Hobby Lobby Mega-Craft-DIY-Decor-Store

Since I started blogging a few years back, I have read hundreds (nea, thousands) of other DIY blogs for entertainment, DIY information and inspiration to…

Hobby Lobby Do What You Love SignMany times, I have seen the craft store Hobby Lobby mentioned as THE place to go for craft, hobby & DIY supplies. I have shopped at Hobby Lobby online, but the stores were not local enough for me to make a shopping trip. Well, with the opening of their newest store in Seabrook, NH, Hobby Lobby is now within my driving range. So last week Mom and I took a road trip to check out what all the fuss was about.

Hobby Lobby Welcome SignHave to say, Hobby Lobby did not disappoint! This is not a hobby shop. Hobby Lobby is a mega-craft-DIY-decor-Store…essentially all of my local craft and sewing outlets combined into one huge superstore.  If you paint, decoupage, sew, design shirts, scrapbook, bake cakes, throw parties or just decorate your home…there is an aisle (or two) for you! As we strolled up and down the aisles…and aisles…and more aisles…we were blow away by the enormity, not only of the physical store itself, but of the sheer quantity and selection of vintage and modern home decor and DIY products. Loving these cute little clocks! I’ll take one in every color, please : )

Hobby Lobby Vintage ClocksI snapped a few pics as we strolled the aisles, but there is no way to convey the sheer enormity of this mega-store without seeing it for yourself. In the home decor area, we discovered rows of modern and traditional lamps

Hobby Lobby Lamp AisleI don’t think I’ve ever seen such an enormous collection of knobs and pulls anyway…ever

Hobby Lobby Red Marquee Letter Stacksome were colorfully painted…all were on sale (and if not, they have coupons!)

Hobby Lobby Wood Craft LettersSeasonal decor was scattered throughout the store, featuring outdoor patio sets (that we may or may not ever get to use this year if the weather doesn’t break soon!)

Hobby Lobby Red Bench VignetteAnd there were loads of Paris-inspired pieces as well.

Hobby Lobby Paris Milk Jug We spent over an hour wandering around, taking in the sights, listening to other folks exclaiming “wow, this place is amazing” and thinking of creative ways to add “just one more piece” to our already crowded walls and halls.  In the end, we simply purchased some drawer knobs for mom’s bathroom makeover and these amazing vintage porcelain door knobs for me.
