Which would you choose to go to. I am visiting Boston and Rochester in three weeks time. I have already put an order in from two peas to be delivered when I am at my sister in laws and a substantial flair order not to mention a cricut cartridge I being delivered. But I would like to have a poke around a real life store. Just looking for little bits and pieces nothing in particular, I am not looking for a scrapbook store in particular

I don't know if there is one in that area, but I think Hobby Lobby has the largest selection.

I would say Hobby Lobby as well. They have a lot of new CHA merchandise. They've come a long way with their selection the last few months.

Hobby Lobby or Michael's. I'm no longer a fan of Joann's, even though they usually have some BG I like.

My #1 choice is Archiver's. After that, it would be Hobby Lobby -- but going in, I know that I'm not getting paper, but embellishments because their paper selection is terrible.

HL, hands down. Best sales, best selection, cheapest overall prices, and best store brand.

Hobby Lobby most definitely, they give me a weekly 40% off coupon and they have great selection.

Well living in Canada, we only have Ms so when I go to the US I always stop in at Joann's, AC Moore and Hobby Lobby! But if I could only go to one of them, I have to agree that it would definitely be Hobby Lobby. Fantasy selection of all kinds of things-scrappy and otherwise. I dragged my sister in with me once and eve she-who is not a scrapper-loved it!

As a Canadian with no LSS nearby and only Ms. I would have to say Hobby Lobby. It's my first stop when doing cross border shopping.

HL, not sure is one in that area. AC Moore may be and I think you can get coupons on their site also.

Haven't been to an Archiver's so I'm gonna have to go with Hobby Lobby - and even if it's 45 minutes away!

Yet another vote for Hobby Lobby! Best selection of art and scrapbooking supplies by far, and lovely decor stuff too. I have several pieces from HL that I use for storage in my craft room.

Hobby Lobby is the Disneyland of scrapbooking for me. M's is my go-to place because it's next to Target for me so it's convenient. I could spends hours in both of them.

Then it would be Jo-Anns and then AC Moore.

There's one about an hour away from Boston in Warwick, RI. Plus they have Michaels, Joanns, Christmas Tree Shoppe and AC Moore all within a few minutes of the HL. You could hit them all!

I'm amazed - I haven't been to HL for a year or so but the closest one to me was usually disappointing. I may have to give it another chance sometime.

Hands down Archivers if you have one in your area or close by. After that Hobby Lobby. I buy all my adhensive at HL since no one else carries the brand and I have been able to buy Echo Park Paper Kits with all the paper & embellishments for 40% off or $4.99/8.99. They are normally $13.99/21.99 at Archivers. Then on to JoAnn's followed by Michaels.
