Where to Get Beads, Part 3

 I am continuing my exploration of different places to get beads. Today's exploration is Hobby Lobby.

Hobby Lobby has a section in one of their craft aisles with beads, and another section on a different aisle with plastic lacing, and keyrings. Here are some photos of what I found during a recent visit to the Hobby Lobby store nearest my home in Florida.

These first photos are of various bags of beads. They had a nice assortment of single colors, as well as color assortments. 

Black Aurora Borealis Beads

UV Pony Beads change colors in the sun.

They had a small selection of mini pony beads (which is my favorite size)

Hobby Lobby had some beads in fun shapes, which can be fun for making bracelets or necklaces, or as a special feature in a pony bead critter. They also had alphabet beads with large enough holes to use with pony beads.

They also had a few bead organizers with assorted colors of beads. These are nice because they're already organized into separate colors, and the organizer is refillable. As with the other stores, they had a few colors in these that were not available in the bags shown above.

Hobby Lobby had a few different pony bead project kits.

Finally, they had some plastic lacing assortments, as well as some keyrings and lanyard hooks. The tube lacing looks interesting and I'll try it sometime.

Stay tuned. My final report will be on Michaels.

If you are looking for the widest variety of colors, give Bolek's Craft Supplys a try! They have 78 different colors of pony beads!
