Blogtoberfest Day #25
You’d think if I was blogging about a chain craft store, I must be short on things to blog about, but you’d be wrong. I mean, seriously, who blogs about Hobby Lobby?
Um, that would be me. It apparently just opened this weekend, without much fanfare, I might add. I heard about it at the scrapbook show I was at over the weekend. The people I bought the bubble tool from told me about it. When I rolled in at 1am Sunday morning I got on line to see if it was true. It was, but they are closed on Sunday, so I impatiently waited until Monday morning to make the twenty minute trek. It has immediately become my very favorite craft store of all time. Man, just the sheer size of the place blew me away.
It was the shopping experience of the month. Maybe even longer. Sometime during my wandering I think I passed out from sheer joy, then when I regained conscientiousness I wondered for a moment if those “when Harry met Sally” noises had come out of my mouth or were just running around making a ruckus in my head. It was that good. And I wasn’t the only one. There were women everywhere with loaded shopping carts and euphoric looks on their faces.
I never made it to the scrapbooking, beading or Christmas sections, let alone fabric or yarn, before I ran out of time. And I didn’t even get what I went there for (ATC sleeves.) Every aisle was a new delight. It was as if their buyers had crawled into my head and bought everything at market that they knew I would just have to have.
They had lots of red…
And that’s not the half of it! And every single thing I bought was either 40% or 50% off. I didn’t even get to use my 40% off coupon. Given another half hour, and I would have needed a second shopping cart. I’m so embarrassed.
Now I’m feverishly trying to figure out how and when I can get back over there as quickly as possible to do it again…I mean I need to get what I went there for…right?
