Fix It Day October 2023 (2)

get your watch repaired at the Fix-It Fair

Join us for a Fix-It Day with Transition Fidalgo volunteers who will be on site to repair objects that still have life in them: lamps, small appliances, whatever a handy person can fix! There are no charges for repairs, but donations to Transition Fidalgo are welcome. Watch batteries can be replaced for $1 for the first watch, $3 for the second watch, and $5 for each additional watch. Supplies and volunteer time are limited and on a first come, first served basis. What items should I bring to the Fix-It Fair?
