    Those marble bookends were a great find! 😊

  2. Cindy on July 4, 2023 at 12:31 pm

    Nice channel. Your husband is hysterical how he “acts” surprised at the “reveal” lol

  3. i be me on July 4, 2023 at 12:31 pm

    Thank you for this video. Please do more. I find that one of the best things about buying at thrift stores is that most likely, no one else will ever have the same things you do. Unlike buying from a retail store. Thrifting makes you unique in the coolest ways. 😁

  4. Diana Garza on July 4, 2023 at 12:32 pm

    On my City goodwills and Habítat for humanity are so espensive😢 They charge prices like if it was rooms to go store🤦🏽‍♀️

  5. Sara McClernan on July 4, 2023 at 12:36 pm

    The copper pot was such a good find.

  6. Constant Sorrows on July 4, 2023 at 12:38 pm

    That rug was stunning! I don’t know where u are but your Thrift stores have way better things then our Thrift stores here

  7. Nijel Noel Network on July 4, 2023 at 12:38 pm

    Omg that dinning room table!!!!!!

  8. Kristine Cornell on July 4, 2023 at 12:38 pm

    I’d love if you showed us what you thrifted & how you’d style it at home.

  9. lisa Farnsworth on July 4, 2023 at 12:40 pm

    I totally loved this video! I am inspired to go thrifting now!

  10. Mitchell Seyna on July 4, 2023 at 12:40 pm

    Great items you showed!!!
    I will look into books closer now, and take the sleeve off

  11. JUURI Art TV on July 4, 2023 at 12:41 pm

    I totally forgot about removing the dust covers from books! What was I THINKING?! You always have such valuable advice! Thank you!

  12. Vee H on July 4, 2023 at 12:42 pm

    That is not a dough bowl but a tub used for annual winter prep for food. It is used to chop up a freshly killed pig. Sorry to be graphic.

  13. vidishapatel13 on July 4, 2023 at 12:43 pm

    Your are true inspiration Kristen. ❤️

  14. Katherine Paluch on July 4, 2023 at 12:43 pm

    Wonderful. Longer in the Consignment Store and Antique Mall. I can listen to your calm explanations of everything all day long!

  15. Valerie Geib on July 4, 2023 at 12:44 pm

    You have to be careful thrifting dishes. A lot of the older ones have lead in them. Large amounts of lead.

  16. Teresita Costales on July 4, 2023 at 12:45 pm

    Wow luv luv your thrift videos. More more of your thrift videos.

  17. Lady Webz on July 4, 2023 at 12:47 pm

    Coco better leave that baby alone and let him SANG! 😂 Dentist where? This is PURE TALENT, It’s a rarity in 2023❤❤😂😂

  18. j on July 4, 2023 at 12:47 pm

    u kinda look like jasmine chiswell

  19. K Fergus on July 4, 2023 at 12:49 pm

    Cut pictures out of the book and frame it

  20. Elena Benedetti on July 4, 2023 at 12:49 pm

    Love your videos and this one even more!!!

  21. Dimitrios Fotopoulos on July 4, 2023 at 12:51 pm

    Unfortunately we dont have thrift stores in Greece. Some of the stuff you showed us are gorgeous!!!

  22. Susan Julie on July 4, 2023 at 12:54 pm

    Love the antique mirror with the “squares” in it! It would look so special above your fireplace. Great find! You have such a great taste. 😊

  23. Lisa Saliture on July 4, 2023 at 12:54 pm

    My gosh, every outfit you put on is absolutely adorable on you but I wish I could have the body to go along with the clothes like you have:) love your video that you made. I am remodeling my farmhouse that we bought a year ago and this video makes me so excited to go out there and look for some really great antique pieces to fit the style!

  24. Palani Krishnan on July 4, 2023 at 12:54 pm


    What’s the best Software to create interior design model into Virtual Reality Model ?

