Our Hobby Lobby just opened yesterday..I am hoping to get there tomorrow. Have heard many good things obout it on this board, but also some negative comments..BUT we only have Michaels and a small Joannes here so it will be a very welcome store. Going to hit the fabric dept first, and hope they carry some outdoor fabrics,, but am very anxious to see the bead dept. Also hope to find some nice pots for plants on a window ledge.
I was overwhelmed the first time I went through a HL. It is a whole different type of store than Michaels. Much more home decor.
Just an FYI in case you get busy tomorrow. HL is not open Sundays.
Have a great time!This message has been edited. Last edited by: annie17,
I'm almost embarrassed to admit, but I've never been to a Hobby Lobby (gasp). It sure sounds like a store to get lost in, have fun!
I went into one for the first time last year and I too was overwhelmed.
What I did was just walked through so I would know what they carried. I did get a few things I was looking for but mostly looked.
The store is huge, bring water! lol

They are a huge store but the thing to remember is that every week they have "something" at half price (i.e. lamps, pillows, frames, etc.) so we always wait until that item is half price before we buy!
And their mark down sales are good as well -- 80% off the items on the shelves and they're from all over the store.
They are a good place for seasonal items but wait until they are 50% off (and that happens several times during that season's selling season -- i.e. Fall and Halloween are put out in July I think (LOL!)
If you like silks they have a nice selection of those as well and the ones here are one of the few places that you can buy upholstery type fabric to do those little projects like cushions or curtains.
But I do know that much of their merchandise is made in China!
View my blog:
They have a 40% downloadable coupon EVERY week. Their sale flyer is posted every week on their website too. Fabrics are always marked down 30%, but you can use the 40% coupon instead. The fabric selection is different than Joanns and they have a few outdoor fabrics. Remember that they are NOT open on Sunday (I found that out the hard way).
DH and I went last Tuesday coming back from Tampa. Needless to say we didn't come home empty handed.
I got two more roosters and a few other things.

If you have a phone that has Internet access, you can just go to their web site and show them the coupon on your phone. I keep their page bookmarked for just such occasions. Today, it saved me $3.00 off a package of vellum sheets.
When you go to their site using a mobile device, it opens a mobile view of their site--not the full-fledged site that takes forever. So, it loads quickly.
Watch your battery life on your phone. If it's running low, and you get stuck in a long line, you don't want your battery going dead just as you get to the cashier!!!
Loveeeeeeee HL! Any time I am depressed or out of sorts in any way...I roan the HL for an hour and then I feel much, much happier; works every time.
...I hope you enjoy it too!
I wanna HOBBY LOBBY! I LOVE HOBBY LOBBY!!!!
Grandchildren are God's gift to you for not killing your own!
We don't stop playing because we grow old...we grow old because we stop playing
went yesterday--wasen't even adevertised as the grand opening is sceduled for Tuesday,,but it was crowded, and people were buying--
I am going back on Tuesday==
so glad we have it, and I am sure it will do very well here.
One opened near us recently. Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised. There is the usual craft paraphernalia and silk flowers but some of their home decor items were surprisingly stylish.
i wish they'd look at the empty kmart we have here in town,
we have about 20-30 minute drive (traffic) not only do they have hobby lobby they also have ikea, and other great shopping...it's supposed to be one of the most conjested street on se mi, lol...
