Before we lived in a throw it away world, we had small businesses all over the USA called Fix-It-Shops. Anyone recall those place? Things like a Toster, Lawn Mover, Small or large applicants could be taken there, and made like new or repaired to working order for a small fee. My first 26" Bicycle was apprently rescued from someone trash, my mother dropped it off at a Fix-It-Shop the thing was stripped, rep;aired, regreased. Repainted UGLY GREEN & WHITE. Made like new for what she could afford for a birthday present. Bike was prized pocession for many years, it was like what today we call RECYCLING. Not as New Idea.
