Each year From time to time, the Inner Sunset Park Neighbors hold a “Fix-It” fair, offering free repairs. They have professionals volunteering to fix any small thing you bring along.
[ETA: A clarification from Barbara — actually, two:
” Thanks for your fast action; I certainly appreciate it…and the charming clip-art.
“I would like to point out that it’s not necessarily ‘any
small thing,’ as many have brought us large furniture, chairs, benches, tall lamps, etc. to fix; it’s quite remarkable. Additionally, we’ve now done this four times in a year…. it seems to be happening quarterly, for which I’m very grateful to our volunteers. Last January, we repaired around 160 items. Not bad, eh?”]
