With the downpour we had yesterday I decided to invest in a pretty umbrella. So today on my way home from work I stopped in at the Umbrella Shop on Pender. I spent about twice as much as I would normally spend on an umbrella, but ended up with a gorgeous one that will last a lifetime (they do repairs) so long as I don’t lose it, and supported a local company. What more can I ask for? They even have some handy umbrella facts listed on their website if you still aren’t convinced.
This interest in buying a quality umbrella came from the embarrassment of the handle falling off an umbrella on me the other day. Never again!
