I first discovered Pare Umbrellas via Oh Joy and Oh Happy Day.  I am seriously considering a purchase of the Sorbet style in Cantaloupe. Without a car, I can justify such an expensive purchase, especially since it will be used for transportation purposes.  If I buy it, it will be the first umbrella I’ve ever owned. I grew up in one of the rainiest places on earth (Olympia) so not owning an umbrella used to be a source of pride. But, with all this walking, I will be happy to own one now. I better get on it because our rainy season is scheduled to begin SOON!

  1. dutch on sweet juniper once compared baby strollers with umbrellas, i.e. disposable cheap things that you don’t mind leaving at the restaurant. that’s how we’ve operated for the past few years.

    if i owned something as lovely as this, however, i would keep a close watch over it, that’s for certain!
