Hobby Lobby Open Close to Home

About a year ago I wrote a post about rumors  that a Hobby Lobby was coming to town.

hobby Lobby, Norcal, Tracy, New store, Hobbies, memoriesThere were already Hobby Lobby stores in Northern California, but none were nearby. 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, with the pandemic I  have been to the office a lot less often.

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

The announcement also brought back memories of 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, even if I lived close, 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.

Just walking through the store brought back many memories. I had memories of stores back in Missouri as well of crafts and hobbies from years past. I have been thinking renewing some of my hobbies, or perhaps starting some new ones.
