Road Trip to Hobby Lobby

This weekend I did a road trip to Morgan Hill to go to the new Hobby Lobby store. It's a little over an hour from my house - but this is the closest one to me. The store just opened in August. I've been to a Hobby Lobby once before, in Modesto and couldn't wait to check this one out too! Both stores are about the same size - HUGE!
We got there when it opened - 9am.

Below is a picture of the store just as you walk in. I'd say it's about three times the size of a Michael's.
You can't even see the end of the store from one end. They have everything you can imagine that is craft related and they also have a large home accessories section.
We basically had the store to ourselves for the first hour. The store has big wide aisles.

Rachel loved this section - chevrons on everything.
They carry this cool brand called Sew-Ology. Just love the packaging.
Below are pictures from their furniture section.
Love these book boxes...
We spent two hours in this store and we each walked out with a cart load of goodies. There were definitely things there I've never seen before. Favorite finds included: black and white wrapping paper, vintage ledger 12 x 12 scrapbook pad, some great 6x6 scrapbook pads, black and white striped fabric (which is so hard to find), metal findings and wall hanging. Many of the sections were 50% off!
As you can see, I'm really into black and white now.
Nearby were also fun places to shop: antique stores, clothing boutiques, TJ Maxx and Target. So needless to say we were all shopped out by the afternoon. What a fun outing we had - we're going to make this a semi-annual event!

Go Giants!
