Ethical Alternatives to Hobby Lobby


The other day, in an attempt to repair some of my favorite clothes, I headed to the one place I knew would have everything I needed: Hobby Lobby! Where else is going to have the specific burnt orange thread I needed to make a quick mend on my favorite Elegantees dress, or the glycerin soap I needed to get some stains out of my son’s mini+meep shirt? (Yeah, this is really what I was shopping for! I love our DoneGood brands!)  

Hobby Lobby is popular for a reason. They have everything. Home goods, wall art, seasonal decor, and of course, everything you need for all your hobbies and crafting!

But as I’ve sifted through all the “Made in China” tags throughout the years, fearing that the goods I was buying were actually falsely cheap, I began to think there had to be better, more sustainable places to get all this stuff.

And of course, there are! DoneGood has partnered with all kinds of brands to ethically meet your crafting, home decor, and seasonal needs. Let’s check them out!
