This past weekend my hubby and I decided it was time to take a road trip, so we hopped in the car and drove to Waco, TX to see what Magnolia Market was all about. Had we done our due diligence before we left we would have known that it was the big Baylor vs. OU weekend and that rain was headed right for Waco.
As we parked the car and started walking up to Magnolia Market, my jaw dropped, the line of people wrapped around the building and down the street for miles.
However, waiting in line wasn’t too bad when you have these beautiful Silos to admire.
How fun is the outside of the store? The barn doors are to die for!!
As we approached the doorway, I couldn’t resist getting my picture taken with the birthday boy!!
Once we walked through the entrance, we were greeted by some fun store displays.
Chip’s Corner was where all the men were hanging out… including my hubby!
As we walked outside to the beautiful garden area, it started raining. I was so sad because as much as I wanted to just sit and enjoy the free hot chocolate and the beauty of the garden we had to run to the car so we wouldn’t get drenched. Thank, you JoJo, for giving out free ponchos. 🙂
So I know you are dying to know if I bought anything. Although I thought the store was charming, I didn’t see anything I just had to have or wanted to wait in the super long line to purchase. However, you must understand that I do a lot of shopping and attend the same wholesale markets JoJo does, so I have seen most of the items JoJo sells in her store and can often purchase the same items at a wholesale price. I’m looking for the unique fun finds, not the Magnolia wreath that everybody has.
The good news is that I didn’t leave Waco empty handed!!! I found this lovely store in this fabulous old limestone building called Honey’s Home+Style on 17th and Austin Ave. This store if filled with beautiful antiques, unique finds, and they also specializes in interior design services.
The minute I walked in the door, I loved everything I saw. icon-heart
I was smitten by this beautiful display of Mercury Glass hearts.
In fact, many of the dark purple and orange hearts came home with me. I also found some fun Cavallini vintage style wrapping paper that I had to have. I plan on turning them into hanging posters. See my Vintage Style Hanging Poster post for the tutorial on how to do this.
Even with the rain and the large crowd from the football game, this road trip was a fun little getaway.
I can’t wait for the next one!!
