Literally, when I use my umbrella, people always stop me and ask me where I purchased it. Function becomes art with Wendy’s designs! All of her designs are beautiful, but I particularly love this seashell design. It is absolutely gorgeous and, especially with the built-in fan, it is perfect for anytime you need shade (or, of course, rain protection) in a coastal environment. Looks like a Ferragamo scarf!
The fan umbrellas are great! I bought one that was custom-designed with my dog's photo on it, but I think I may need a seashell one now for my trips to Florida. I love all of the designs and the fan is an added bonus. So clever!
