The Worn Wear Wagon makes a stop at the U of O

The brand was irrelevant and you could have one item repaired for free – a great deal. They are here for a sustainability conference being put on by the business college and from what I could tell their work today will be a hit.

Light tour 2015

More on the lines below and the lovely film in the post below at this site.
