Is anyone else as addicted to this place as I am? lol. I love this place and I visit it more than I vist all three of my local hobby shops. I find myself stopping in almost twice a week, mostly for paint and clear. My wife loves it too and it's very hard for her to go and not come out with something. Right now they are having a 50% off sale on vintage muscle car items. Mugs ,lamps, advertisement signs,pictures, really cool stuff. I am currently outfitting my gameroom with the stuff. Anyone else here that can't stay out of this place, If so how often do you stop in? 

 

OH!!! Also I don't know if any of the stores are doing it but allot of kits are being clearanced out at $10 each.

Dante, Hobby Lobby for me is a 35 mile trip just one way . Considering that at least in the Craft lines , I have TWO Michael's , I can't justify the traffic and the congestion of the Short Pump near Richmond store . Hey, I used to hate Westhimer road in Houston . Richmond Virginia's far west Broad street pales in comparison ..................

Never.  There are none around in my neck of the woods.  I've never even been in one.

I hit them whenever I am near one. Used to get mad at myself for not printing the coupon out ahead of time until I realized I could look it up on my smartphone and save the paper!

 

Amazing how many people you see in line with smartphones getting their coupon code ready!

Since the nearest one is 125 miles away, about three times a year. It's not enough, believe me! :(

I've never been to a Hobby Lobby, there isn't one near me.  I will go to the local shop in Westchester, PA if I'm in need of supplies but the don't stock Tamiya paints.  I'll go to Avenel Hobbies in NJ when I'm there for my Tri-State club meetings. They cater to car modelers and have BMF and other goodies.

Used to have one in the mall near where I work, within 5 minuites walking distance. Since I usually walked over to the grocery store next to it on break, I usually went in there pretty much every day, sometimes twice in the same day. Since they closed (mall didn't want to deal with them on the lease), the nearest one is about 40 miles away. I usually try to go there if I'm over that way, but that's not ver often.

I have a local Hobby Lobby 1/2 mile from my house and usually I only go in there if I need something like paint, blades, etc. I have bought many kits there, some just for parts, however I'm tryin' to buy less and build more.

I have a HL less than a five minute drive from my house.  My wife and I go there probably on average two or three trips a month, with coupon.  I think their selection is pretty decent and with the discount it's the easiest way for me to save money.  I buy a lot of my small business supplies there, too, since I can go through bags and K&S tubing pretty quickly at times.  I was able to order a couple '57 Ford tudors when they came out and was able to use a 40% off coupon, to pay for each of those.

Yes, they are closed on Sunday--good.  I am lucky to be within a mile of HObby Lobby.  The coupon comes out of the Sunday paper and on the bulletin board weekly.  My purchases may include a kit but more likely supplies  and other craft items I can used.  I am nos using some Krylon paints and like the 40% off.  Earlier this spring I bought two car guy iems. They are stacks of tires that are supposed to be pen/pencil holders.  I find them great for paint brushes and atmosphere.

It depends, but sometimes I go months between visits ,  and the only reason I shop at HL is becasue of the 40% off coupons.

Probably about once a month.  Depends on what I need, or if I have a coupon burning a hole in my pocket.  Last thing I got from there was a 70 Plymouth Road Runner for about $12.  They have great clearance sales.  :)

I attempted to go to the nearest one last night but they close at 8 pm...

Has anyone tried to use the mobile coupon and the printable coupon at the same time? They are two different codes making them two different coupons.
