The inaugural Repair Fair is now open for registration! The Repair Fair will be Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Warhill High School.
Did your 1-year-old vacuum stop working and it is too late to return? Did the zipper on your favorite jacket break? Is the clasp on your fashion jewelry broken? The Clean County Commission is launching the first Repair Fair! To reduce what goes to the landfill – the Repair Fair, allows residents to bring lightly broken items to be fixed by local volunteers. The fair will help mend items such as clothing, jewelry, small appliances and items needing welding.
Are you interested in attending? This event is open to all James City County residents. To ensure that the proper tools and supplies are present to fix your item, please complete the Repairable Item Interest Form and provide a detailed description of the repair needed, including photos. Please note, all forms will be evaluated to determine which items can be repaired during the fair. A confirmation email will be sent for selected items with further information.
The Clean County Commission is still looking for volunteer "Fixers" to help citizens repair their salvageable items. If you have a special skill – sewing, jewelry repair, electrical, bike repair, technological, etc. and are interested in helping your neighbors, please fill out the Fixer Interest Form. Selected Fixers will receive a monetary stipend of $75 for their time, as well as lunch. Tools and supplies will be available to use onsite.
This event is free to registered participants.
The event hosts do not warrant any of the repairs, are not liable for any damage to or loss of property, and participation is at the risk of the participants.
