Market Umbrella

Having just been introduced to the wonderful blog Southern Hospitality, this is my first time participating in Today's Thrifty Treasures and linking to Rhoda's weekly party. My "treasure" is this 9 foot market umbrella that I found at a neighbourhood garage sale this weekend for $5. It is in great shape, on a hardwood frame, and goes with our deck furniture nicely. One of my best all time garage sale finds.

Now, if I could only muster up some good weather so we could use the thing. We had a weekend of snow and rain and had to bring all our plants inside, but that didn't stop me from setting the umbrella up! I'm hoping June will bring the sunshine.

Thanks for popping by.


  1. Steph, welcome to the party!! Great deal on that umbrella. Looks so good with your table & chairs. Did you see the one that I found last weekend, umbrella and heavy iron stand for $30, a great deal too. It inspired me to get busy on our deck and make it pretty.
