I didn’t have plans to do any blog posts about our week long trip to Texas, but after going through photos recently, I changed my mind. We visited Magnolia Marketplace in Waco for a couple reasons, but mostly because my friend loves it and I had never been. Confession time! I actually have never watched a single full episode of Fixer Upper, and while I know who Chip and Joanna Gaines are and their style, I didn’t really know what there was to offer at Magnolia, but was up for the adventure.
I am SO glad we went.
You don’t have to know a thing about their empire to enjoy this beautiful place! The property is just gorgeous! It is such a fun place to gather, shop, and eat. I ultimately decided to do this post because there’s got to be someone out there, like me, who doesn’t know what to actually expect with a trip to Magnolia. So here we go…
This is the actual store on the property that sells their merchandise. There are some things that are a bit pricey, but worth it since the stuff is gorgeous. They also have a shipping center so it’s no holds bar as far as suitcase space goes 😉
These are the landmark silos on the property. As for right now I’ve heard they are empty with possible plans in the future. Right underneath/between them, as you can see in the picture, there are shaded picnic tables.
I did not expect there to be so many, well really any, places to eat. They had a variety of what you could compare to food trucks there, with different cuisine options, drinks, and desserts. And again, as you can see in the picture, there was a nice shaded area with spacious picnic tables.
Magnolia Seed & Supply (and gardens)
This little area of Magnolia was the cutest! Our girls watched them tending the gardens and one of the gardeners even came out and cut them the cutest little bouquets ever! In the garden area there is also a shop where you are able to buy garden supplies.
Silos Baking Co.
This is the bakery on the property and almost always (according to everyone I know who’s traveled there and my experience that day) has a line out the door and along the side of the building. We didn’t stop in on that particular day, but from my friend’s recommendations, it is definitely somewhere to stop!
Magnolia Warehouse Shop
This shop is off the property, about a 10-15 minute drive from the Silos. It isn’t open all the time, but when it is it has damaged goods and out of season items for sale at a significantly reduced rate. This stuff was just as cute and beautiful as anything else they sell and if they’re open when you visit the area, I HIGHLY recommend shopping there.
Well that’s a wrap! Short and sweet, but I hope helpful if this is somewhere you’re looking to travel. Like I said, I’m SO glad we took the time to experience this. Fixer Upper fan or not, it’s a beautiful place to spend the day!
