As I get ready to travel for Spring Vacation, I notice my favorite items and most of them are also promotional items. I have dug in our sample umbrella bin, pulled rain jackets off the shelves and ordered yoga pants and tanks tops. I have my luggage and sling backpack as well as a travel blanket. Throw in some hand sanitizers, sun screen and lip balm, and I am all set.

What is Brolliology? The study of the bumbershoot, the brolly, the parasol, the umbrella! Brolliologists maintain that the umbrella is one of man's oldest artifacts. Mostly used for sun protection, rather than rain protection, the umbrella has not changed much over the last 2000 years. Nowadays, we tend to group them into folding and stick categories. The folding is more portable and smaller; while the stick is more fashionable and larger. Wind resistance is important too - with stronger ribs and vented material. Whether shading the royalty or keeping your head dry, the umbrella is a useful artifact for everyone. Consider giving them at your next event.
