I’ve lived in Waco for a full year now, and have been all about seeking out the best home decor stores in the city for my clients. While I often visit the Dallas design district for trade-only shopping, I love being able to support local businesses and build relationships here in town.
Since bajillions of design-loving tourists are visiting Waco due to a certain HGTV show called Fixer Upper (like you haven’t heard of it!) I wanted to share some of my favorite places to shop in Waco. Sure, go to the Magnolia Silos while you’re here. It’s a great place to soak in the show’s vibe and enjoy a coffee and cupcake on their gorgeous lawn. Once you’ve grabbed your #Shiplap t-shirt check out some of these other fab design resources I love.
Honey’s Home + Style, 1700 Austin Ave – You want gorgeous, high-end furniture, lighting, and decor? Honey’s is your place. You’ll find stunning casegoods, colorful abstract art, and the most plush and inviting velvet accent pillows. They’re old-school – don’t expect to be able to take photos to share on Instagram – but have a great eye for luxe design finds.
The Findery, 501 S 8th St – Love love LOVE this place. (I’m hanging out in their light-filled upper level in the top photo.) Not only do they have rad furniture and decor with many of the tables and benches available to customize, they’ve also got great clothing, jewelry, and accessories. I always find something I love here. Located in Waco’s historic Percy Medicine Building, I happen to have insider knowledge that there’s a prohibition-era secret room in the basement. So rad.
Interior Glow, 601 Franklin Ave – Brand new to Waco, Interior Glow opened about a month ago. They’ve got a unique design perspective that I haven’t seen elsewhere in Waco. You’ll find a mix of gorgeous basics (like tufted linen sofas) and unique accent pieces (like the teak root, glass, and brushed steel coffee table in the photo above that I actually just purchased for a client).
Wildland Supply Co., 721 Washington Ave – Currently in the process of moving to a larger space on Washington Ave, Wildland Supply Co is temporarily closed. But it’ll be worth the wait, because Wildland’s curated collection of clothing, decor, and furniture makes you feel like you’re in the pages of a hip magazine. Plus, adorable owner Kate knows how to rock an Instagram feed.
Spice Village, 2nd St at Franklin Ave – A collection of shops, Spice has dozens of vendors selling everything from clothing to candles to decor. While you won’t find large furniture pieces here, it’s a great place to shop tabletop items, party decor, and gifts.
Cameron Trading Co., 618 Austin Ave – 36,000 sq. ft. of random antique goodness. As with any antique mall, it’s hit-or-miss. But you’ll find little gems like handcrafted accent furniture made from raw wood or hair-on-hide; refinished antique furniture; and weird little odds and ends that just make a room freakin’ fabulous.
If you’re a Wacoan – or just a devoted Fixer Upper fan obsessed with this city – I’d love to hear your go-to Waco home and decor stores. Pop over to the Lesley Myrick Art + Design Facebook page (and “like” us while you’re there) to let me know your favorite shopping sources.
