The city of Dana Point has named Woody Hut the Business of the Month for January 2015.
After managing Hallmark stores for over 15 years Christa Scholottmann purchased Woody Hut on September 30, 2008.
Christa always wanted to own her own store and when she found out a little shop was up for sale in Dana Point she knew she couldn’t pass it up.
Upon purchasing it she realized it didn’t have that fun-loving beach atmosphere she envisioned, so Christa and her husband, Boots Balson, completely renovated the store’s looks and its merchandise.
They added more color and liveliness to the store and also brought in items from local artists.
With help from her husband, Christa brought in quality woodie car and nostalgic surf inspired gifts, apparel, décor and jewelry.
The store currently carries a wide array of beach-themed gifts with a Dana Point twist, including T-shirts, signs, sunglasses, jewelry, sandals and more.”
With all the great items for sale, Christa says the jewelry really stands out because it is all sterling silver, brought over from Hawaii, very hard to find on the mainland, and best of all, reasonably priced.
The great items that Woody Hut carries, along with the personal customer service they offer, has made it a go-to place in the Dana Point Harbor for gifts and memorabilia.
