A place to drink, rethink and tinker

The Bower is much more than a second-hand goods and furniture shop. It’s a co-operative workshop and resource centre, a treasure trove, a library of books, records, CDs and videos, and, this month, a café too! To mark 15 years of recycling and upcycling (everything from chairs to electric toasters and fashion accessories), the Bower is set to open Sydney’s first Repair Café. Patrons can enjoy a hot beverage while learning new skills in basic carpentry and electrical repairs, upholstery, painting, bookbinding, and so on.
