Magnolia Market a hit

Old silos at Magnolia Market are icons in Waco, Texas.

Who would imagine old silos would be a magnet for a fantastic business idea and thousands of guests a day? I love the idea to salvage items from the past and re-mission them.  

Are you a fixer-upper enthusiast?  No doubt many have seen HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” series with Chip and Joanna Gaines.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when we planned a visit to the Magnolia Market during our fall 2018 trip out west but I was pleasantly surprised. 

“Magnolia Market at the Silos, commonly called Magnolia Market, is a shopping complex that encompasses two city blocks in downtown Waco, Texas. It is marked by two 120′ high silos, built in 1950 as part of the Brazos Valley Cotton Oil Company. The grounds opened to the public in October, 2015.” (Wikipedia)

Let’s take a closer look and let the images speak for themselves.  However, I’ll provide a separate post for the bakery.

Blessings along the Way!

  1. So this is Chip and Joanna’s business? WOW, I know them from the reno show and she often goes into that Magnolia entry … or is her shop in there?
    Over here our street artists paint local characters on the silos and now people do drive tours around the small towns appreciating the huge works of art!
