there’s a new craft store in town!

January 18, 2011

Welcome to the Hobby Lobby! Part kitschy nick-nack hell part crafty heaven. This store has something for everyone. I was amazed by the aisles and aisles of craft supplies – there were three aisles just for stickers! And they carry pretty obscure supplies that usually require a trip to specialty store – soap stone carving, anyone? They also had stained glass supplies and doll house kits and furniture! You can find everything you would expect from your average craft store – fake flowers, scrapbooking stuff and paints. But they also have fabric, drawer pulls, and home decor.

I am excited because it is a one stop shop for me. I can pick up paint, fabric, drawer pulls and mod podge all in one spot and it’s across the street from Trader Joe’s. Short Pump here I come.

There prices seemed pretty reasonable, not fantastic, but the sale prices were awesome! The day I went all drawer pulls were 50% off. And most of their fabrics were 30% off. I got a yard of fabric for under $5 – love it!

cute ribbon - $1 each!

The home decor section was not really my style but the yard ornament aisle gave me a good laugh. If you are into gnomes, frogs or turtles this is your store!

The Hobby Lobby also has an excellent selection of “man crafts” – model cars, science experiments and army men. I was happy I didn’t have Jasper with me because they have a million things that a toddler, or any age kid, would love. Glittery paper, plastic animals and coloring books.

So if you are at all crafty – I recommend you go check it out. But don’t go on Sunday because they are closed!

Hobby Lobby is located at 11280 West Broad Street, Glen Allen, VA 23060.
