The Secret Sale Hobby Lobby Only Has Twice a Year

Make sure to mark your calendars if you want to get home décor items at a serious discount.

Hobby LobbyKen Wolter/ShutterstockHobby Lobby has everything you could possibly ever want to give your home the design upgrade it desperately needs. You’re guaranteed to find good deals any time you step into the store, but we have news that every Hobby Lobby enthusiast will flip for: there’s a sale that can get you up to 90 percent off certain items.

Twice a year, Hobby Lobby has a secret sale on their home accents department that can net you some serious savings. The first one happens right after Mother’s Day and the second right after Christmas, according to hearthookhome.com. Remember, it’s a secret—meaning it’s definitely not advertised, so make sure to mark your calendars so you don’t forget! Find out other insider secrets to help you save at all your favorite stores, too.

Items typically start at a 50 percent to 66 percent off discount. Items that are still left after a few weeks will be discounted by 80 percent and then 90 percent shortly after. So, if you’re patient you’ll be able to snag a few extra knickknacks for your shelves for practically nothing.

The good news is that Hobby Lobby constantly has sales running and there are always great finds in the clearance section, so don’t fret if you need to get some summer décor and can’t hold out until the next secret sale. The bad news? There are a few items that never go on sale, such as cards or gift wrap, specialty paper, party supplies, licensed products, Cricut machines, or cake decorating and candy making supplies. Try finding deals on those at your local dollar store—and be sure to find out the items you should always be buying while you’re there.
