Super Shopping!

I was reading our local newspaper the other day and became so excited! There are three, count them, THREE new stores coming to my area! Like, two miles away from my house! As in, no need to go to some crowded mall when I need or want something! You want to know the stores that are coming? OK, first is one of my favorite home décor shops, filled with interesting and unique items! It's Kirklands! Yay! I love this store! You can find so many different items at Kirklands in all styles and price ranges. I stopped in one day last week and picked up a couple of little goodies because, as luck would have it, I had recently discovered a gift card in my wallet that I forgot I had! Well tickle my funny bone and call me giggly! New store, new stuff and free? Yippie!
The second store I read about is going into the same strip mall as Kirklands. I've only been to this store twice before, and found some nice photo frames there and kitchen items. From their commercials, they seem to sell quite a variety of things, so you never quite know what will be in stock. That store is Big Lots!
I can't wait for this last store to open! I've heard so much about it from other bloggers and Face Bookers and have whined and moaned and lusted after the crafting and home décor items they have reported getting there. The nearest one to me is about 2 hours away - not exactly convenient. I must admit, when I read that "it" was opening a new store here,  I squealed! Are you ready? It''s.......Hobby Lobby! Oh my gosh I can't wait to get in there and see all that I have been hearing about for years!

I'm normally not a big shopper, but I am a crafter and home décor nut so having these three new sources really thrills me to no end! I'll be reporting more as the last two open and I give them a whirl!
Thanks for dropping by - you know how much I love it when you take time to read my posts and I always love your comments! Have a great day! Hugs, Leena


  1. Okay, I've never been to Kirklands and we have a Big Lots a mile from me that I've been to exactly once (wasn't impressed), but I am SO SO SO SO freakin' jealous of your Hobby Lobby!! I shopped in one when we were in Atlanta (I think? Or maybe Orlando!) and I was in heaven. I could easily spend an entire day in there and STILL feel a need to return within the week. I'm jealous, dammit! Why do you live so far away?

  2. Oh yes, you'll have fun at Hobby Lobby. Happy shopping. Love that last image, btw.

  3. Wow, Leena- Not ONE, NOT TWO, but THREE great stores close to home for you- xo Diana

  4. So cool! We have a Kirklands, near us...and a Big Lots. Haven't been in a Big Lots in forever! And!....we are getting a Hobby Lobby here too!!!! I've been meaning to go to their site to find out when it will open. It's maybe just a mile from our house! Can you guess where my new hangout will be lol!

    Yea for you and me! We be lucky!

    Happy Saturday to you!

    Love and Hugs!
