PNW & its grudge against the bumbershoot

Jump to last reply

Losing a long time landmark in Pike Place Market area this week- Bella Umbrella is closing. I always go in there and enjoy looking at the lovely creations, but I have to admit I wondered who actually shopped there. Turns out, not enough people do! I'm rather tempted to go check it out one last time, but my day off is going to be spent at a corn maze if weather allows.

I found the article pretty humorous. I am not a true rugged native apparently- I do own a great umbrella, although between the mist and wind, I rarely take it out and about here. I don't think I've ever found a rain coat with a hood to be uncomfortable.

Any umbrella fanciers here? Do you have a serviceable umbrella, or do you match your outfits? An umbrella only for traveling or is your trusty everyday umbrella your travel companion? Thought this might be a fun thread:) We discuss shoes, coats, and suitcases so often but I feel the poor umbrella gets overlooked!
