Do you guys know where I can buy one of these monstrosities?

I'm doing early Christmas shopping, and about a month and a half ago I made a comment to the potential new miss imp13 about how odd and awkward these bubble umbrella deals are. She then said how badly she wants one. Go figure. So, along with the Dwight Schrute bobblehead I already got her, I'm going to get her one of these dumb things too;






My card is pretty much maxed so I'd prefer to use cash, meaning I need to find a place that sells these things. Also I'd rather see the thing before I buy it. Any ideas where to find them?

I see these all the time in handbag shops

I quite like them but I'm not fussed on the one with the black trim in that photo. I like the pink / red one. I think they look much nicer and it's usually what I see other girls with here.

Interesting. Didn't realize dome umbrellas were a fashion trend. I got my umbrella at the dollar store and it's lasted several Lake Effect blizzards.

Looks like there's quite an assortment on eBay. I also like the pink one better.

You can also do a google search for 'bubble umbrellas'. Many matches there!

How do you think I found the photos?

But I suppose I'll try a handbag shop or something of that nature. Her favorite color is yellow, so one with yellow trim would be dandy.

Cool, I've been wondering on where to buy one of those umbrellas as well.

Yay, I'm off on a hunt as well for one of those now.
