muffin tins are great for holding tiny bits and pieces while you work.

Whether you fix your item or not, you will learn more about how it was manufactured and how things work. If you are handy and can help repair, please email Rosie at Grey Bears, 831-479-1055 ext 226 or email Enjoy coffee, tea and munchies while you wait for a fix-it coach. If your item isn’t repairable we can recycle it while you check the Thrift Store and Computer Electronics Store for a replacement. Click here for answers to FAQs.
