Last October, my friends and I took a 90 minute trip from Dallas and drove to Waco, Texas to see Magnolia Market. I really meant to get this blog done immediately but somehow life got away from me with the holidays, trips to New York, etc. etc. If you haven’t been there yet, here are some of the highlights in this spectacular place. My retail therapy really needed a therapist that day! Fortunately (or unfortunately), I was confined to a carry-on bag on my flight and I had to be good. We first shopped around the store … OF COURSE! It is set up so beautifully and you feel like Joanna has touched every inch of it. After spending some time in the store, all of us did find a few treasures to take home with us and I even bought a soft, comfy Magnolia Farms T-shirt to wear when I got home. I have come to the conclusion after traveling to various places that the best thing to buy is something you can wear. Trinkets come and go but hey, a T-shirt will always get worn and it fit in my suitcase. I did pick up a few other small items as gifts that would fit in my suitcase. The landscaping is just beautiful and made me wish I had a green thumb. If you have the chance, go there! Enjoy my photos of the day.
There are really two sections to the market. The first section is mainly the home decor section and the second section features Chip and his hats, T-shirts, etc as well as more home decor items.
Late in the afternoon we HAD to go get some cupcakes in the bakery! Yummy!
Because I’m a red velvet addict, I had to get one of those. I also bought a lemon-lavender cupcake to take with me. They were both awesome!
Probably my one regret was not purchasing one of these fabulous burlap totes. You can, however, buy them on-line. Hint, Hint!
