There's a new store in town. It's one I've heard about for years, but never seen. I suspected it was a mid-West/East Coast rumor. "Everything you might want"? All under one roof? I admit, I was a skeptic. That is, I was a skeptic, until I walked through the sliding doors yesterday morning.
Welcome Hobby Lobby!!!
It's a magical place with SELECTION. Oh, my gosh!! No more will I have to set foot into JoAnn's, no longer will I have to wait in a line of 20 people for the single register open at Michaels! They've got what I want, whether it is upholstery fabric, buttons, art paper, drafting supplies, or 15 colors of foam core. All under one roof? I couldn't believe it.
My husband went with me. When he saw the kits for model cars and the rocketry section, he went looking for the trains. Well, I guess they don't have everything. They don't have model trains.
But they do seem to have everything else.
It won't be a place to dash in and find a single item - it looks like a place I'll want to go when I have an hour to browse and really take a look at their stock.
In the meantime, I found a black frog closure for a cape (I'd been looking for a month and hadn't found one) and gold button stars, exactly like the ones I used up on my Christmas cards.
Welcome to the neighborhood!!!
