Sweet Suds Bath Boutique owner Autumn Lewis loves to take baths and bake. Following her passions, she launched the confectionery-inspired bath boutique last December in a tiny red cottage a stone’s throw from her home in historic Ellicott City. Walk-in business has boomed.
Already in the process of expanding and moving, Lewis expects to unveil a new location a few blocks away at 8026 Main St. around the end of this month. By the end of summer, she plans to offer her novelty products — featuring more than 50 scents and costing about $5-$25 — online. “It’s like this was meant to be,” she says.
From the time the readers’ poll launches in August to the issue’s delivery in December, businesses, nonprofits and readers alike are abuzz in anticipation of who might take home the coveted Best of Howard County title.
