National Ornamental Metal Museum Repair Days Weekend--Memphis, TN
October 13, 14, and 15, 2006
If it ain't busted, don't bring it...
Bring your dull, dented, dysfunctional metal items to Repair Days at the National Ornamental Metal Museum. Metalsmiths from across the country will be there to solder, sharpen, remove dents, re-tin copper cookware, and repair garden furniture and statuary. They will sharpen knives, scissors, garden tools and lawnmower blades. They can even straighten out that spoon that was mangled in the disposal. Estimates are free. All proceeds from repair work benefit the Museum. See your items repaired: At each of the repair stations, metalsmiths will be on hand to explain the repair process and answer questions.
