How much rain do yer get for two quid, guv?
Bill Phillips: As much as you like sir
Seems a good idea...
Bill Phillips: If they didn't sell any that day they never will Elizabeth

Bill Phillips: They didn't have his size Lady P. So i just bung him in a plastic bag. He doesn't seem to mind

Bill Phillips: Their last hope really

I bet they did a fair trade, Bill, judging by the rest of your photos
Bill Phillips: The shop was closed due to bad weather

Yes, we need - in Bournemouth/England - but yesterday it was a sunny, wonderful autumnal day!
Bill Phillips: It was beautiful here yesterday but today it is raining again
Well it will keep your butties dry.
Bill Phillips: An important consideration

It impossible to find them when you really need one
Bill Phillips: So true vintage
I really love this one. It is the perfect shot in this series, the climax of the story, or the punch line. Take your pick. Well done!
Bill Phillips: Thank you Mary. The last in the series is actually tomorrow but this could easily have been.
This emporium owner must have kept a sharp eye on the weather forecast. When it's sunny ( if it's sunny) I expect he/she puts up a poster for sun hats and sun cream.
Bill Phillips: It might have been part of his plan to be open as well....that would have helped his sales.

Just the job - I thought they would have gone up to a fiver when it was raining, but maybe it is always raining.
Bill Phillips: They had probably already gone up from 50p Mike

And the price goes up when it is actually raining.
Bill Phillips: It rains a lot here so it is hardly worth bothering
Is this at the entrance to the city? grin
Bill Phillips: Hahaha the exit hopefully
I bet they sold like hotcakes during the visit you've showed us.
Bill Phillips: They would have done if the shop had been open Brian

Seem like a bargain. In New York the price of the umbrellas double on wet days!
Bill Phillips: Supply and demand first rule of Economics

Well seen Bill, good to see the entrepreneurial spirit alive and well in Bournemouthsmile
Bill Phillips: Wasn't a day for selling sun cream that's for sure
It was a good day for the sale judging from the window Bill... umbrellas only sell on rainy daysgrin....petersmile
Bill Phillips: you get a better deal on a sunny day though smile
A must in this place Bill! Well spotted.
Bill Phillips: A must in the UK Richard grin
Cheap at the price and as vital as radiation suits in Fukishima on the basis of the evidence Bill!
Bill Phillips: Hahaha I think on that basis rain isn't so bad
he he he, I can also think of Rain Ponches, which is another story!
Bill Phillips: The mind boggles Juan Carlos

What a bargain buy smile
Bill Phillips: A true bargain Anne. Is 2 a prime number?
Why should you pay £2 to be rained on by ponchos (whoever he is), when you can get wet enough with the ordinary stuff?
Could do with those today. Not that its raining hard - just that grey drizzle that soaks you without you realising it.
He's still got some left?!
