If you can’t get enough of Joanna and Chip Gaines – and we know you can’t, Kansas City – don’t despair. The wildly popular stars of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” have launched a quarterly magazine called The Magnolia Journal and it’s on newsstands now.
The cover of the inaugural issue features Joanna and Chip posed in a barn near a decked-out Thanksgiving table. Features inside include a glimpse of what will be on the Gaines’ Thanksgiving family dinner table this year as well as the following:
▪ Joann’s 10 seasonal favorites including her favorite album, perfume and gift ideas;
▪ Easy ways to add holiday touches to every corner of your home;
Never miss a local story.
▪ Recipes and entertaining tips to ensure your guests feel welcome.
Four hundred thousand copies of the fall 2016 issue are available nationwide at major retailers such as Target, Barnes & Noble and Walmart, as well as online at magnoliamarket.com and meredith.com/magnolia. The price for the first issue is $7.99. A quarterly subscription is $20 for four and $30 for eight.
The Magnolia Journal is just one more facet of the Magnolia brand which includes “Fixer Upper,” the Magnolia Market in Waco, Texas and its website; a vacation rental called Magnolia House; and the Magnolia Home line of furniture, paint, textiles and wall coverings which are sold everywhere from Nebraska Furniture Mart, Restoration Emporium in the West Bottoms and Nordstrom.
Their expanding empire explains why the Gaineses will not be returning to Greater Kansas City Home Show in 2017. Jonathan and Drew Scott of the hit HGTV show “Property Brothers” will be the star attraction at the March 17-19 event at Bartle Hall.
During this year’s show, the area in front of the main stage at Bartle Hall was standing room only, with thousands of spectators eager to see the Gaineses, who are married and have four children.
