Thrifty Things Friday #5

TTF @ Melissa's Antiques

Welcome to the next installment of Thrifty Things Friday!  As many of you are reading this, I am preparing for yet another sale.  But, I don't have to go too far.  Everything just has to be unpacked from boxes and placed on tables in my garage.  I am trying to get rid of as much as possible, because I'm trying to make room for some new pieces of furniture in my house.  Plus, as I told you, I am trying to earn money to pay for my next summer class (CHECK!) and another big purchase on the horizon.  No it's not a house.  At least not until I find another one that fits my personality!  But, it does have to do with all this junkin' I've been doing.  I'll share more later.

Last week I won a give away hosted by Helen and her Daughters.  Look at the fun goodies I got!

The goodies are sitting atop a pair of vintage suitcases with my initials (so you know I HAD to have them) that I bought about a year ago.  The picture in the background was a find from the US 40 garage sale.  It is of a marching band from Indianapolis.  I was a big ol' band nerd in high school AND college.  So I have a soft spot for old photos like this.

So let's get on to TTF!  Let me start with the featured post from last week's TTF:
