The Fix is In

The Desmond-Fish Library on June 15 hosted a “repair cafe” at the Cold Spring Farmers’ Market staffed by volunteer specialists. Thirty-nine objects were presented by 27 people, and 32 were repaired. The list included a ceramic music box, a sewing machine, lamps, a lampshade, jewelry, an electric bubble blower, toasters, an umbrella, clothing in need of mending or buttons, a backpack and a child’s wooden chair.

  1. So nice to see all such antique items getting a new life, especially the music box. Reminds me of my own music box by Music Box Attic that is one of the precious things I ever owned.
