    A $150 for that piece of artwork is too much money In the good wills That I shop at that piece of art would go for 20 bucks…. You should See the beautiful art I have in my house….

  2. Patti Canning on March 13, 2023 at 9:02 am

    I love that vase & the bowl did have a yellow color to it.

  3. frehiwot gurmu on March 13, 2023 at 9:04 am

  4. Heidi Fox on March 13, 2023 at 9:04 am

    Is it just me or are thrift stores charging way more since the crafters and influencers started?

  5. Dora Mason on March 13, 2023 at 9:05 am

    I have an older version of those small thick glasses that I got from a packhouse flea market over 35 years ago! I use them all of the time for desserts (think banana pudding, jello with fruit & Cool Whip, and of course mini ice cream sundaes!

  6. Lily on March 13, 2023 at 9:06 am

    This was so fun to watch

  7. Michelle Blazsovics on March 13, 2023 at 9:06 am

  8. Kristen McGowan on March 13, 2023 at 9:08 am

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE♥ I hope you’re having some relaxing down town before the new year! I had the urge to get out thrifting & look for some special pieces for hosting for the holidays! Come along with me to all my favorite thrift stores!!

  9. Valerie Geib on March 13, 2023 at 9:09 am

    what city was the Restore in? I have never seen one with so much great stuff. Our local ones are filled with junk.

  10. Donna Mayfield on March 13, 2023 at 9:12 am

    The glasses at 3:08 would make great dessert or fruit cups.

  11. Joy Soul on March 13, 2023 at 9:13 am

    when she is starting this video she’s sitting still in the car. If I see her blogging while driving I’m clicking away immediately. I’m sick of crazy drivers on the road. Doing everything but driving.

  12. M Sharma on March 13, 2023 at 9:14 am

    Wow..where is this place? i’d love to go

  13. drishti valecha on March 13, 2023 at 9:17 am

    Great video and beautiful finds. Some of the vintage or aged furniture spooks me or looks scary in the night. But that’s just me lol.

  14. karen saville on March 13, 2023 at 9:17 am

    The mirror defently….

  15. Bryan Sprague on March 13, 2023 at 9:18 am

    If you never get around to actually making pasta, those machines make very nice shredded paper for gift bags or Easter baskets. I love your style.

  16. jerry on March 13, 2023 at 9:18 am


  17. KAT on March 13, 2023 at 9:20 am

    I love thrifty shopping it’s fun to find things youve been wanting at a great reduced price! Thanks for sharing and thanks for new ideas 👍🏼👍🏼

  18. Donnakay Wain on March 13, 2023 at 9:21 am

    The mirror is beautiful….hope you bought it 😊

  19. Chase Holcomb on March 13, 2023 at 9:23 am

    I’ve been thrifting books a lot lately, I never thought to look at used books but I found a thrift shop that sells all their books for 25 cents😍

  20. Julie Brown on March 13, 2023 at 9:26 am

    Yes to the mirror with the squares!

  21. Luzviminda Layar on March 13, 2023 at 9:26 am

    Iloveit dear….thnkZ god blesss u alwys..

  22. Dorothy Bunot on March 13, 2023 at 9:27 am

    Nice big Pasta Bowl put it in the middle and let everybody go for it

  23. Bibi Majeed on March 13, 2023 at 9:28 am

    Its a Beautiful mirror. ITS UNIQUE. A bit expensive I would say

  24. bigjarn on March 13, 2023 at 9:28 am

    @3"00 the are not wine glasses but are stemmed pudding, jello, ice cream, cups

  25. Lillian Martin on March 13, 2023 at 9:29 am

    I could spend hours shopping in stores like this !

  26. Diane Munson on March 13, 2023 at 9:29 am

    Love the mirror it’s gorgeous I don’t really mind the grid in the mirror itself makes it kinda unique💜

  27. Andrea Stockford on March 13, 2023 at 9:30 am

    So fun. It’s a bit odd/sad to me that you’re buying books for their colour though.

  28. Mandy on March 13, 2023 at 9:31 am

    You may want to consider looking for a chimney cabinet for your hallway. They are great for small spaces.

  29. lorraine gartrell on March 13, 2023 at 9:32 am

    How did you miss the Silver gray grate could’ve been used for wall art. I snatched it up in my head. Lol. Thanks

  30. Cathy Hermanson on March 13, 2023 at 9:32 am

    At our house, books are little treasures, Yes, I use them for height by placing them under something. But, as a librarian, I only buy books that I have read or want to read. When people turn their spines around to see just paper, I go nuts. How do you find your treasure? I LOVE BOOKS more than anything. We hav books in every room. My mother just did not get it. She would purchase me a random book and expect me to read it? Umm?

