I have been waiting to go to Magnolia Silos for over a year. In part, because it’s super crowded during the times I can attend and the other part was because I wanted to go with my mom. She was in town for Bre’s recital so we finally got the opportunity to go. Here’s a bit of what we did.
Of course, we took a selfie in front of the Silos.
We got a picture from further back by this gentleman who was coming out of Magnolia Market. We got to talking and found out he grew up in Mt.Vernon, Illinois and had just come back from visiting his sister in McLeansboro! Small world.
Then we went into the store. I liked going in their to get ideas because many of the items were a bit overpriced for my taste. For example, her cookbook was thirty dollars. I bought it at Walmart for eighteen!
As you can see from this picture it was still a bit crowded.
I snapped pictures of several books, from gardening to cooking and, of course, home decorating, that I would like to purchase later.
After our trip around the store, we went outside to the Silos where there is a big, open space for kids to play and adults to sit and chat. They also have several food trucks to pick from. We purchased some tea from the Alabama Tea truck- with Bre getting a Southerner (sweet) tea, mom and I got the Mason-Dixon (half sweet and half unsweet), and Veah got water. Hey, she doesn’t like tea…
They also have a garden area we explored.
This was great for me because it helped me to get some good ideas for my garden. Texas weather is so rough and making the raised beds helps the plants. Also, the rope and upper part help the tomatoes to grow the way they need to.
What better for the last stop on this portion of our fun day than to go to the bakery?
It’s been so long I don’t even remember what cupcakes we all got. Mom purchased a cinnamon roll which was delicious. It all was. Better than our Sprinkles experience, that’s for sure. It was well worth the wait.
If you’re headed to Waco, this is a must stop on the journey. You can hang out and enjoy the day with little to no cost or bring a few dollars and pick up some delicious food and great things for your home. Your choice.
