I am in Waco, Texas. And if you haven't seen the show Fixer Upper then you are wondering, "What's she doing in Waco?". But it's a great town and I love it here because I am huge fans of Chip and Joanna Gaines. I love their show Fixer Upper and one of my favorite places is the Magnolia Market and Silos. It's kind of like "my Disneyland".
So this week I am taking you along on my fabulous trip.
The first thing I need to mention is I am participating in an Instagram drawing for a $1000 gift certificate to Magnolia. That's $1000 dollars to spend in their magnificent store! If you want to be eligible you just ned to go to my new instagram account @my100yearoldhome and click on the photo seen above. Then follow the instructions. It will take you about three and a half minutes to complete the loop. But it's worth it because they have so many awesome thing to buy at their online store! Plus, I really want one of my friends to win!
I arrived in Waco yesterday and went straight on over to the Magnolia Market and Silos. It was the last day of their Spring Silobration and I really wanted to check it out. Apparently, so did the entire state of Texas. As you can see from the photo the event was a huge success! I have been to Waco twice before and I can tell you that I have never seen this many people here. Never!
After spending about an hour at the Silos, I spent the rest of the afternoon visiting all of the antique stores seen on the Fixer Upper Store (such as Junque in the Trunk and The Junkey Monkey). There were so many wonderful and inexpensive finds that next time I come here I need to plan on driving a uhaul truck home!
Today I went back to Magnolia Market and Silos to take some photos so you could see how cool this place really is. And since it's closed on Sunday there weren't quite so many people!
I also found the restaurant Chip and Joanna bought which will open this summer. I think it will only be open for breakfast!
I am staying at the Harp House which is owned by Clint Harp (he is the amazing carpenter on the Fixer Upper Show) and its awesome! I will share photos tomorrow.
In case you are wondering why I am in Waco, I am here hosting six wonderful artists for my Art Marketing Boot Camp. It's an intense three and a half days but we sure got off to a great start and had a lot of fun today. I can't wait for the rest of the week!
