At this point, Hobby Lobby is like a second home to me, and if you’ve been crafting for some time too, you know that they have the best discounts and sales. It seems like every time I’m there, something new is marked down.
Can I let you in on a secret? These sales aren’t random. The more I went into Hobby Lobby, the more I noticed a sort of clockwork-like feel to them and thought to myself, there must be some science behind this. Turns out I was right!
Hobby Lobby’s sales rotate throughout the year. Knowing when your favorite crafting items are on sale will help you save money while turning that painting and lettering side project into cash – I wish I had seen this when I started making DIY wooden door hangers!
