Repairs on: jewellery, clothes, and a few electrical & electronics items only. Plus test and tagging of your electrical items like extension cords. We will have a glueing area available if you’d like to repair your own things as there isn’t a glueing fixer this time.

Where: 3 McGowan Ave, Preston

Ideas of what to bring:

  • seeds from your garden
  • seedlings
  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • herbs
  • preserves
