On November 19, another Repair Café Zottegem will take place. From 1.30 pm to 5 pm in restaurant Maboel in the Laurens De Metsstraat in Zottegem.
“The last editions were a huge success, probably as a result of the ongoing TV program ‘De Repairshop’”, says Piet Bogaert van Repair Café Zottegem
. “Although the name is the same, there are a number of clear differences. With us, the emphasis is on restoring consumer products and not so much on restoring valuable or precious objects that have a certain emotional charge attached to them. That is why we want to apply our own Repair café ‘house rules’ more strictly from now on (see Facebook page
). In principle, each visitor may only offer one object. A second object is also possible, but then the visitor must rejoin the queue. We charge a maximum of 45 minutes per repair. The repairers present make their own estimate of the time that will probably be needed for the repair. In this way we hope to be able to send as many people home with a satisfied feeling.”