  31. hey ellie on March 13, 2023 at 9:32 am

    Those wardrobes are deep because they’re not wardrobes – they’re TV cabinets we’ve all donated over the last 15 years :-).

  32. Bibi Majeed on March 13, 2023 at 9:35 am

    Once upon a time I had the most beautiful punch bowl with 12 glass cups. Very expensive. The bowlhad the hooks yo hang thw cupa. I lwnd it to a friend. She broke my bowl with a long crack and a few of the cups.She brought it back in the box and never mention a word to me. I happened to not use it for a while however when i did go to use it. Thats when i realize she had broken my crystal very expensive punch bown anda few of the cups.

  33. Tina Christiansen on March 13, 2023 at 9:36 am

    Loved watching your thrifting adventure & I have to thank you for your giving me the idea of how to use my vintage sewing box. I have one very similar to what you had seen at the Restore & wasn’t sure where I would put it, but it’s definitely going into my mini mudroom to hold hats & gloves, etc. Thanks!!

  34. Mamie on March 13, 2023 at 9:41 am

    The glasses you picked up are dessert glasses

  35. Cindy Rae on March 13, 2023 at 9:43 am

    Um, those are dessert glasses, not wine glasses.

  36. ROLANDO MORENO on March 13, 2023 at 9:44 am

    Great tip on the books , grab the mirror, definitely looking for a habitat for humanity shop. I found a 1950’s coffee table value $1,500.00 and a Romeo Tamanti coffee table value $40,000.00 for $75.00 each at Salvation army.

  37. Lady DawnRai on March 13, 2023 at 9:46 am

    I had a punch bowl for years and never used it once even thought I entertained all the time so I finally gave it away to Value Village. FYI….wait for the mirror to go half off and then grab it

  38. Jessica Mcpherson-Dailey on March 13, 2023 at 9:49 am

    Omg that sitting table and mirror is gorgeous

  39. Vlrissolo on March 13, 2023 at 9:52 am

    I think if you turn a bowl upside down in the middle of the Punchbowl it would be beautiful with some fresh fruit. If you don’t use an internal goal you just need lots and lots of fruit! I love the idea of a clear fruit bowl. I started doing all my kitchen canisters and such in clear glass. Seem to look sleeker and goes with any decor

  40. Heidi Bourscheidt on March 13, 2023 at 9:54 am

    I believe with Habitat for Humanity you can make a lower offer. I know I was able to do that before. Can’t hurt to ask. I think that mirror would look beautiful on a mantle. I’m watching this 3 weeks out so hopefully you got it.

  41. Bibi Majeed on March 13, 2023 at 9:55 am

    Very beautiful punch bowl. A punch bowl is a very useful item.

  42. superlibbyanne on March 13, 2023 at 9:55 am

    The prices in your habitat for humanity was disgusting over prices, charity or not .

  43. Susan Baker on March 13, 2023 at 9:56 am

    That’s not the date on the bottom of the vase. It’s a signed and numbered piece. It’s #5 of 76. Not May, 1976.

  44. Dawn Westerbeck on March 13, 2023 at 9:56 am

    Love this beautiful video, thank you. But in Ohio our restore is not like this

  45. Edna Puckett on March 13, 2023 at 9:56 am

    Those stemmed glasses also make nice dessert glasses.

  46. Jacqueline McKinney on March 13, 2023 at 9:57 am

    Hi. I just saw your vlog and loved it. What state are you located in? It appears your Habitat For Humanity is much larger than the ones near me in the Northeast and the furniture selection in the one you visited is awesome. I would not wait on the gold mirror. In my area a mirror like that would go for much more and have been gone by now. If you like it get it. Just saying! I own only period piece antique furniture and I love the unique designs. Each piece is insured separately. I hope I receive more of your vlogs on YouTube. I did subscribe. Happy New Year!

  47. Vivienne Hayes on March 13, 2023 at 9:57 am

    It is SO GOOD to see a (pretty) young person without (heavy) black eye makeup!

  48. rodrila07 on March 13, 2023 at 9:58 am

    damn where is this? the restore alone is worth a roadtrip 🙂

  49. Joyce Bright on March 13, 2023 at 9:58 am

    Where are you located?

  50. Renee Korgie on March 13, 2023 at 9:59 am

    You can use your punch bowl for other uses – chips, fruit or put ice in it and chill Champagne/ wine.
