Cville TimeBank Repair Cafe

Don't toss it – FIX it!

Toss it? No Way! FIX IT!

At a Repair Café, folks bring their broken stuff to be repaired by volunteers for free. It’s a fun, friendly way to keep perfectly good stuff out of the landfill and spend some quality time together as a community.

Don’t toss it. FIX it!


Chairs. Fans. Lamps. Toasters. Bikes. In the Charlottesville area, these are the things most likely to end up in the trash when they break. Let’s make them useful again!

Cville TimeBank Repair Café
will return to The Habitat Store March 17, 2018, 12-4pm

It’s the Repairin’ of the Green! Actually, we’ll fix any color of broken stuff, if we can, for free! Bring us your chairs, lamps, bikes, clothing, toasters, fans and other broken and torn stuff and let our trusty volunteer fixers take a stab at saving them. It’s green to fix things—so this St. Paddy’s day, follow the rainbow to The Habitat Store on Harris Street. Fixing instead of tossing can save a pot of gold—and help save the earth.

Bring up to 3 things for FREE repair by volunteer fixers.
Small appliances – Clothing – Jewelry – Bikes – Toys – Other household items
Explore what’s inside our stuff at the Take-Apart Table
Learn simple repairs in the DIY Lamp Workshop (all day)

The Habitat Store is located at 1221 Harris Street, Charlottesville 22903.

Cville TimeBank Repair Café is a totally free community event, open to everyone.
