In addition to scrapbooking, crocheting, and denying women access to affordable contraception, Hobby Lobby's interests now include Brooklyn real estate. Or, at least that's what one Williamsburg prankster wants us believe.

Earlier this week, a tipster alerted us to a mysterious sign in the window of the old Woodley & Bunny space on North Tenth Street and Driggs. "Coming to This Location: Hobby Lobby Holiday Pop-Up," it read. Now, while there's a slight chance the Kinko's print-out was placed there by an actual Hobby Lobby exec, we're pretty sure it's a joke. Or maybe the Great Williamsburg Cat Café Ruse of 2013 has left us jaded.
