Black Friday- THANKSGIVEAWAY winner

Black Friday- the biggest shopping day of the year. I'll was at the shop all day for a HUGE wedding gown sale. No joke- lots of these samples were up to 80% off! Did you spend the day shopping for Christmas? Are you a die-hard who hits the stores at 4:00 AM? I've done the midnight madness, the early bird sales, I've even ventured out later in the day hoping the crowds might have thinned. Only once did I ever really feel it was worth the trip and that was back when I was in college. Since then, I've been disappointed- either the prices weren't good enough to justify getting up that early, or the crowds were just unmanageable. Regardless, I was happy to be on the other side of it at the shop today. It certainly wasn't the insanity of the "Running of the Brides," but it was busy and we sold quite a few sample gowns.

But that's not why you're checking the blog today, is it? Nope- you're here to find out who won the coveted THANKSGIVEAWAY prize- this "Autumn Kiss" necklace by Etsy artisan Tina Tarnoff:

I will email the winner to notify that person. If I do not hear back from him/her within 48 hours, I will select a new winner. 

I have used the number generator to determine the winner  and it is (drumroll, please)....

MELANIE!!! Congratulations, Melanie! Your comment was randomly selected as the WINNER! I will email you to confirm your mailing address and this necklace will be yours! 

On another note- I wanted to reply to several of the comments that were left on the THANKSGIVEAWAY post, but I didn't want to post comments to do it for fear of messing up someone's chances of winning when I did the random number generation. So, I'll address them here instead!

1.) Melanie- Thanks for the kind words about my Etsy Shop- you'll see a new item in it soon that's very similar to your scarflet! 
2.) Speaking of your scarflet- please feel free to send me a picture of you wearing it- I'd LOVE to post that on the blog! Yay! 
3.) Jenna- I love the idea of using the "Autumn Kiss" cards as wedding invites, or even for an engagement party or a shower- I'm going to have to steal that idea! Or at least share it with my brides at work!
