Friends of the Bedford Council on Aging ~~ FBCOA Fix-it Shop

What if you had a repair person at your fingertips?  What if that repair person promised high-quality service at ridiculously low costs?  What if that repair person was trustworthy and skilled at their craft?  Would you take advantage of it?  Well, we actually have this service right here in Bedford.

The Friends of the Bedford Council on Aging (FBCOA) Fix-It Shop can fix almost everything (except electronics).

The Fix-It Shop is a group of capable volunteers who take pride in their work. The FBCOA Fix-It Shop is open to all—from Bedford and any other town, and people of any age.  The prices cannot be beaten anywhere!

They have repaired a microwave, a fax machine, a sewing machine, and Roomba. Here are some of the other mechanical things they routinely fix:

  • watch batteries for only $5
  • clocks: wall, mantel, anniversary
  • lamps, vacuum cleaners, remote controls, radio/CD players etc.
  • small appliances such as coffee makers, blenders, toasters, fans, and humidifiers.
  • stubborn switches, such as on a microwave door
  • sharpen knives, scissors, and garden tools
  • re-glue tables and chairs, and broken ceramic items
  • Return sound and lights to children’s toys


The minimum charge is $3. The shop stocks many standard parts. Anything requiring extensive labor or special-order parts will be done only after prior customer approval.

All proceeds benefit the FBCOA (Friends of the Bedford Council on Aging).
Open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.  For the first time this year, we will remain open in July and August.
Find us upstairs at Town Center (the yellow building behind Town Hall),  12 Mudge Way Bedford, MA 01730
