Springfield's 'Fix-It-Fair' Allowed Experts to Help Fix Household Items

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Springfield's first ever 'Fix-It-Fair' came to town on Saturday.

Volunteers, including those from the Queen City Beard and Mustache Federation, opened their doors to the public in an attempt to keep broken items from building up in a landfill.

The fair held Saturday afternoon at the Midtown Carnegie Library allowed experts to help fix household items. Some of which included bikes, music boxes, and blenders.

Amanda Stadler, Fix-It Specialist  says, "People were really excited to come and get stuff fixed and I think one of the really cool components is people are learning how to get stuff fixed. So, it's really hands-on, working with the volunteers, and learning how to repair stuff so it doesn't get thrown away."

There are plans in the works to hold other fairs later this year in the months of June, September, and December.
