Somebody stop me! Hobby Lobby Clearance
« on: September 04, 2020, 12:05:40 PM »
Deals just too good to pass up!

I went to Hobby Lobby on Wednesday (9/2/20) to buy yarn (on sale 30% off).  And luckily/unluckily ... I passed through the stamp and scrapbook aisles just before the store was closing. 

They had clearance stickers on a bunch of stuff!!  I got a Prima stencil for $1.49, Ranger detail blending tools ... that I hated paying $5.99 for were marked $1.49 (closer to what they are really worth!  handy for stenciling or ink blending in tight spots though). 3D Texture Fade embossing folders marked down from $7.99 to $1.99 and from $9.99 to $2.49.  A Tim Holtz Doodle Art thinlit for $4.24.  I had to choose quickly as they were announcing the store closing.  I might have to go back this weekend ...

Yesterday I think I saw something on FB?  somewhere?  That Hobby Lobby might be discontinuing carrying brands other than their own, and will instead start manufacturing their own items.  Have you heard about this?  I hope it's not true.  They have the best selection in my area.  Michaels and Joanns have gotten kind of sad.

Many Sizzix, Spellbinders, TH dies and embossing folders were on sale except for the very newest.  Other brands and products as well. 

Wear a mask and head to Hobby Lobby!

I have been meaning to go to Hobby Lobby but I wouldn’t be very motivated to go if they only carried their own brands. What’s the point of that!?

I agree, Heidi.    I found the FB post.  It was on the Totally Tiffany Get Organized Challenge page. 

Here's what was posted

ALERT!!  ALERT!! Hobby Lobby is going to stop carrying any brands but their own - might only apply to scrapbooking inventor!!! Brands mentioned includes Totally Tiffany!!  (Employee told me.) They are having too much trouble getting stock in and will be adding new products to their production plant here in the USA. Most brands are or will be soon on sale/clearance!  ALSO sign up for their emails to get 40% off regularly priced coupons 2 or 3 times a week.

My store doesn't have very much Totally Tiffany, but I did notice Sizzix, Prima and Spellbinders on clearance ... not all, but quite a few items.  They might just be making room for new shipments ... let's hope.

Our Joann's got rid of a lot of Darice embossing folders and replaced with Park Lane ... also other Park Lane paper crafting items.  I found them kind of cheap.  It seems last time I was in J's they had added even another cheap line.  That stuff always ends up in clearance a few months down the road.  Michael's has Recollections.  Hobby Lobby already has their Paper Studio (?) line ... maybe they are expanding that?

When I went in for my gel press, I did pick up some bargains too, I had to hold myself back and ask do I really want this or just because it is a good price. Plus all Tim Holtz stuff was 40% off to this week, so I did pick up a few things from his line.  I agree about Joanns taking away all the darice folders and putting out their own, they every once in awhile will have a new stamp set I like, crazy how they got rid of most of their dies.  Michaels has a sad selection of stamps I think.
