I saw a "something" in a local thrift-shop, yesterday. It was in a long grubby, sort of molded carry-bag. Couldn't get carry-bag off to see it's condition, with the arm that has 18 stitches, but I could see it was a patio umbrella. The part I could see looked really good. Got it home, sliced the bag off with knife & lo & behold the umbrella was just like new! Very cute with rainbow stripes. A real find at $3.99!.
