A vacuum cleaner, a hair straightener, a laptop, Christmas lights, an e-reader, a blender, a kettle, two bags, a pair of jeans, a remote-control helicopter, a s...poon, a dining-room chair, a lamp and hair clippers. That's a list of things mended in a single afternoon by British volunteers at a repair cafe determined to get people to stop throwing stuff away.
What a wonderful upbeat story to kick off my weekend, and I wonder where that sign is now?
The power of heartfelt words and homemade art can do wonders when it's out on the street.
Some who saw the sign wanted to help. And then an art dealer had an interesting proposal.
