No one will ever know for sure; however, being born in French Canada, Montreal – Quebec province to Italian parents just might
have had something to do with creating the beautiful and sophisticated style that exudes from Bena Slavin. Her great love of art, design
and antiques has been a driving force always keeping her advancing in knowledge of antiques and all things creative.
Her business, Bena’s Treasures, not only can boast a plethora of unique object d’arte but also furniture, original art pieces
and garden accents to name just a few categories. Did she stop there, No way! Bena is quite an artist and has created some of the most
beautiful hand painted china dolls available. She is also an expert in estate sales and is often on appointments to appraise and give
her expert advice.
Through-out her fascinating career, Bena also owned and operated a full service dining restaurant in Las Vegas, Nevada. Naturally,
it was Italian cuisine.
As a teenager, her family moved to Los Angeles and it did not take long for Bena to be discovered by the famed Caroline
Leonetti School of fashion and modeling.
A few years later, Bena decided the fashion industry was not where she wanted to make her career. So, after completing her studies she
was ready to tackle the antique and art world where she has resided ever since.
Married to a professional golfer she and her husband have lived in several well-known golf communities and eleven years ago they settled
in Fallbook and that has been home ever since.
Bena has two grown children and one grandchild. She is active in the Bonsall Chamber of Commerce and the Bonsall Woman’s Club.
