Where To Buy A Stock Tank Pool

If you look at any of our stock tank pool pictures on our Instagram account or our Instagram account dedicated to stock tank pools, you will notice this is the question we get asked the most. Where can I buy a stock tank? And I get it, if you aren't a farmer, or this idea is new to you, you have NO IDEA where they come from. So we figured we'd write a post all about it to help you find one where you live. Because it largely depends on where you live.

From what we've found online, you cannot have a stock tank shipped to you. Unless you get a plastic one. They'll ship those. But if you want the galvanized metal stock tank, you'll have to find one in person. You may find someone local to you who might deliver for you, but for the most part, you need a truck or a trailer.

When we were looking to buy our stock tank, we were trying to find a place to buy a 10ft stock tank pool. But the biggest one we could find in person is an 8 ft stock tank pool. We could find a 10ft online but as you can imagine, no one delivers such a large item. But we know they exist! In general, you will be able to find a store that has the 8 ft. ones in stock, or who are able to order one for you.

Okay, so what stores can you search for a stock tank in?

Tractor Supply
This is probably the most widespread store and where most people get their stock tanks.

Co-Op
This is where we got our stock tank pool and I just discovered today that these stores are only in the south, with most of their locations in Tennessee. But likely you're state has a similar type of store.

Rural King
They have 110 stores in 13 states - their locations are concentrated in the south and mid east.

True Value
From our internet search we could only find that they sold a 6ft stock tank pool, but maybe that's the size you want. Or maybe yours has an 8ft stock tank. Definitely worth giving them a call if this is your most convenient option.

Craigslist
Maybe you'll luck out and find someone selling these on Craigslist. I will say, be on the lookout for rust and leaks when buying a stock tank. You do not want to start out with those kinds of problems.

Farm Supply Stores
Like the Co-Op mentioned above, each state probably has something similar. If you live in a big city, you're gonna have to do a little thinking. Where are the nearest farming areas to you? Google is your friend- so just look up closest farm supply stores. Also, small enough stores might not even have websites, so don't hesitate to give them a call before you head there.

Because stock tanks are used to provide water for farm animals, you are looking for places that sell that type of equipment. So if you live in a big city, you will have a harder time coming by one of these or you'll have to drive out of town to get one.

Once you've purchased your stock tank pool watch the video below on how to install one.

9 Tie-Dye Projects & Techniques


Since everyone has a lot more free time these days, it seems people are taking an interest in crafts and DIY projects. Who can blame them? We noticed that a blog post about tie-dyeing from 2014 was trending on our blog which inspired this round up. We give the people what they want! 

We went through a phase years ago where we dyed and tie-dyed literally everything. We loved it. As the years went on we started using less color in our dye projects and even started a clothing company where we hand-dyed all of our pieces.

We said goodbye to our clothing business a few years ago and packed up our many, MANY, dye supplies. So we have been surprised to see how dyeing things has come back in style again. Who would've thought?

We figured we'd bring all of our posts together in one spot so you can explore the many ways to dye your clothes and such! See below.

Supplies you may need:
(these are affiliate links)

- Dye
- Rubber Bands


2. Circular Tie-dye



4. Dyeing with coffee

5. Bleach Dip dye


6. Subtle pattern dip dye

7. Ombre dip dye (Follow this tutorial without the glue)

8. Tie-dye look with Sharpies


What's awesome about several of these DIYs is that you can use stuff you have laying around the house. If you don't have dye, use coffee or use bleach to reverse dye. This is really nice since we can't all just easily run out to the store and get supplies. Since you are stuck at home, you might as well make something! 

Thanks for stopping by :) 

48 Hours In Memphis Travel Guide

I've lived in Nashville for 9 years now and every time I drive back to Texas, I drive through Memphis. But I've never spent any time there! And it's been over 10 years since Casey last visited. That is, until this week. We didn't have any expectations and had a fun couple of days running around exploring the city. Let's talk about the things worth checking out!

WHERE TO STAY
First off, where should you stay? ARRIVE Memphis, hands down. We loved our time at this beautiful hotel! There was definitely a vibe going on. We arrived on a rainy day, but felt so cozy in the room. Every little detail was thought about when this hotel was created.

I mean, can't you see what I'm talking about?

If you decide you'd like to experience this cute place while in Memphis, you can get $50 off a 2 night stay by booking through our link here!

And besides the room, the lobby/bar area is impeccably decorated. In this space they have a coffee/cafe called Hustle and Dough and a bar called Bar Hustle. I had some delicious bread and pastries and of course, Casey had her coffee both days we were there. So definitely don't skip out on these places!

WHAT TO DO
The National Civil Rights Museum. This is joined with the old Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King Jr was shot and I highly recommend visiting here. Yes, the subject is heavy but the information is displayed in a way that truly honors the Civil Rights movement. You don't leave feeling sad for Martin. You leave feeling inspired. He was one man who walked in the will of God and left a legacy we can all aspire to. Some of the information is hard to take in because horrible things happened, but they did happen. It is crucial to be knowledgable of our nation's past and see its effects so that we can learn from our mistakes. MLK Jr's story and the Civil Rights movement are important. We learned so much from our visit here and I highly recommend stopping by if you are in Memphis.

This is the exact place where MLK Jr. was shot. Right behind the wreath.

Broad Avenue Arts District. We went to this area to eat some breakfast on our way out so we made sure to check out the area. There are also some fun murals on buildings.

We stopped in at Arrow Creative and Falling Into Place, both cute places for gifts and little Memphis memorabilia.

WHERE TO EAT
I know this must be what you've really been waiting for. On this trip we talked about how really when you travel to other cities, you really want to eat a bunch of good food. We did not make it to a BBQ restaurant as it was hard to find a place that accommodated celiacs. However, we found plenty more great things!

First off, dios mio, Longshot. It's a bar that has way above average food and lots of shuffleboard. We even tried our hand at the game, but it didn't last long. We weren't that great, but it was fun to try it out. They make their own sausages (we got one without bread) and have tons of sharable options. We got queso and onion dip and nothing disappointed. Oh and we both got a specialty cocktail- just go here. It's a whole experience worth having.

Bedrock is a fully gluten-free restaurant, but it's waffle selection makes it great for any person who loves breakfast. They have 20+ varieties of waffles! Casey was in heaven. I went the savory route and got a sausage and gravy waffle, while Casey followed her sweet tooth to a creme brulee waffle. She brought home a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit that was as big as your head. Fully worth it even if you aren't a celiac.

The Liquor Store. This place had a great basic breakfast, but let's be honest, we came for the decor!



This was a fun little trip and we can now say that we recommend Memphis as a place to visit. Especially if you live nearby! We love taking little trips that are in driving distance from Nashville and this is the perfect place for that. If you decided to check it out, don't forget that you can get $50 off 2 nights at ARRIVE Memphis if you book through our link. Happy travels!
