Does your favorite lamp not turn on anymore? Is your portable space heater not warming up? Are you down a hot plate?

Never fear because Repair Cafe at Astoria Makers has got you covered. The waiting room was fully occupied at one point during the event this week as people came to see if their broken items could be repaired.

Lamps, waffle irons, hot plates and even a few decorative wooden boxes all received the Repair Cafe treatment and went home with the owners instead of into the trash.
