One of A Kind

One of a Kind is a vibrant furniture up-cycling charity & social enterprise, creating opportunities for volunteering and work.

At its heart is our commitment to sustainability – up-cycling old unwanted furniture or working with materials either donated or reclaimed from the local area.

One of a Kind was set up in the Summer 2013 at our Merlin’s Bridge site. As part of Pembrokeshire FRAME One of a Kind gives opportunities to people with disabilities in furniture painting.

Participants and Volunteers become One of A Kind Team Members and get involved in upcycling furniture in our One of A Kind studio. They learn all techniques from beginner to advanced level on how to select, prepare and paint furniture, so that they can put the Chic into Shabby! Participants all take part in our personal development planning sessions to help them identify their goals, establish what they want to achieve and to record their progress. You will find unique One of a kind pieces available for sale in our Merlin’s Bridge and Pembroke Dock shops or you can purchase them from our online shop.
