I love the integrity of Hobby Lobby. They stick to their beliefs.
I can't wait to score some of those exclusive kits.
Indeed! Especially when smuggling, I mean "importing", looted religious artifacts under false documents from the middle east!Chuck,
Indeed, they do !
I read that article years ago. I know your post was meant to be funny but it is not a full representation of the case. If you read more than headlines, you will realize it is a media kit piece. It is one event and the size of the claim is media was exaggerated. PBS originally claimed that Hobby Lobby was smuggling 40K artifacts for sale in their stores. When called out for being fake news, they change the story to less than 5K and admitted they were purchased for museums or fro display in Christain bookstores.Indeed! Especially when smuggling, I mean "importing", looted religious artifacts under false documents from the middle east!

I did not believe the post to be "funny". I took it to be a "smear" of a Christian business, made to appear credible by "editing" the facts to suit an agenda.I know your post was meant to be funny but it is not a full representation of the case.
I agree 100%. They should do the same thing for all the HobbyTown hobby shops.This is a win-win for both the retailer and Estes. It drives more traffic into their store from rocketeers, and always Estes to retain shelf space at one of the larger hobby retailers. Wonder if others will start looking for exclusives with Estes now?
Great kits at great prices.
Nice Score!, I found the Cherokee -E and bought 2Went to Hobby Lobby tonight in Bloomington, IN. Got a Cherokee-E, Citation Patriot, 220 Swift, and a Luna Bug. My big score was a Mercury Redstone that was in a cart/buggy (depending on your location) next to the clearance rack. It didn't have a new "Your Price" sticker, nor a clearance sticker. I asked the manager about it, she checked with someone else and they didn't know if it was clearance or not, so the went ahead and gave me 75% off. Got it for $6.25! Walked out with five kits for $49.44!
No. Here is the selection at one south Puget Sound store not long ago. The one in the upper left that's cut off is the Mean Machine. The empty hook on the bottom row is marked for the Space Crater egg lofter.So, here is a logical question . . .
With exclusive"Hobby Lobby" Estes kits, are those the only Estes kits that Hobby Lobby will be carrying in the future ?
Lakewood CA restocks on Thursday.I think the Federal Way store restocks on Tuesdays. Don't know about Puyallup or Tacoma or Lakewood.
I grabbed a Luna Bug a couple of weeks ago and had it with me at Sod Blaster but didn't get it flown. Maybe Saturday.
