Waco, Texas

Have you dreamed of visiting Magnolia Market since the day you saw Chip and Joanna sit in the downtrodden lot and dream about buying the silos? Is Fixer Upper your inspiration for everything in your house? You’re not alone!

I was oh so lucky to get to go to Magnolia Market while my bestie was in town! Now everyone I run into wants to know all about it so…

The Silos…

5 Things to Know About Magnolia Market-

  1. Yes it is as adorable as it looks on TV.  It is clear Joanna put her mark on every single square inch and little detail of the entire place. From the tables in the open area, to the garden area it is clearly Joanna. Things have gotten big for the Gaines Family but that doesn’t mean they don’t pay attention to the details.
  2. Parking can be crazy-Drive around a bit because there is not any designated parking for the Silos and it’s super close to the downtown area. I recommend driving around to the back side of the silos-much more parking there and just a small walk.
  3. Bring some a lot of money. Things are cute but things aren’t cheap. I recommend looking at their website before going and getting price points. There are many many things at the store that they do not carry online and yes you will want them so make sure you plan and budget ahead.
  4. Shop first, eat second. I had no idea there would be adorable food trucks inside the Silos property-everything from coffee and smoothies to crepes and sandwiches. The best part…..if you decide to shop in Magnolia Market there’s a coupon at the bottom of your receipt which can be used at each food truck. Score!
  5. It’s BUSY-BUSY! We went during the week and it was like we were sardines in there. I honestly thought it would be less crowded since we were there just after opening during the week-wrong. Apparently Saturdays are the worst-oh and not open on Sundays and Thursdays are the best but expect a crowd. The good news is they have lots of inventory.

Notice how in the panic of finding my Magnolia wreath the only pic I took inside had my thumb in it 🙂

It was about 2.5 hours from the Houston area and even though it was a drive it was worth it! Especially if you heart Joanna. Save that money and get yourself a Magnolia wreath!
