Bring Your Prized Possessions Back to Life At This Pop-Up Repair Shop

In this week's installment of "Chicken Soup For The Soul Moments," old and sometimes hidden treasures can come back to life. The Pop-Up Repair Shop was opened to reduce the use-and-discard cycle of consumer goods. Run by theater artisans (the folks who bring those intricate sets to life), the shop's workers applied their skills backstage to everyday problems. Broken chairs, toys, antiques get fixed up rather than tossed out. The shop was inspired by the idea of using their artistic skills and set design background to promote sustainability.
