Singing in the Rain: Marimekko Umbrellas

I hate rain. I wanted a new umbrella and guess what I found: authentic Marimekko "Unikko" poppy print umbrellas and one with the Marimekko signature stripe:


$40 Unikko Auto Open/Close Umbrella


$40 Unikko Auto Open/Close Umbrella


$40 Piccolo Auto Open/Close Umbrella


I think I'll get the red and pink one — a bit of cheer to brighten gloomy days.

I love the pink & red one!
Do you know if they're selling it anywhere other than ebags.com?

I couldn't find other places in the US offhand. Perhaps a local Marimekko concept store may carry them as well
