If you follow me on instagram you’ve probably seen a few sneak peeks from my trip last weekend, today I get to share all the details with you! Over the weekend my mom, sister, and I made the trip to Waco, TX to see the famous Magnolia Market!
As we drove up we spotted the Silos right away. It was like going to mecca as tons and tons of women were parking and flooding into the market.
I had so much anticipation and was so excited to actually get to be in this place I had seen on tv so many times! I am also a huge Chip and Joanna fan and have loved them even more since getting to hear them speak last year.
Every detail was so well thought out and had so much charm and character. I have always been a sucker for black windows and I just couldn’t get enough of the exterior of the market.
Currently the Silos aren’t actually used for anything, but they provide an awesome rustic backdrop to it all.
We arrived about an hour after the market had opened and it was busy but we didn’t have to wait in any lines to enter. How awesome is that huge barn door behind us at the entrance?!
Once we walked in I was like a kid in a candy shop.
Joanna’s signature candle was everywhere and both my sister and I grabbed one.
How adorable is this egg crate tulip display? I’m thinking that I might just have to pay a little more attention to the color of egg cartons that I buy so that I can replicate it!
She had lots of faux flowers for sale and they were all so real looking. I grabbed two of those red tulips.
I LOVE dark dramatic walls and these display walls were no exception.
She had her signature Magnolia leaf wreath for sale along with tons of T-shirts. While I didn’t have room to bring home a wreath I did snag two T-shirts.
I also loved this big wood ABC sign.
The entire market was filled with women who were all just as excited to be there as we were!
After paying for our purchases we headed outside to see the rest of the market. This big grassy area in front of the Silos had tons of lawn games available for families to play with.
The garden shop was closed, but over the fence we could still see how adorable the shop and garden are.
By the time we left there was a line to get in, making us thankful that we had gotten there early!
On our way out we checked out the bakery that will be opening soon called “Magnolia Flour”. Again I just LOVE those black windows!
Next we drove over to Harp Design Co. to check out his shop.
Clint Harp’s house is right next door to the shop. It was one of the flips from the first season and it was neat to be able to see it in person!
After walking into his shop I couldn’t believe it, but there was Clint Harp just standing there and chatting with guests! It wasn’t too crazy or busy at all, and I was able to talk to him and get a picture with him! He was so friendly and welcoming and was just as genuine as he seems on tv! We talked about how he is going to be making his first trip to North Dakota next month to speak at the Design Conference.
His shop was so charming and perfectly styled. I loved this natural tables cape and it inspired me to create something similar for Easter!
How about that wood bead wreath?! I just love how simple and natural it is.
On our way out my mom and I had to get a picture at his sign.
Then while driving out of town we were able to see the original Magnolia Market on Bosque. Currently it’s vacant but it was still fun to see where it all started.
When we got back to our hotel my sister and I had to take inventory of all of our purchases. It was a feat that we got them all into our suitcases!
That’s too cool that you got to go there! I’m jealous. It looks like an amazing place
I was so cool! You should plan a trip sometime! I think it makes the perfect “girls trip”! I love your new blog!

Looks like so much fun! Are you from Texas? I’m Texas born and raised but live in South Carolina now.
It was awesome! No I was born in Minnesota and have mostly always lived in the Midwest! I actually liked Texas a lot more than I thought I would!
Was that the actual picture of Clint’s house that you took while you were there? The reason I’m asking is the landscaping looked different.
When you go to magnolia market archives, Season 1 episode 5 you can see the landscaping is not the same!
Yes that was the picture I took while I was there! I didn’t notice that. You’ve got a good eye! Maybe their tree didn’t make it? I can’t remember if the little path is still there or not, I may have just been so close that you can’t see it, or it may be gone. You’ve got a good memory though!
Thanks for sharing your tour. Chip and Joanne are my new favorite people. I love their story and her design style. I’m hoping to make the trip to Waco as well but I probably will need to drive as my purchases won’t fit on a plane. Chicago to Waco! A fun girls road trip.
Oh if I would have driven it would have been dangerous! I would have filled my car!
Very cool! I’m in NY so I’ll probably never get there myself! So fun to see it, thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much for sharing! ?
I live in Beaumont and I am planning to visit family next weekend in the Dallas area. Was Joanna or Chip at the store during your visit? I’m considering staying at the “Shot Gun House” for a night. According to an article I read, it’s only a few blocks from the Magnoila.
Oh that would be so fun to get to stay there! I heard that lots of Fixer Homes are available on AirBNB. Neither of them were there but Joanna’s mom was working th store. Have a wonderful trip!
Thank you for sharing your trip with everyone. I really enjoyed it. I think my favorite was Clint Harp’s Design Co. I love the tables he builds for Chip and Joanna on Fixer Upper. He just loves wood and seams to be able make just about everything. He is definitely gifted. The other man I would like to visit is the man with two names together (so sorry, can’t think of his name, must be having a senior moment) who makes the signs out of metal. He uses a computerized machine to cut out the letters. Joanna put a lot of his signs in her work on Fixer Upper. Again thank you for sharing your trip with us. Just so kind of you. God Bless
