When you return your online purchase, you must bring the invoice sent to your email. Hobby Lobby credits the return as a Hobby Lobby gift card. Any Hobby Lobby store cannot handle shipping and/or handling fees. If the item was defective, you could get your shipping fees credited but need to call or email Hobby Lobby.

If you send your item back to HobbyLobby.com, Hobby Lobby will refund your money to the credit card used during purchase.
