Repair Drop Off Day at High Energy Vintage


I took a hiatus from offering repairs to focus on other things, but during this quieter winter season I find myself with a bit of time to devote to requests for mends! Let me help you with that broken garment that's languishing in your closet! I'm testing out a monthly repair drop off day at High Energy Vintage, where you can drop off your garments in need of repair, and then pick them up at the following drop off day. To begin, I'm offering drop off on the following three dates: Sunday, February 4th, Sunday, March 3rd, and Sunday, April 7th. Both visible and invisible repair options will be available depending on your needs. Find all of the info about how drop off days will work here!


 Or go the DIY route and learn to mend your own clothes by taking a workshop with me!