  25. William Timmons on July 4, 2023 at 12:54 pm

    *..Nobody can become financially successful overnight. They put in background work but we tend to see the finished part. Fear is a dangerous component, hindering us from taking bold steps we need in other to reach our goals. you have to contend with inflation, recession, decisions from the Feds and all. I was able to increase my portfolio by $289k in months. You have to seek for help in the right places*

  26. Peace Rose on July 4, 2023 at 12:56 pm

    Where are these shops?

  27. LuLuLuxe Boutique on July 4, 2023 at 12:57 pm

    My local Goodwill is overpriced. They charge more than dollar store charge for dollar store stuff! 🙄

  28. Wanda on July 4, 2023 at 12:58 pm

    You found unique items nice and pretty thank you for the video

  29. Marthe Stapleton on July 4, 2023 at 1:01 pm

    21:26 thank you, Kristen! My favorite things were the games, books, where you suggest taking off the covers, the decanters, wine, glasses, and candle sticks! I have to start thrifting.

  30. Kristen McGowan on July 4, 2023 at 1:01 pm

    HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE! After finishing my friends apartment makeover, I wanted to share some of my thrifting tips with you and hop around to different thrift stores to show you where to find the best pieces!! I hope this gives you some ideas while thrifting for your home!♥🏡

  31. Donna Compton on July 4, 2023 at 1:02 pm

    Love everything

  32. Eileen Patterson on July 4, 2023 at 1:04 pm

    Hi Kristen, Just found you recently but enjoy all the storage tips. I’ve implemented quite a few so far so keep up the good work. You’re doing great! 👍

  33. Trying to get rich in 1 year on July 4, 2023 at 1:04 pm

    Omggg I love those gold framed paintings!

  34. Lena Ghougas on July 4, 2023 at 1:06 pm

    Amazing shopping 🎉

  35. Emilee on July 4, 2023 at 1:06 pm

    I had no idea we were from the same area. My jaw dropped when you went to the antique mall and I recognized it.

  36. H R on July 4, 2023 at 1:09 pm

    It’s good to see what’s out there. I typically don’t see much that’s my style. However it’s good to see the contrast!

  37. Josie Lancaster on July 4, 2023 at 1:10 pm

    Awesomeness thanks

  38. Jane Harden on July 4, 2023 at 1:11 pm

    The clothes are really cute but you might want to size up a little. They are to small

  39. Julia Cottingham on July 4, 2023 at 1:11 pm

    Who is the maker of the tea kettle?

  40. river view on July 4, 2023 at 1:13 pm

    Ha – a little misspelling of Primitive – on the sink tag.

  41. Gloria Primeau on July 4, 2023 at 1:13 pm

    Love this video

  42. Alexa Rowe on July 4, 2023 at 1:13 pm

    That Drexel sideboard!! Omg you have to go back and get that! It’s amazing

  43. Ross Mery Tuero on July 4, 2023 at 1:16 pm

    I love your video ♡!!!

  44. CFW on July 4, 2023 at 1:19 pm

    ReStore in Silverthorne Colorado is a must see!

  45. Susan on July 4, 2023 at 1:19 pm

    Where do go. I never see thrift shops with those type of things.

  46. Carleen Jones on July 4, 2023 at 1:20 pm

    Thank you for this vid. So much fun. Please keep doing these.

  47. Victoria Hughes on July 4, 2023 at 1:21 pm

    Just a reminder to test all vintage crystal and glassware for lead. Almost all contai s lead and isn’t safe.

  48. Scoobydoo-Forever on July 4, 2023 at 1:22 pm

    That yellow cover for the first book is so pretty. I love it

  49. Ashlyn Hale on July 4, 2023 at 1:25 pm

    Just discovered your channel and it’s so inspiring! I have a large book collection and would love to see your take on an at home library that’s affordable. 🙂

  50. FitnessPhreek on July 4, 2023 at 1:25 pm

    I loved it! Thanks for sharing
