One Ace store in California is hosting Repair Cafe weekends, where residents bring in their broken stuff and Ace helps facilitate fixes. "Peer-to-peer commerce tends to be direct, emotionally satisfying, personal, green and have a very 'now' quality about it -- all catnip for brands hungry for more intimate connections with consumers," Joan Voight writes.
