Blair Scott and Liz Scott

What once was a modern paper boutique...

then morphed into a curated subscription service of the finest paper goods and gifts from across the country and the globe, and is now hmmmmm, a journey?! While Lovely Somethings was once Liz's whole world, her husband, Blair, founded Akron Candle Company. Now the two are working on building his business, comprised of the best hand-poured soy wax candles featuring Akron's blimp, selling directly at AkronCandleCompany.com and at other local shops. Liz and Blair were married in October of 2013 and moved that same month to a home in charming Bath, Ohio, from which has sprung many ideas, a couple of companies, one cat (Neo) and two pups (Wheaten Terrier: Quinn & Silver Labrador Retriever: Piper).

LIZ SCOTT - Owner : Lovely Somethings

Akron born and bred. A graduate of Kent State University's competitive Visual Communication Design program and previously studying Photojournalism at Ohio University, Liz founded her corporate graphic design company, Immix Studio, in 2004, with friends, as well as Rubber City Clothing. Through Immix, Liz continued to work with some of the area's favorite brands, like Don Drumm Studios & Gallery, Swensons, Acme, and the Cleveland Clinic. In 2009, Liz created the brand Lovely Somethings after she began designing her friends' wedding invitations years prior and in October 2014, the loveliness came to full fruition as the Lovely Somethings storefront opened in Bath, Ohio. The storefront shuttered in December of 2019, she retired from weddings in September of 2020 and closed Immix in December of 2020, but Troop Lovely Somethings lives on! And Liz is still very involved in local, small businesses as she is the Marketing Director of Don Drumm Studios.

BLAIR SCOTT - Owner : Akron Candle Company

Blair is a Cleveland boy, that has gratefully adopted Akron and our devil strips. Hailing from Shaker Heights, Blair attended the Frost School of Music at The University of Miami (Florida), majoring in music engineering. Blair's trombone has been resting as he rises the ranks of the Cleveland tech community, enjoying programming for Search Discovery. The idea for Akron Candle Company (ACC) came to him the summer of 2017 when he and Liz were traveling through upstate New York, stopping in shops and brainstorming ideas for Lovely Somethings. Blair found himself intrigued by the idea of creating a physical product and declared “I’m going to make candles!” So simple, right?! When he isn't in front of his laptop or inventing new scents for ACC, he will most definitely be at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse, cheering on his true love, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
