WHAT DO WE FIX?
We fix lamps, chairs, small appliances, ceramics, jewelry, toys, clothing and more.
In fact, we fix so much, it's probably faster if we tell you what we can't repair...
What don't we fix?
Antique clocks (note: we can replace black plastic mechanism on the back of some clocks, so if clock has that, we can repair)
Cassette players/boom boxes
Digital (phones, laptops, etc.)
Silver soldering (e.g. teapots)
Very valuable or heirloom jewelry
If you have a question about a specific broken item, shoot us an email with a photograph of the object and a description of the problem and we'll let you know if it seems fixable.
Items fall into 4 price categories:
- Small, $20-$40
- Medium, $40-$75
- Large, $75-$150
- X Large, $150+
Prices do not include sales tax and all payments will be made online. We accept bank payments and most credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
This list is a guideline only – we will look at your item and make an more exact estimate once you drop it off. Every object breaks in a different way!
Lamps: usually Medium including parts – for standard parts
Jewelry: Small for simple fixes up to Large for a complex restringing
Appliances: usually Medium and up, plus parts (includes $20 diagnostic fee)
Furniture: from Medium for minor repair/reinforcement to Large and X Large for bigger jobs
Toys: these vary widely, starting at Small for simple fixes
Clothing and textiles: Small to Medium, depending on degree of complexity
Miscellaneous: Bring it on! We love a challenge. Some of our favorites: pepper mill, suitcase, bird sculpture, photo album, colander, stuffed lobster, baghavad gita, gelato machine, etc.!
FOR APPLIANCES AND ELECTRONICS: We charge a diagnostic fee ($20), as it can take some time to open things up and figure out what is wrong. If we can fix it, the fee goes towards the price of the repair. If we can’t, we will dispose of it responsibly for you.
Please bring any cords or chargers.
Please DON’T bring lampshades if they are not necessary for the repair.
