This Travel Tip Tuesday, I’ve got everything you need to know about your trip to Magnolia Market at the Silos! If you’re planning a trip to Waco and have any interest in Chip and Joanna Gaines or Fixer Upper from HGTV, this is a must-do! And in case you wondered, they really do plant magnolia trees at all their projects!
Chip, Joanna, and their whole team have made Magnolia Market and everything around their Silos property a pleasant and fun destination for everyone. You’re greeted at every door by friendly Magnolia employees who smile and welcome you. Everyone seemed happy to be working there and happy to help if you have questions! They even have an employee on staff whose sole job is to take pictures of you and your friends and family at the #milestomagnolia sign in front of the Silos!
If you like Jo’s style, you can find it all here! Lighting is important–so you can get beautiful lanterns! How can you use unexpected objects to decorate your own home? Take a Joanna’s lead and put it on the table! Not sure how to cleverly decorate your kitchen? Paper veggies might be a good option! How does she have fresh flowers all year long? They’re incredibly lifelike faux flowers! My mom mostly wanted to visit Magnolia and the Silos to get some decorating ideas. And Joanna has some great ones!
The Grain Barn
You know the Gaineses are not fans of wasting space. They’ve done an incredible job of making the whole Silos property functional, including expanding the Magnolia Market into the historic grain barn behind the store. Back here you’ll find more faux flowers, mugs, t-shirts, metal signage, and more!
Also inside the Grain Barn, make sure you turn to the left as you walk down the stair so you don’t miss Chip’s Corner! I’ve heard tell that he’s getting his own shop inside one of the Silos one of these days, but for the time being, you can find Chip’s words of encouragement and fun dude stuff here!
Shipping via FedEx
Yes, they truly have thought of everything! Many of the products they sell at Magnolia are large, heavy, and difficult to transport if you’re flying or simply have a small car. So what do you do with that huge sign from Jimmy Don or that oversized decorative lantern? Ship it with FedEx right from the Grain Barn!
Heading to Magnolia on a weekend? It will be incredibly busy, so be prepared, but also look for Joanna’s mom! She sometimes comes to the shop to talk with visitors in the long lines!
Magnolia Seed & Supply
While you’re on the property, don’t forget to check out Magnolia Seed and Supply! Ever heard Joanna mention her kids’ fairy gardens? She has some there for you. Want to channel your inner plant lady and try your hand at growing some herbs and flowers? You can pick up some seeds here!
