Thrifty Things Friday #24 & Giveaway Winners

TTF @ Melissa's Antiques

Welcome to the next installment of Thrifty Things Friday!

First off, I'm sorry to everyone who reads this lil ol' blog of mine.  I've been swamped.  So much to do at the day job.  Working diligently to complete my MBA.  Buying for the booth.  Selling Christmas on Etsy and Pyrex on Instagram.  I need a break!

So, I totally forgot to announce the 2 winners of the giveaway.

Linda @ A La Carte

I did buy a truckload of goodies last Saturday, but with the busy schedule, I haven't had time to dig through them.  I'm hoping to get to that this weekend.  Here are a few sneak peeks.  If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you've already seen these.

Last week I also asked for your help finding something for my upcoming wedding.
I finally got my first 4 for the project.  I hope to have more coming in the mail!

The feature from last week's party is...

Deanie's Stash

Feel free to use this button on your blog if you've been featured.
So, let's get on to the party!  Let me kindly remind you of the guidelines...

  1. only submit "thrifty" finds/DIYs/furniture redos/recipes posts/articles.  Do not submit a "for sale" post - this is not a link up to sell items.  Do not submit a link to your homepage, etsy shop, etc.  Submit a direct link  (permalink) to the post/article.  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, Pinterest, and Instagram. I like to show different content than what's on my blog on these 3 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. Hey Melissa, thank you for hosting while your life is cray cray! I know the feeling, being in school, working full-time, and planning a wedding. Joining the party, and I also have some jewelry I will try to sift through this weekend and let you know what I find in the line of what you're looking for! Take care of yourself during these stressful times!

  2. It sounds crazy but remember its only temporary! Things always get better :)

  3. I really do not know how you accomplish everything you do in just one week. You must have some magical stamina powers. I am so excited about winning the giveaway. Thank you for hosting!

  4. I hope you have lots of storage for all of the "tonnage" that you buy. I really am envious of all you find and amazed that you can deal with it all! Good luck with the wedding plans!

  5. Congrats to Donna and Linda! Love your four new pins--the bouquets are going to be just beautiful. What fun you're going to have this week-end going through all your treasures. Thanks for hosting, Melissa!

  6. Congrats to the winners! I love the 4 new pins. I have a question about the pins. Do they need the pin back on them. I have some that are missing that part. I want to send you one but not sure which one(s) until I know if they need the pin. Thanks for the feature!! I was so surprised when I saw it.

    You found some amazing stuff! I am trying to get all my stuff stored and organized for winter. Right now it is a jumbled mess!

    Hugs, Dianne
