Being able to repair items helps reduce waste and save money. I’ve learnt to look into the repairability of items before I purchase them and I’m learning how to fix things, but sometimes I need help from an expert. I think part of the reason people don’t get their items repaired is because they can’t find the right people or businesses to do it. This page lists businesses I have found that are able to repair household and personal items. The page has been arranged alphabetically by township to make finding your local businesses easier and then alphabetically by business name. I will continue to add to this resource as I discover new places and I encourage everyone to share their own discoveries in the comments at the bottom. This way it can become a more comprehensive resource for people all across Gippsland.

Also, don’t forget to check your local community house for courses on mending and repairing things like clothing, sewing machines, bicycles and more.
