as i’m writing this guide it is pouring down rain here in brooklyn and all i can do is yell at the television for not voting that kooky girl off of . i mean seriously, seriously? not even in the bottom three? if alexis had to go, megan should be on her way out. ac suggested that she’d be perfect for a band like the and right now i’d like to see her leave american idol for something more like that. so as i try to calm myself down i’m focusing on the sound of the rain on our fire escape. the rela sound of water steadily hitting metal has finally brought me back down to earth and gave me an idea for today’s under $100 topic: umbrella stands.

many of you have been requesting a guide to umbrella stands for a while now so i figured this would be a great place to focus my budget-attention this week. interestingly, many of the cool umbrella stands were over $100, so i’ve included a few (just a few!) stands that are around $150, but the majority are still safely under $100. i don’t know why anyone would need to pay more than $100 for an umbrella stand, but if you want to- there some pretty interesting ones out there. in the meantime, i hope you’ll enjoy the selection.
