I love this: Amid the consumer hysteria and non-stop bombardment of ads for Black Friday sales came this invitation to fix something instead of replacing it with something new.
Patagonia will host a Black Friday Worn Wear Party at 4 p.m. Nov. 29.
The idea? Celebrate something you already own.
"Worn Wear," a short movie that tells the stories of eight people and the well-loved, well-used pieces of clothing that have become part of their lives, will screen at 5 and 5:30 p.m. A stash of "super-secret limited edition beer" will be unveiled, and there will be live music and food.
Most importantly, guides will lead a repair clinic to help you fix your own stuff, so bring your used Patagonia gear with you. You can also find repair guides at www.ifixit.com/patagonia.
Austin’s Patagonia store is located at 316 Congress Ave. For more information call (512) 320-8383.
