Pop Up Repair - Manhattan
Inwood Greenmarket
Isham St & Cooper St

Find (and give) new joy in the things you already have: break the tradition of give-receive-discard. Pop Up Repair can fix, hack, shine, polish, alter, almost anything—knives that have been getting dull, that chair you always wished was a different color, the necklace you gave her years ago but that needs a new clasp, the gloves he loves that are getting ratty. Email fixit@popuprepair.com with questions.  Learn more
