My Visit to Magnolia Market


Super observant Stacey from Poofing the Pillows guessed correctly.  I did
indeed stop at Magnolia Market and it was even better than I expected!
It's a huge facility with lots of indoor space and a great outdoor space too.
Very family friendly and exudes Texas hospitality and fun.




The twin silos are big and rusty and wonderful and this adorable 1953 Willy's Jeep
in red (my favorite color) is parked outside.  Trust me, my heart was going pitter
patter because I have always, always, loved this vehicle!




The only vehicle that comes close to this perfection is a vintage pick-up!




Love the front entry too.




I was greeted at the front door by this charming mantel and vignettes.
Simple and whimsical too.



This first area is dominated by beautiful flower and cotton stems and all kinds
of wreaths.  I could have easily bought every single one!  After seeing all of
this I know just how I want to decorate my potting shed and I already have
discussed my plans with David.  Can't wait to get started.

On a side note, prior to to arriving in Waco, David and Bentley and I were
up in Throckmorton talking to an oil man there.  On the way to the
well site, we went past acres and acres of cotton fields.  I was so tempted
to ask the farmers if I could just pick a few stems ;-)  Of course I did not,
but it sure made me want to plant some.  David joked and said "look
away".  That was his successful attempt at a bit of levity :-)




There is a big Scratch and Dent room.  Trust me, if you visit and see 
something you want, grab it, because it won't be there for more than a minute!




Even the husbands seemed to be enjoying themselves.  Maybe Chip's
outgoing and fun personality is rubbing off on them and husbands have
decided that remodeling can be fun!



Olive buckets and big glass jugs and wooden trays everywhere.





Another great mantel display.



The vibe of this place is warm and friendly just like Chip and
Joanna.  They were not there, but the staff is large and they are
very welcoming and helpful.  

I wish I could have spent more time there, but we still had a long
drive back to Victoria.  Next time I go I will allow much more time
to spend not only at Magnolia Market, but also at the many other
shops that are in the area.  Come back tomorrow and I will show
you what I purchased.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

    1. No ~ I was lucky to get to Magnolia Market. We were on our way back to Victoria after a 1,250 mile business trip with stops in Pearsall, Monahans, Odessa, Midland, Abilene and Throckmorton, Texas.

  5. Ooh Susan, what an exciting trip, visiting the Magnolia Market would be the highlight, if only I lived closer :)
    Chip and Joanna are such a fun-loving couple to watch on their show, I truly admire their building and decorating skills.

    1. The only way I could drag myself away was that it was already 3 pm and we had another three hour drive ahead of us to get back home.

  9. well, from the time I walked with you thru the door and saw that adorable mantel, I started hyperventilating and am just now getting my breath back....I just LOVE places like that....when daughter and I went to Canton a couple yrs ago, I didn't catch my breath for the 2 solid days we were there. You can bet I will see if she will go with me to Waco...thanks for telling me about it. xoxo
