The Market goes to Waco!

This past week I was lucky enough to cross a trip off my bucket list.. Magnolia Market! We had planned a buying trip for the store in Dallas, Texas so decided to take the hour and a half drive to Waco for a day before it started. Once my family heard about our trip my two aunts and two cousins decided to join in on the fun. We all flew into Dallas on Monday night and immediately hit to road to Waco. We arrived late and went straight to bed so we could wake up early to go to our first stop.. Magnolia Table!

Magnolia Table opened it’s doors in 2018 as a full service restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. Before arriving in Waco I did some research and found out the restaurant does not take reservations. None of my family members, including myself, are morning people so it took us some dedication to get out of bed at 6:30am! Once we arrived there was only a 45 minute wait! Most of the blogs and online reviews said wait times are usually a minimum of 2+ hours so we were lucky! There was a gift shop at the restaurant so we spent our wait time exploring the property and of course buying some Magnolia Table souvenirs. From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were all in awe of the beauty of the property. Everything about our experience was amazing from the atmosphere, to the service, and of course the FOOD! I ordered the avocado toast which is one of Joanna’s specialties and it was to die for! While in the restaurant my creativity was going wild from the design of the menu to the farmhouse style.. it all screamed Chip and Jo! I would definitely recommend making stop at Magnolia Table while in Waco, TX!

Our next stop was of course Magnolia Market and the Silos! Walking up to the Silos was like a dream come true. It was exactly as amazing in person as it is in TV. We noticed the line at the Silos Baking Co. was short so of course I jumped right in line to get my cupcakes. If you know me, you know I am a cupcake fanatic and have them everywhere I go. The cupcakes from The Silos were definitely one of the best I’ve ever had!

After cupcakes we went into Magnolia Market! Inside the shop they were all set up for spring with lots of florals and spring decor. A lot of the items for sale were pieces found in homes on the show and it was so fun to shop all the beautiful farmhouse decor. The back room of the shop was enormous with a kids section, chip’s corner, and all things Magnolia!

After shopping we headed to the garden! The tulips were absolutely beautiful as we walked through the fresh florals and garden boxes full of plants! We also stopped into the Magnolia Seed and Supply while visiting the garden area. I could have spent hours in this area of The Silos!

After exploring, we decided it was time for lunch. Surrounding the lawn of The Silos are lots of amazing food trucks! They have a large variety of unique and delicious foods to choose from. It was a beautiful sunny day so we all grabbed some lunch and enjoyed it on the lawn while soaking in the beautiful atmosphere. One of our favorite items we tried was this drink straight out of a fresh watermelon!

As we were walking to our car, a man stopped us and asked if we wanted to do a Waco Tour. Half way into the conversation Becky said, “You look really familiar.. Were you on Fixer Upper?” The man then told us he was “Waco’s Most Eligible Bachelor”. Who could say no to him?! So of course we decided to do the tour! This fun tour of Waco took us around and taught us a little more about the city. Did you guys know that Dr. Pepper was created in Waco? They also took us to the famous coffee shop Common Grounds and the ice cream shop Heritage Creamery, both featured on the show. Our favorite part of the tour was the eight Fixer Upper houses they took us to! It was fun seeing these beautiful homes in person. A few of the homes we saw were The Shotgun House, The Mid Century Modern House and German Schmear just to name a few!

While in Waco we also checked out a few other shops famous to the area. The Findery was right down the street from The Silos and had a lot of fun Farmhouse decor to shop. There was beautiful furniture, gifts, decor, and also a cute section of boutique clothing!

Another shop that we loved was Spice Village! This shop is home to 60 boutique shops under one roof. It reminded us of The Market on 4th with a lot of handmade and local items. They had something for everyone from clothing, gifts, decor, food and so much more!

Of course we had to stop by Harp Design Co! A few years ago Becky and I went to Fargo to listen to Clint Harp speak at the Design Conference and became huge fans! His shop was filled with some of his handmade furniture, decor pieces and also handmade candle sticks. If you remember his episode on Fixer Upper, his house is located right next door! I loved this house on the show but it was even cuter in person!

My first trip to Waco was everything I hoped it would be! I absolutely loved every second of it and cannot wait to go back. After chatting with some of the staff and locals they said the best time to go is Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to avoid the crowds. We also learned there was quite a few of the homes featured on the show that are now being rented on Airbnb! They said some of them are rented out for the next two years so you better start planning! If you have any questions about our trip, stop into the store.. Becky and I would love to chat with you!!

4. Next, you will head over to our planting station. Here we will have rocks and dirt to plant your pot. The fun part about doing it at the store is you can be as messy as you want and not have to worry about the clean up!

Depending on the size of your pot we will have a potting fee that includes all the supplies you need for your succulent garden.

5. Last but not least, is personalizing your piece! We will have a variety of rocks and moss to jazz up your pot and make it special to you.

Welcome to our blog!

McKennaJoPhotos-26.jpg

Here it FINALLY is… The Market on 4th now has a blog! We have been so excited for this day to come and we can’t wait to share with you lifestyle tips, diy posts, and so much more! I wanted to start off by introducing the store and what we’re all about. 

Rewind back to three years ago before the store was open. Minot was in need of a creative place for makers to sell their handmade goods and a local shop that our community could be part of. When the store first opened it was a small group of seven women with a unique idea. Three years later we have expanded to over 45 makers who sell their items in our store. We specialize in home decor but also have a variety of unique gifts, baby and kids items, and our newest addition is an amazing clothing boutique. I’m guessing you’ve heard the phrase “Shop Local” right? Well here at The Market on 4th that’s what we are all about. Want to know what it feels like to have someone support your small business? Every time I sell something I do a little happy dance inside! I know this is true for every small business owner and maker out there! 

Over the years we have held events such as our Spring and Fall Flea where we give back to the community by donating a portion of our admissions to local organizations in Minot. Throughout the year we also host Shop Hop events and our big Home and Lifestyle Workshop where we team up with other local businesses. We bring these events to you guys to get you inspired and to allow you to use your creativity while shopping locally. We are always growing and can’t wait to see where 2019 takes us! 

If you haven’t attended one of our workshops you are missing out! These events are great for a girls night out to relax, sip a glass of wine, and use your creativity. Each month we host around four to five workshops with a variety of projects for you to choose from. Whether you are into sign making or jewelry making we have a workshop for you! Want to sign up? Check out the workshop link on our website, our Facebook page, orEventbrite.com to sign up. 

With all of our support through the years we want to thank all of our hard working makers, our customers, and the community of Minot. Is there something you love about our store or something you want to see at the store that we don’t have? Send us a message. We love to hear from our customers! Now that you know more about us stay tuned for more blog posts… you won’t want to miss them!
