Who's Who in Benicia: Carrie Clayden

What do you do? I have a shop called in the arsenal.

How long has your shop been open in Benicia? Since January of 2010

How did you end up in Benicia? I always dreamed of having an art studio and my art teacher suggested Benicia for a studio location. 

How did you choose the arsenal? I had never even come to Benicia before so I came to explore the arsenal. I fell in love instantly. I started out with my art studio for about six months. Then I decided to do it as a store and an art studio where I could make my art, sell art and all my treasures.

What do you do for fun? I always run around in a tutu and I keep a photo portfolio of girls in their tutus. I hunt for treasure. I make things. I love to create. I always like be learning how to create new things.

What else? I have a husband and children. My son is 19, he's a sophomore in college. My daughter is 15 and still in high school so I still do the parent thing.

What are your favorite places in Benicia? I like . I like some of the shops like , .

What do you love about this town? I really like the downtown vibe. I like how relaxed it is.
