Continuing on about our spring break adventures, I want to share about our trip to Waco, Texas to visit Magnolia Market at the Silos. If you haven’t heard of Joanna Gaines by now I will fill you in real quick. Her and her husband, Chip, have a HGTV show called Fixer Upper and are very talented at what they do. They and their kiddos are also sweet as pie and will steal your heart. I stumbled upon their show during it’s first season and was immediately drawn to it. We were on vacation and the place had cable so I was getting an HGTV fix. I loved the show so much that from then on I started buying the new shows on itunes. Now that it’s been out for three season, you can catch some online for free and Netflix has the first two seasons available now. Anyways, after watching I came across this testimony from Joanna and that sealed the deal for my loyalty haha. So when we knew we were going to visit Round Top I looked to see how far it was to Waco and it was only two hours. We added that to our trip. It was a beautiful ride between the two cities. Such pretty farm land. We arrived at night and went to a hotel excited to start our next day with a visit to Magnolia Market.
It was very easy to find and is right in the downtown area, super close to Baylor University and other little vintage/antique shops and food places. I will say this though, there is not a ton of convenient parking. We got there at 9:30 am since we just didn’t have anything else to do and I wasn’t sure how hard it would be to find the place, etc. There was already a small crowd but still a good amount of parking in the parking lot behind the building. When we left around 1, the parking lot was packed and many people were walking from other nearby streets to get there.
By the time 10 am came they opened the gate by the road and the line was allowed to go up the ramp to the door. I turned around and the line was so much longer!!!! This was just about half of the line. I knew things were about to get serious. It really felt like waiting for a ride at Disney or something.
When you first enter if you look down at the floor you are greeted with the word welcome. It’s little details like this all over the store that you will have to keep an eye out for (especially when it’s crazy crowded) but add to the charm of the store and are so Joanna.
There are tons of beautiful displays to admire and draw inspiration from. You guys should have seen me trying to take a ton of pics before all those people made it through the door lol.Continue Reading
