Shopping The 80% Off Aisle At Hobby Lobby



Hi everyone! Last weekend I went to Hobby Lobby for the first time since April (which is a long time for me~smile) and I went straight to the 80% off aisles. I should have taken my camera for those of you that don’t have a Hobby Lobby.

Photo2
The deals in those aisles are just amazing! Picture shelves and shelves of all kinds of candlesticks, obelisks, frames, art, signs, decorative items etc….all 80% off the original price! Want to see what I got for $17?

I got these three things!

rooster
Love the black rooster (which looks very similar to the one I painted white from Goodwill).

Rosterprice
To give you an idea of the pricing in those aisles - the rooster was $6 and the cross was $3 and the picture was $8.

Newcross
I added the new cross to the crosses that are in our hallway (top right).

It’s hard to photograph that wall since the hallway is small (I had to stand in the hall closet for this one LOL)!

It was fun to shop Hobby Lobby especially since my Husband and Daughter left me there while they did other errands. Usually they walk around a bit then sit at the front waiting for me. This time I could look at everything at my leisure. Plus I hadn’t been in a few months so there were a lot of new things to see!

A few things that will be coming up….Friday I’ll have photos of my living room china cabinet decorated for the 4th of July and the following Monday will be the July Book Giveaway.

As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit today!

Enjoy!

Why oh why is there no Hobby Lobby in my town? I'm telling you I could keep them up and running forever. LOL!

You found some deals! I love that darling black rooster. Everything is precious. :)

Connie said...

It is on my list (TRULY) of places to shop today, sugar! Ours is a new one so I've only been there once. Squeeeeeal....

How awesome! Ours isn't having any clearance sales so I guess it depends on what part of the country. They did ours about 4 months ago. Love your great finds!!

Julie Harward said...

I love it all...you always find the best deals! There is no store like that anywhere near me but I sure wish there was! Come say hi sometime :D

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Nice buys! I love when they have the 60 & 80% off sales.

Karen said...

You are just TAUNTING me! We have no Hobby Lobby in California. NOT FAIR! I had heard a rumor they might be coming last summer . . . but have not heard anything since then.
Love your wall. It is just gorgeous! I particularly like the one mounted on the music paper in the frame. So pretty!
Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
:) Karen

Girl you did great...love the cross and where you hung it...Now we don't have a Hobby Lobby's in Calif. yet I think they must think we don't like to decorate our homes or have no money ha ha!! Of course with all our forecloser's here maybe there right...
I go to Home Goods alot to shop and it's in another state from me ha ha!!
Hope you have a GREAT day my Dear friend...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Patti said...

I love the crosses in your hall! You did very well at 80%!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

The closest Hobby Lobby to me is an hour away, so I have only been once. Looks like you got some amazing buys!

Kristi said...

You did fantastic!! Love all 3 of your finds!! I am SO sad we don't have Hobby Lobby!! My cousin lives in Alabama and she has got me some goodies from there!! Infact my plant shelf in the family room is filled with birdhouses from there, LOL! She took pictures of them for me and got them for a steal and then when she came to visit she drove them up!! Long distance decorating! Yes, we are crazy! LOL but in a good way! ;)

Debbie said...

Great scores!! I love them all, and the prices are wonderful.

In fact, you have nudged me to take a field trip to our Hobby Lobby during my errand run this afternoon. I haven't been in a while,and that discount aisle is calling my name.

Megan said...

The display of crosses in your hallway are great--especially with the yellow wall background.
This morning I saw an ad in the help wanted section of the paper from Hobby Lobby accepting applications. They will be opening a store VERY close to me. YEA!! At last. I've been so jealous of all you Hobby Lobbiers! (;0)

Colleen - the AmAzINg Mrs. B said...

LOVE the crosses - beautiful! And, you are one remarkable shopper :-)

Brenda@Cozy Little House said...

Manuela, I just got home from Hobby Lobby! I didn't find the rooster in their aisles. I went back because I'd been in there on Monday and saw something wonderfully priced, but had to come home and measure and mull it over. Went back to get it and will be showing it next time myself. Don't you just love HL? I also saw that their rubber stamps were 40% off and got a few. Thought of you.

Vee said...

Great finds. This reminds me of a course I once took that espoused the theory to never buy anything that wasn't at least 40% off. Eighty per cent off is fantastic!

KJ's Restart Button said...

Ooooo you did good. I love all three.
Konnie

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

Great finds at a great price! Perfect additions to your charming home.

Shelia said...

Woo Hooness! Good for you and what lovely things you found. Now you know I'm loving that Rooster! The picture is pretty too! I love Hobby Lobby!
be a sweetie,

Great finds! I wish we had a Hobby Lobby close by. They have them around the Charlotte area, but not where I am!?!

Jennifer said...

Awesome finds girlfriend!!! Your cross wall looks awesome!

Linda said...

Wow, that collection of crosses is just beautiful. Great finds. Linda

momof3girls said...

Wow! look at you the shopper who found the best deal! I want to head over to Hobby Lobby right now!

Sandra said...

Hi Manuela! You found some awesome finds! I was just there yesterday and we don't have anything 80% off here, boo hoo:( but in a few days i'm going to Houston and maybe i'll be lucky enough to find some treasures overthere. Have a great evening.
Sandra

Angie said...

Of course I love the things you bought since we have similar tastes. I went last week and bought a few clearance things too. I have been trying to limit my visits to HL 'cause I always find plenty I want!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love finding those good deals on things I love! Very nice arrangement! ♥

Joyce said...

Lucky you to find those pretty items and at 80% off too! I have not been to a Hobby Lobby yet. I think there is one up in Kennesaw?

Richella said...

Oh, Manuela, I just love your hallway of crosses!! Have you shown it before? Have I just missed it? I don't know if you've seen my cross collection.

I haven't been to HL since last November. I need to go!

Julie said...

Love the Rooster print!! And the cross collection. like the Proverbs 3:6 cross.
I love to take my time going through Hobby Lobby too! Can't rush through that store. I don't remember if I commented on your last post, but I do love your salt/paper collection! :-)
Hugs to you . Enjoyed visiting, as always!

Julie said...

salt and pepper. oops! I need a spellcheck on the comment box.

I'm just now getting around to catch up and comment after a couple of weeks off. Loved your post on your collections - I'm especially enamored with the S/P shakers. Also, enjoyed seeing your wall of crosses. Have a joyous 4th. Sally

Hi Manuela! What a great find...I LOVE Hobby Lobby. That chicken is like the base on a little lamp I bought online earlier this year. We're heading into the city tomorrow and Hobby Lobby is on my list of places to go so I'm going to check out that 80% off isle. If I find something good I'll have to post it! Enjoy your day and have fun hunting for treasures. Maura :)
