My Day at the Magnolia Silos


On a rainy, yucky November day, I took a day trip to the Magnolia Silos with my friends Kayla and Rachel. I first had the opportunity to shop with Joanna two years ago, when Susannah took me to the Magnolia Home show in Chip and Joanna's farm house. Their product really is amazing and it's really hard to rein yourself in when you know it's an out of the way spot. We had such a great time!


We parked by the pumpkin patch, which was super cute and well done. When I saw the sign with the arrow to the entrance I was genuinely GIDDY to go check it out!


We turned the corner and there it was!!! WOW! I will note that we were surprised at how small the whole thing was. Photos and video make the silos look HUGE. They weren't small, but not as big as what we imagined. Even the building itself was beautiful. The Magnolia logo is just so well done, I think!


Walking in the store I was on sensory overload.. wanting to take tons of photos but also grab goodies! I had my eye on a few things ahead of time, and brought home a few surprises.. including two things for Ben and one for #sweetbabystrader. There was incredibly well done calligraphy everywhere.. so beautiful!






There was even a little corner of the store for 'man stuff' haha! So cute! 


I wish I had grabbed a photo of every single vignette.. everything was just so beautifully styled! 


I was tempted to buy a candle.. but was ultimately swayed by all the other goodies, including a comfy long sleeve Magnolia Farms tee shirt which I'm actually wearing right now.  I did purchase one of the vases shown! I'm not sure if I have the medium or the large but I'm obsessed with it!



Gorgeous setups everywhere!


I've been super into distressed mirrors lately and would love one in our home!


They even had these cute maps of Waco!


And this is looking out the back onto the food truck area.. I imagine that on weekends this fun place is hoppin with sweet families! 


It was such a fun day and all of the employees were so incredibly friendly, eager to hear where we were from. We even signed a guestbook upon entering the shop. It's so sweet to see success come to such a genuine family. Rachel's mom's friend was actually one of the first customers at the new shop.. when her and her friends walked in they were greeted by Chip, Joanna and their parents. They asked if they could pray with them and then paid for their entire purchase. That story just made me love them even more!!!

Ben thought this item was weird but people are always asking where it is at large gatherings, and I thought this was cute!
