Never buy, put it in the rubbish bin in the next hour... Bad smell bad quality :( very disappointed.
Sorry to hear that the umbrella wasn't in the condition you expected. We would have been more than happy to rectify this problem if you had contacted us. Sometimes the PVC umbrellas have an odour remaining from the manufacturing process, but these are few and far between, and the odour wears away in time (as with all new PVC). Our customers rarely experience these issues and we regret that your experience with us was not to our usual high standard.
