It’s 22 degrees in the Ann Arbor area today. My coat had a broken zipper and I was debating whether to attempt a fix or just buy a new jacket. But it is warm and fits well, and it turns out JoAnn Fabrics had heavy duty zippers in 26″ lengths.
I had to pop-off the male snaps in order to fix the zipper. I put buttons to cover the holes. A bit of nonsensical aesthetics.
$6 zipper + 1.5 hours of my time (always an existential dilemma placing a worth on my time…) = maybe $24? I am very happy to know how to manage these tasks.
