Carrie purchased the Silver Bee from the original owners at the beginning of 2021 and brings with her over 20 years of experience in advertising, marketing and business management. She also spent many years making custom draperies and soft home furnishings, so as a maker herself, it’s important to her to support the local artisan community. She has been married to Bo for over 23 years and they have two children–Ty (studying aerospace engineering at Texas A&M) and Hannah (student at Friendswood HighSchool). They also have a doggo named Bear and two kitty cats Lark & Meadow. Carrie & Bo love living in Friendswood and giving back to their community. Carrie adores the people at the Bee and loves serving our customers. Her favorite time of year is Fall and Christmas and loves seeing how the store transforms during that time.
