BRINGING ITEMS TO OUR STORE

If you have an item you would like repaired:

bulletPlease bring your item in for a free estimate.  Every damaged item we repair is unique and different, therefore we are unable to give average price estimates over the phone or through the internet.   
bulletPlease do not try to glue or temporarily fix the item yourself before bringing it in (we can still repair items that have been glued, but it saves a lot of time, work and cost if it is not).
bulletPlease bring all the pieces to the store, even extremely small pieces that you think may not be useful.

* On occasion we accept items for repair, sent to us by parcel.  If you decide to mail in your item for repairs, please make sure you wrap the pieces individually as best possible, and double box it.  Please ensure that you include your full name, address and phone number so we can contact you regarding the repairs. Please note that we do not take any responsibility for damages to or from the store during shipping.  After we receive your parcel, we will call you and provide an estimate for the repairs.  We cannot provide estimates until we see the item.
