aww that is to bad mommicakes .. there is actually a jo anns right in my town, but it is not a super jo anns, it just basically sells fabric and some holiday decorations ... very,very few wilton items, wal mart actually carries a better supply of them in my town .. but I am very happy about hobby lobby coming this close!

Yeah, Jo annes is about 1/2 hr from here, very tiny selection for anything cake related. I do have another little shoppe that I use ALL the time. It is the coolest store, it's called Everything But The Cook. He has EVERYTHING!!! wilton, kitchen aid, viking, emeril, all clad and TONS of kitchen gadgets. I can spend all day in there. A typical small New England shop.

Our Hobby Lobby and Michaels is 20 minutes away. We also have a JoAnn's 20 minutes away but they don't carry ANY cake stuff!

isn't it funny how some jo anns carry a lot of cake stuff, some a little, and some none at all? It really irritates me ...

Should I not mention that when Hobby Lobby moved in my town, it moved about a 5 minute drive from my home?


But in all seriousness, congrats. icon_smile.gif You'll LOVE it.

five minutes down the road from me would be awesome, but I'll take a half hour drive over an hour drive any day!

We got a Hobby Lobby and I am the happiest!! Check every week, as they always have coupons. About every other week it is for 40% off any one item. And at my store they take the 40% off the HIGHEST priced thing in your buggy!!!

Along with my Bed Bath and beyond also has a good selection.

I'm happy for you! The closest Michael's and Hobby Lobby is about 45 minutes away..........but with gas prices like they are............I have to make a list...........then again, maybe it's a GOOD thing they aren't closer!!!!!! I'd be there everyday!!!!!!! (love me some Hobby Lobby!!!)

We have a Hobby Lobby. Michael's, a local cake supply store, and a Super Walmart. Plus they are building another Super Walmart. All of this within 5 miles. I guess I got lucky as well. Although I usually just shop at the local cake supply. He's awesome. If there's something that they don't have they will special order for you.

I know! Luckily we have a Walmart that has a large selection about 10 minutes away. So if I am out of the standard stuff...I can get it easily. But I wish Joann would carry more!

I wish we had a specialty store with cake items even within an hour drive! Just so I wouldn't have to order so much online!
