With the holiday retail season upon us, The Arc of Rock Island County announces it is currently accepting new consignments from area artists for The Arc’s One of a Kind shop.

One of a Kind sells unique handmade gifts made by local artisans. Products include jewelry, paintings, weavings, carved walking sticks, candles, soaps and lotions, and many other unique gift options.

Consigning artists set the retail price and receive 75% of the sale price. The Arc retains 25% which supports programming, developmental training, and wages for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. One of a Kind provides paid employment opportunities for individuals in a retail setting. Individuals are trained and involved in all aspects of store operations–creating original artwork, cashiering, maintaining displays, inventory control, and customer service.

One of a Kind is located at 4016 9th Street in Rock Island.

Hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4:30 pm.

Founded in 1952, The Arc of Rock Island County promotes living and working in partnership with the community to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. The Arc serves more than 325 individuals throughout the Quad Cities community on a daily basis.
