    And who could forget orange Tupperware, swivel chairs & The Brady Bunch ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Okie-Kan on May 25, 2023 at 10:29 am

    I knew someone with that same mushroom canister set.

  3. Claire Pierson on May 25, 2023 at 10:32 am

    i remeber alot of this video

  4. Whosthatgirl on May 25, 2023 at 10:32 am

    So funny! Linoleum everywhere. Mushrooms and eagles. Crock pots and cheese fondue. Let me add…macrame hangings and tupperware ๐Ÿ™‚ Good thing the music was incredible and still lives on as if it were yesterday.

  5. SmutnaJules007 rychwalska on May 25, 2023 at 10:33 am

    Problem with the ‘fondue’-everyone double dipping…yuck! They wouldn’t have been popular during a pandemic. Love your channel!

  6. Laura Franich on May 25, 2023 at 10:33 am

    This made me think of the Brady Bunch

  7. V Stu on May 25, 2023 at 10:36 am

    Worked for GAF Corporate Office in the 70โ€™s but no discounT on my 1974 purchase! I still have my wood piece w eagle but I turn it around not to show eagle now. Its a sewing box which I use for junk bin buT iTs pretTy.

    That was my decade. I graduated High school in 1975. We had an avocado green fridge!

  9. Dcyphrz on May 25, 2023 at 10:37 am

    We had a metal edged kitchen counter and a brown fridge/stove. Our neighborsโ€™ appliances were green.

  10. YochevedMiriam Russo on May 25, 2023 at 10:39 am

    Yup! That was our first kitchen, in the first home we bought. Only difference was, my crockpot – used five days a week! – didnโ€™t have the removable center. Even that floor pattern looked familiar – thanks for the memories!

  11. Pronker Pronker on May 25, 2023 at 10:39 am

    5:22 This is my coffee canister – from my darling mom’s estate, and I gave a whole set to her about 1975 of which this is the last survivor – treasured piece in my cupboard. Thanks for posting!

  12. Jim D on May 25, 2023 at 10:40 am

    It was sheet vinyl that was popular in the 70โ€™s, linoleum was in the 50โ€™s and 60โ€™s.

  13. 5610winston on May 25, 2023 at 10:42 am

    1:36 Pretty little Bedlington terrier in the lower right. Was that a trend or just an accessory?

  14. Jackilyn Pyzocha on May 25, 2023 at 10:42 am

    We had an island in our kitchen in our A-Frame!

  15. Christine MacLeod on May 25, 2023 at 10:43 am

    Not linoleum, cushion floor. Linoleum was thin and tough. Cushion floor was thick and soft but easy to clean and fairly durable. Much better on the feet and back than tile.

  16. Johnn Hudson on May 25, 2023 at 10:45 am

    Great video, although the repetitive cadence of the narrator is maddening to listen to.

  17. TheValkryie on May 25, 2023 at 10:45 am

    5:19 ….and, the mushrooms are back today!

  18. SMART ForTwo on May 25, 2023 at 10:46 am

    I know I’ll spell it wrong, but my mom had macremay plant hangers EVERYWHERE!!!!!!

  19. Some Buddy on May 25, 2023 at 10:46 am

    Oh my gosh! The avocado or yellow Fondue cheese pot! The red chocolate dip pot! The advent of set it, leave it, and forget it Crock Pot! Macrame out the wazzoo!

  20. David on May 25, 2023 at 10:51 am

    Linoleum is making a comeback. Also, I, too, enjoyed mushrooms in the 1970’s.

  21. David Smith on May 25, 2023 at 10:51 am

    We might not give high marks to the style of the 70’s kitchen but, at least, the appliances wouldn’t crap out within 5 years like today.

  22. Nates Nana on May 25, 2023 at 10:51 am

    Fondue!!! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

  23. Alan Yoder on May 25, 2023 at 10:51 am

    Not linoleum. It is sheet vinyl. Big difference.

  24. Diane Walker on May 25, 2023 at 10:51 am

    I’d love to have that set of mushroom containers in my kitchen today. I think they look gorgeous

  25. Kimberly A on May 25, 2023 at 10:52 am

    Have the floor still…not easy to clean and the shutters in the windows and the wallpaper. Harvest Gold Fridge is downstairs running like a charm.

  26. Valley of the Rogue on May 25, 2023 at 10:53 am

    Houseplants are still relevant today, not forgotten.

  27. Paul Redinger on May 25, 2023 at 10:53 am

    I still use my crockpot. Great kitchen tool. I was 7 in 1970. I remember a lot of these cheesy things. Still makes me cringe. My parents decided to have a lemon yellow kitchen walls. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

  28. Jackilyn Pyzocha on May 25, 2023 at 10:57 am

    What about Tupperware? The lettuce bowls, that "burp" and the ice tea, the popsicle forms.

  29. Pntngbrn on May 25, 2023 at 10:58 am

    Even in the 70s I thought avocado green was ugly!

