What should I do when my toaster goes on the blink? 99% of you would answer ‘go buy a new one’. And while these days everything can be bought, one also tends to forget that everything, or almost everything, can also be repaired. At least that’s what the organisers of the Repair Cafés will tell you, monthly gatherings of repair specialists and owners of broken appliances.

Fixing it yourself, priceless


Why throw away what you can fix? On rue du Trône, on the south side of Brussels, people whose weekend hobby is fixing things meet during the week, once a month. Seated at tables with professionals, it suddenly becomes child’s play to replace a part in an electric appliance or toy. All the tools and most commonly required materials are available on-site. After just a few minutes, the fixing session is already over. Sometimes it’s just a small matter to fix something, which produces a big smile on the faces of the participants, delighted and proud of their success. I’d almost want to break something just so I can go back again!

Any object, big or small


Anything you can think of, bring it along : your torn jeans, a shoe missing and heel, or your coffeemaker! And who knows you may just come home with a virtually new appliance… Or what about a restored bicycle? Because in addition to the repair service, Repair Café also offers various secondhand items. After all, you can’t help but applaud the work of these engaging volunteers who created the Repair Café project in September 2012.
