If you're a fan of HGTV's Fixer Upper than you know exactly who Chip and Joanna Gaines are.

Actually, even if you aren't, chances are you know them anyway. The show catapulted them to stardom and made "ship-lap" famous!

The husband and wife team decided to end their show after five successful seasons, only to announce that they are launching a brand new network in a joint venture with HGTV’s parent company Discovery Inc., this summer.

If you watched the show, then you got to see the renovations of an old silo into Magnolia Markets.  According to their website,  Magnolia Market at the Silos is a shopping complex that encompasses two city blocks in downtown Waco, Texas.  There's even a delicious restaurant and bakery.

A couple years ago,  I got a chance to go on a trip to Dallas, Texas with a friend.  We were going to see a friend play some music, but I made us take a detour to Waco to actually see Magnolia in person.

It was massive and just as cool as you would imagine.  I looked everywhere for Chip and Jo but unfortunately they weren't around.  I got a chance to talk to some of the employees though, and they said they actually come in quite often and are exactly the same as they seem on tv, only taller!

They have even more going on now.  Joanna Gaines shared a sneak peak of the new Shops At The Silos.  According to yahoo.com, there will be six new cottages added to the property that will have lifestyle products and goods.

The best part is that even if you can't take a trip out to Waco, you can order some of these new products online now!