  30. Kathy Wiseley on May 25, 2023 at 10:59 am

    Oh my. Well. There was also patterned carpet on the floors in kitchens. ๐Ÿ„ Mushroom dรฉcor was big. But so was ๐Ÿ“ strawberry motifs. Macramรซ was everywhere and you generally made the hangings yourself. Corningware was still very popular as Corelle which came out in the 70s. Fondues with cheese weren’t nearly as common as oil to cook your own chunks of meat in. Or melted chocolate to dip marshmallows or angel food cake in. Electric can openers were also very popular by then. Microwaves we’re being introduced. The were twice as big as they are now but only had half the cooking surface inside as we have now.

  31. Freddysteady on May 25, 2023 at 10:59 am

    Turn up. Some Tull. Hymn 43

  32. Spindle & Swift on May 25, 2023 at 11:00 am

    The narrator twice refers to the elaborately patterned flooring as being linoleum. Those floors were "Congoleum", a brand of vinyl flooring. Linoleum is a completely different material.

  33. CoasterMan13 on May 25, 2023 at 11:02 am

    I think the mushroom plates look really cool, but I’d eat off of beautiful flower plates instead of eating off of those.

  34. Marie Constantia on May 25, 2023 at 11:04 am

    1:08 I initially thought โ€œHow did they get a photo of our house?โ€ Lol

  35. EJ Harrop on May 25, 2023 at 11:06 am

    Thank you and I would add a Sunbeam electric fry pan to the list. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  36. TangledNana on May 25, 2023 at 11:06 am

    As a hold over from the MOD late 60โ€™s, our brand new 1971 double wide mobile home sported a LIME GREEN kitchen, it was a sight to behold!

  37. MED 63 on May 25, 2023 at 11:09 am

    Enjoying your videos! Thank you!๐ŸŽ–๐ŸŽ–๐ŸŽ–๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

  38. Cathy on May 25, 2023 at 11:12 am

    Those were the days

  39. Diann T on May 25, 2023 at 11:12 am

    Great video, but you missed the Corning Ware casserole dishes!

  40. Mike payne on May 25, 2023 at 11:12 am

    I want to go back in time

  41. Kelly Heise on May 25, 2023 at 11:14 am

    Life was so goodโ€ฆโ€ฆโ™ฅ๏ธ

  42. Lavenderflowers Fall on May 25, 2023 at 11:14 am

    I grew up with 70’s and 80’s stuff in the 90s. Most of our walls for panel, the we did cover over the kitchen floors with tiles but there was floral linoleum under it lol we had a dining bar I kept a shag carpet for a long time. Honestly we just kind of went for a short shag carpet it was kind of nice I’m not a big fan of complete linoleum. It was a 70 style ranch House and we planted holly bushes, tomato plants in other things around. I also really like the tiger lilies in our front and back yard and could lay with my cat out on the grass I will try honeysuckle but you had to pull the stem back and we would ride around the neighborhood without helmets.

    Of course we had more variety with TV and stuff and but what you described in the seventies is there somewhere to the 90s

  43. Susan on May 25, 2023 at 11:15 am

    Thank you, love it! ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿฅ ๐Ÿฅ โ˜•oh gosh, I miss it so much

  44. J P on May 25, 2023 at 11:17 am

    looking back I was 14yrs old and had no ideal how lucky I was!

  45. Kyle on May 25, 2023 at 11:18 am

    What about those green pink tubs sinks lol

  46. cheri teleri on May 25, 2023 at 11:19 am

    OMG that wallpaper (the 1st one) – I had the exact same pattern as window shades in my bedroom – late 60s ๐Ÿ˜…
    I also had that white & gold linoleum in one of my apartments in the 80s๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    I also had rattan furniture in the 70s thru the 90s (still have my old rattan rocker on the porch)
    I still use vinyl tablecloths, & I will never get rid of my crockpot ๐Ÿ˜…

  47. Linda Merchant on May 25, 2023 at 11:23 am

    I at times miss the 70s80s90sโค๏ธ

  48. Missy Faith on May 25, 2023 at 11:23 am

    I’m gen x. Throughout my house growing up majority of it was orange,yellow, green and brown. It was so ugly. By the time I was in elementary school my room was the only room that wasn’t those colors. I can’t stand any of those colors to this day. Everything was so hideous. My mother had horrible taste in decorating a house. Guess I was lucky to develop my own style and taste when I started elementary school. I really don’t want the colors orange, yellow, green or brown in any potential house I decide to live in if I have a choice. They are so ugly.

  49. terryrollins1973 on May 25, 2023 at 11:24 am

    There was alot of vinyl now that i think about it ๐Ÿ˜‚

  50. L Morter on May 25, 2023 at 11:24 am

    When I go to my in-laws house I get 70’s flashbacks. They have never updated since they built the house.
