It may seem like a trivial thing to own, but an umbrella stand is beneficial to all parties involved. The vertical storage means any residual water left on said umbrellas are dripped into a contained area and it also allows them to dry in a convenient place. I had to get rid of my last umbrella because the hinges started to rust and perpetually smelled like mildew from setting it down still wet. Don’t be like me. Get an umbrella stand.
