Crystal & China Repair

July 21 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Don't throw away your cracked or chipped crystal stemware, vases, or bowls. Our visiting repair experts can make them like new again. Same with your broken china dinnerware and porcelain figurines. That includes collectibles like Hummels, Lladros, and Swarovski.

Mary Lou and Bob Gates have perfected the art of china, porcelain, and crystal repair. Bring in your chipped, broken, or cracked treasures and let our experts work their magic. Glass can't be added to or re-fired, so Mary Lou's process removes chips by grinding and buffing. Her bonding process on broken crystal, china, and porcelain ensures the item will stay intact after repairs, even with water washing.

Free Estimates. Your items will be brought back to Mary Lou's repair shop and then returned to The Little Traveler for pick up at a later date.

Services Include

  • Chip removal. It will be virtually impossible to detect where the repairs were done. 
  • Re-beveling
  • Glass polishing
  • Reshaping of spouts on pitchers
  • Reattachment of glass stems and bases
  • China and porcelain repair

During this event, you can find Mary Lou in our Gift Gallery (a/k/a the candle room). Please enter the store through our side entrance under the long yellow awning off of Fulton Street. If you can't make it in on this date, you can drop off your items in advance. Inquire in the Gift Gallery.
