We had a fun and busy day today. We visited the famous Magnolia Market, Chip and Joanna Gaines's store in Waco, Texas. Fans of HGTV's Fixer Upper know that the couple undertook their biggest rehab project ever when they acquired a sprawling downtown Waco property that includes two huge grain silos and a 20,000-square-foot barn. Since its grand opening in 2015, the complex has quickly become more than a store. It's a major destination, where thousands flock every week.
Location was key when Chip and Joanna were looking to expand their store. Joanna was charmed by the rustic look of the silos at 601 Webster Ave—as well as the idea of fixing up a Waco landmark. But it was the property's proximity to the couple's kids' school that really got her thinking; after all, Chip and Jo have always been adamant about putting family first.
Outside, the silos are an irresistible photo op: those iconic grain silos. You can't actually enter them, but they are certainly impressive. According to the Magnolia website, the couple has big plans for the structures. Chip was set to open his own store in one silo. For now, he has "Chip's Corner," a small section in the main showroom with a handful of Chip-endorsed items I took a picture of Jerry in front of some of his merchandise. We had a great time shopping and highly recommend this one to our journal readers. Check back later for more from Texas.
