Loose Threads: Timing is Everything I Guess

Timing is Everything I Guess

This post isn't quilt related or even craft related, but I went into Hobby Lobby yesterday to look around.   I love their store.  There are a lot of one of a kind items plus a lot of craft supplies.  This is what I saw.  I could hardly believe it, so I snapped a few photos with my phone.

Notice the pumpkins next to the Christmas trees.  Yesterday was July 21!
















It looks like they had just finished stocking the shelves.  I guess this is truly one stop shopping.  You can get your Halloween and Christmas decorations all at once, and be ready for both way ahead of time.

Thanks for stopping by!

We were there last week and noticed they had started the holiday aisles already. Must be first in line to get those shoppers.

I was in a week or two ago and they had Halloween out and were just starting to break out the Christmas.
Once I heard a shop owner explain that people actually start looking for Christmas stuff in July--for "Christmas in July" events and to start Christmas crafting, sending packages overseas, etc. But it is still a little soon for me. : )

I was in there the other day and saw the same thing!! I can't STAND it when holiday stuff is out 6 MONTHS before the holiday!! Not anywhere near ready for that!

Please tell me they weren't already playing Christmas carols over the PA system!

Same thin going on here . The worst thing to me is when I do get in the Christmas mood there won't be anything left to buy..

Ugh! I wish there were laws stating you can not have decorations out for Christmas until AFTER Thanksgiving!

My family and I stopped exchanging Christmas gifts many years ago ... we made the decision the first time we walked into a department store before Halloween and saw Christmas decorations on display. It was just such a turn-off.
