Employee Spotlight: Macey

Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Macey. I am fifteen and I go to Jefferson High School here in Lafayette where I’ve lived my whole life.  My favorite color is pink, and I love to sing and dance.


What is your job at Antique Candle Works?

I started as a Candle Maker here about a month ago. I wick and label candles, and help with pouring and production.


What do you like to do?

In my spare time, I like to hang out with my friends. We like to go to the mall or go see a movie.  I also really enjoy cooking.  I love to bake desserts such as cookies which are easy and always taste good!


Where is your favorite place to grab some grub?

That would probably Texas Roadhouse—my favorite things to get there are their steak kabobs and mashed potatoes. I swear they have the best mashed potatoes!


What is your favorite Bible verse?

Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
I love this verse just because I am still growing up and figuring out what I want to do.  I am excited to find out what God’s plan for me is in the future and what path He will lead me on.


What is your favorite book?

I really like The Fault in Our Stars. Also Divergent, that was a good book, too.


What is something most people don't know about you?

I have two different colored eyes. One Brown and one green. A lot of people don’t know that.  I am also really outgoing but also really shy.


You are happiest when...?

...I’m on vacation, like in Florida. I love Treasure Island.  I love the beach and that’s when I am super happy.  I usually lay out and then go out in the water for a lot of the time.



What part of working at Antique Candle Works do you enjoy most?

I would say probably actually making the candles. I enjoy using the fragrances and pouring them, the whole production process.


What are some of your life goals?

I eventually want to pursue a career in becoming a beautician. Of course, unless the Lord pulls me into a different direction.  But I’d like to own my own business in a salon.  Right now, I practice hair and makeup on my friends and would like to pursue that if I can.


We play a lot of music in the studio, so what kind of music do you like?

The genre I like would be country.  I really like Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, and Lady Antebellum. 



What is your favorite fragrance at Antique Candle Works?

I love Southern Hospitality. It has a sweet, but not super sweet smell to it that I really enjoy.


What is your favorite thing about Lafayette, Indiana?

I love the fact that there is so much to do. There are so many things to do for fun and to stay occupied, which is really cool.  One of my favorite hotspots is the Arrowhead bowling alley.
