Patio Umbrellas?

My Patrio set umbrella broke from the top where it tilts- left it open during a windy night.. anyone know where I can find a good quality one to replace my current one?
Don't spend two dollars on drying clean a shirt. Donate it to the Salvation Army instead. They'll clean it and put it on a hanger. Next morning, buy it back for seventy-five cents.

Theres a guy on Kijiji selling canopy's and umbrellas out of his home in Pickering. I picked up a 10x10 pop up canopy for like $130 and the construction of it was far better than what you could get at any big box for that price range.

The photo in that Kijiji offer is identical to a standard cheap model sold widely by many online suppliers and stores for under $100 on sale (I got one for $99 at Jysk a few years ago). It's overpriced at $150. While there's nothing wrong with it, the canopy is a bit small, angle adjustment is awkward, and the canopy colour fades badly within a couple of years. The hardware is adequate, but it's not likely to last more than 5 years.

Thanks for the heads up! I’m looking for a cantilevered umbrella so I might pick one up from him.

Wayfair has a good selection and the reviews are helpful, but many are back ordered.

Costco has some market umbrellas right now for decent price. I think it was $160 but not positive.

Wife tells me our umbrella out at the cabin took a trip in the wind and 4 ribs broke. I'm hoping to repair with an inner sleeve and some bolts, or perhaps some angle aluminum on the exterior.

Do you have some rib repair tips?

I have repaired ribs before but it's a lot of effort and totally not worth it unless it's a good quality umbrella. I once replaced all the ribs in one umbrella with ones I cut to size from some ash boards I had. I had to remove the old ribs by drilling out the rivets and using one as the template for where to drill in my wooden replacements. Used bolts and loctite instead of rivets.
