SoHa Living, based in Hawaii, has opened its first shop in San Diego County. The 1,700 square foot store is at The Shoppes at Carlsbad and sells a mix of home and gift items inspired by the Hawaiian islands, according to a news release. The location will also be used as a mainland manufacturing hub.

"We also love Carlsbad's unique beach town feel, reminiscent of vintage California surf days," said SoHa Living co-owner Shyrah Maurer. "Combined with great access and location coupled with the fact the mall serves a large number of military families, we knew this was a perfect spot for us."

Founded in 2002, SoHa Living has stores throughout Hawaii and has also expanded to Orange County.
