It’s January! That might be a synonym for nostalgia, resolutions, and fresh starts. It’s also the month of Janus, who famously looks forward and backward. In true Janus style, we’re reflecting on 2018 with in One Of A Kind fashion. Some of our memories include:
Redline Metals, a metals recycler headquartered in Lombard, Illinois, recently presented One Of A Kind commemorative art to Founder Cynthia Wong-Williams on the 25th anniversary. Cindy started Redline as the second woman-owned Scrap Dealer. The company is still one of only a few scrap companies owned by women.
Lawrence Romorini recently collaborated with Sandy Spring Bank, headquartered in Olney, Maryland since 1868, to commemorate their sesquicentennial with One Of A Kind 3-dimensional art.

In true democratic spirit, the new savings institution opened its doors to every member of the community, rich and poor, black and white, male and female alike.
