Thrifty Things Friday #1

TTF @ Melissa's Antiques

Hello and welcome to Thrifty Things Friday!  I am your new hostess, Melissa!  I want to again extend a thank you to Diann and Linda for being the wonderful previous hostesses of this link up party!  I hope you guys still come over and party with us when you can.

I was lucky enough to go to a "Spring Cleaning" Warehouse sale last night hosted by a local antiques dealer that owns a few shops in Central Indiana.  It was a little bit of a drive, but well worth it.  I got there around 7PM and didn't leave until almost 9.  It was pretty late by the time I got home.  So, here's a sneak peek of what I brought home.  I'll show you close ups of everything in my next post.

So, in regards to TTF, nothing is going to change, besides your new hostess (me!).  However, I thought I'd kindly remind you of the guidelines...

  1. only submit "thrifty" finds/DIYs/furniture redos/recipes posts/articles.  Submit a direct link  (permalink) to the post/article.  Do not submit a link to your homepage.  Please only link up to 3 posts/articles.
  2. link back to the Melissa's Antiques home page or directly to this week's TTF link-up.  Feel free to grab the button above! Tell your readers where you party at!  Encourage them to join!
  3. follow my blog.  You can do that several ways: Google Reader, by email, Bloglovin', or any other platform.  I also have a Facebook and Pinterest.  I like to show different content than what's on my blog on these 2 platforms.
  4. go to the source of the photo to pin it to Pinterest, so that way the original author gets the credit.
  5. note that by linking your post, you give me (Melissa's Antiques) permission to share your pictures or content on my blog, Facebook, Pinterest, or other social media platforms.
  6. try to visit others who link-up to this post.  I will try to get to everyone's posts by the time for the next TTF.
If you do not follow these guidelines you will not be featured next week and/or your post may be deleted.


  1. Hi Melissa! Thanks so much for hosting :) I tried to put your party button on my blog, but your brag button comes up instead. Perhaps you pasted the wrong html? Have a great week-end!

  2. Melissa, congratulations on your first week. I have linked and browsed the other links. I had a problem with the party button not linking back to your post. I just added a link to your blog and it worked out.

  3. Hello on your first TTF!

    I will link up tomorrow. :)

    & yeah, I will take you up on the offer of you taking me shopping if I am ever in Indianapolis!

  4. So glad you were able to host this party! Diann and I are so happy to pass this on to you. Enjoy and I'll try to link up next week.


  5. Thank you for hosting this party! I look forward to coming back each week. Hope you are finding lots of goodies and can't wait to see what you found.

    Hugs, Dianne

  6. Congrats on your new party, best of luck with it!
