Hobby Lobby in Morgan Hill???

So cool! I live in San jose and drove by today to Lake Anderson on Cochrane Road and saw a big sign saying home of Hobby Lobby...

very excited...can't wait for them to open to check it out. It's nice to see an outstanding vendor in my own backyard!

I did a quick Google search and here it is:

shoot...it looks like it is this one:

http://www.hobbylobby.com/

but when I'm on that site, they also reference http://www.hobby-lobby.com/

hmmmm....are these guys related...perhaps owned by the same people?

I stopped into a Hobby Lobby store in Pensacola, Florida thinking that it was Hobby-Lobby, it wasn't anything like it. More like a Michaels Crafts combined with a Pier One.

Thanks Joe. After taking a 2nd look, I'm sure you're 100% correct. That's too bad, was hoping to see hobby-lobby here in my own backyard.

Although I'd be interested to see if there's a relation between these guys...why the same name (cause of confusion), and the hobbylobby.com site even references the hobby-lobby site too.

Unfortunately, there are two companies called "Hobby Lobby". One is the hobby store located in Brentwood, TN that we all know and love, and this is the only storefront they have. The other is a nationwide chain of craft stores similar to Jo-Ann's and Michael's.

Because of the constant confusion between hobbyists and crafters, each company has a link to the others website at the top of their web pages.

Sorry to burst your bubble. But the craft store is good for one thing, Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue.
