Hobby Lobby Coming Soon

Rumors have been circulating that a Hobby Lobby is coming to our town.

There is one by my office, but I have only been to it a few times. When work is over I want to head home. Plus, I have only been to my office once in the last 10 months.

I am looking forward to having a much larger hobby store close by that has a much better selection.

I remember many visits to the Gladstone Hobby Lobby when I lived back in Missouri. I bought quite a few craft supplies there that I still have 🙂 However, I can no longer go back to the Gladstone store as the location has closed.

With a local Hobby Lobby I could have searched for the yarn that my sister could not find back in Iowa.

Now I am wondering which hobbies might tempt me if I have a better source for supplies nearby.

Should I organize my coins and currency from around the world? Should I pull out my stamp collection? Maybe I should do some leather work or perhaps some drawing or painting.
