If you live in the US you might have been to a Hobby Lobby some time in your life. I have been there once or twice with my aunts when I visited them in Texas at Christmas time in 2006. My aunt Louise brought me there before Christmas to buy herself some jewelry supplies then on Christmas morning my Aunt Joyce gave me a Hobby Lobby gift card which I had to spend before I came back to California because we don’t have the wonderful warehouse.
If you have never been to one, I can only describe it as a cross between Wal*mart and Michael’s. They probably aren’t as big as a Wal*mart store but they are bigger than Michael’s and they carry more merchandise than Michael’s.
The reason this came to mind today is because last night I was watching these tutorial videos from ehow.com on how to make hemp necklaces. The woman doing the tutorials showed all the 4 different sizes of hemp and said to get them from Hobby Lobby. Well, Michael’s only had 2 sizes but she had all the sizes which means Hobby Lobby must carry everything when Michael’s only carries half.
I looked at the map on the Hobby Lobby website to see how many states away we are from Hobby Lobby and I was shocked to see that California and Oregon are the only 2 states on the west coast who does not have a Hobby Lobby. That sucks big time. I think that they need to bless California with their presence starting with Bakersfield lol. If not, at least sell merchandise on your website!
