Fixer Upper is Over. Now What?

Last Tuesday was the end of a good run. HGTV Fixer Upper fans are sad to see that the series is over. We understand, but it's still hard to see a good thing come to an end. Joanna Gaines has made the hard decision of walking away from a good thing before when she closed her "little shop on Bosque", the first Magnolia Market, after the birth of her first two children. The shop was near and dear to her heart and Joanna continued to sell architecture, greenery and unique pieces out of her home {the flip that made them famous!}, a few times a year. Closing the shop on Bosque Blvd. wasn't an ending, it was the beginning of something greater. If you've ever visited the Magnolia Silos in Waco, Texas you will know that.

So what does that mean about the ending of the hit show Fixer Upper? Is it really the end of us seeing Chip and Joanna Gaines on TV?

Fixer Upper is Over. Now What?

I'm pretty sure this isn't the last we will see of Chip and Joanna Gaines. 

I was in Waco, Texas at the end of March and Magnolia Market was hopping! Just a few weeks prior, the yearly Spring at the Silos event had happened and the town of 100,000 people hosted 100,000 people visiting the market. 

You can still Visit Waco

Where to stay in Waco, Texas

More and more AirBnB's and HomeAway properties are popping up all around town because they need there aren't enough hotel accommodations. 
We stayed at a lovely home that was featured on season 5 of Fixer Upper. The Morrow Home was called The Real Fixer Upper and while it wasn't selected by the couple that it was offered to, it was drooled over by Joanna Gaines who said she felt "like a dog with a T-bone steak! Give me the t-bone steak!" 
You can find a handful of the homes renovated on Fixer Upper available to rent. Just do a quick search. I would highly recommend The Morrow Home! 

I've heard people lovingly refer to Magnolia Market as JoannaLand

Visit Waco and stop at Magnolia Market, The Silos Baking Co., Magnolia Table and the Magnolia Warehouse

You can not only visit Magnolia Market and the Silos property which includes The Silos Baking Co., a large lawn with plenty of swings, toys and seating, as well as a collection of food trucks and vendors to choose from, but now you can also visit that old shop on Bosque that now houses the Magnolia Warehouse.
You can also eat at the couples latest venture, Magnolia Table. The restaurant is beautiful and the food is delicious. Don't forget to stop at the Take Away for some fun goodies. My favorite is my new Black Oak Art coffee mug. 

Read the Collection of Books from Chip and Joanna Gaines

Not only can you read the Magnolia Story and Capital Gaines, but you can also order Joanna's new cookbook with the same name as their new restaurant, Magnolia Table.  Sounds like Joanna is also wrapping up a new design book too.

Chip and Joanna Gaines aren't done with construction just yet!

An update on the Magnolia blog also reassured us that the famed flippers aren't finished just yet with flipping and construction. Magnolia Design and Construction has been fixing up homes for nearly two decades and they aren't stopping any time soon! 
Not only are they renovating a few flip homes, they are also building 20 new homes in Waco. I can't wait to check them out!

Hearth and Hand with Magnolia for Target

A new spring line for Hearth and Hand with Magnolia was recently rolled out at Target, and from the looks of things, I think this won't be the end of the collections and partnership Joanna Gaines has with the one-stop-shop giant we all know and love.
Heck, it sounds like there is even a Magnolia kids {and baby!} line coming soon too!

Don't miss the Silo District Marathon

It's not too late to sign up to run at the Silo District Marathon. Chip Gaines will be running 26.2 miles and 100% of the proceeds will go towards the Brave Like Gabe Foundation that will help fund much-needed research on rare cancers. 
All that to say, this isn't going to be the last you see of Chip and Joanna Gaines. The show might be over, but I think there will be plenty of opportunities for you to get your Fixer Upper fix in. 
My guess is, Chip and Joanna Gaines will come back even stronger than ever in their own time, just like they did after they closed the little shop on Bosque. In the meantime, stay tuned!
