I just went into Hobby Lobby for the first time.   I spent 90 dollars.  I could have spent 2000.   Dear god, what a place...

Yes, yes, Hobby Lobby has everything under the sun.

Take advantage of their online only printable coupons for those much covited items. You can also keep track of their weekly specials with their on-line ads.

I have to limit myself to ONLY going in to purchase my neededs for specific projects.

Maybe they've opened a bigger, better one nearby. See http://www.hobbylobby.com/site3/store/locations.cfm
It could happen!

This is how sad an effect this store had on me and my ex-wife:   we went there for one specific thing (having never been there before) - graphite lube for my kid's pinewood racer.  We were there for TWO HOURS.   As we were leaving, I realized that at some point we had put the kids's jackets down and forgotten them.   Walking back to the scrapbooking section, to find their coats, I litteraly had to look up at the ceiling while crossing the store so I wouldn't buy anything else.

Ye Gods, I wish we had one here... the nearest thing I have round here is Loose Threads, which is very kitsch and mostly for quilters but you find the odd good thing in there. I have to go round there, the art shop, the DIY shop, the hardware shop, the supermarket, the fabric shop and the upholstery fabric shop to find everything I need...

It's a good thing they are closed on Sundays, or that's where I would be, dropping a bundle.

Oh, man.  We just got our Hobby Lobby about a year ago.  I love it.

The only beef I have with Hobby Lobby is that they rarely, if ever, have sales on their polymer clay.  I have a spaz when Michael's has all clay for 99 cents, but that never happens at Hobby Lobby.  Sad

Also, I dislike most of the music that they play. 

Other than that, Hobby Lobby is awesome!

Polymer Clay Challenge #2 has a winner, RobbinZombie!  her entry was The Kraken  She will receive a prize from Persephone Rose!

the only thing i hate about new zealand is its an island.... in the middle of no where!!!

you couldn't even get espresso coffee here until about 1995 (fortunately i was not a caffine addict back then).

the problem is, every thing has to be brought down here on a boat, most products only have a few retailers and consequently, we get gauged on a regular basis.

last week i spent $15 on buttons alone, don't even get me started on beads.

my point is, i really wish i could go to hobby lobby. it sounds like crafter heaven- even if the name is a little rediculous.
