Comment on Amish Umbrellas by Linda.
In the Shetler’s Wholesale Co. catalog from Geneva, Indiana, two sizes of umbrellas are listed for sale at $24.95 each plus shipping. When opened, the Double Canopy Umbrella has a 62-inch diameter, strong fiberglass construction, “wind buster”. The Large Clear Panel Umbrella has a diameter of 68 inches, is heavy duty with extra supports, “our best”. Only one panel of the 68-inch umbrella is clear, the other 7-9 (approximately) panels are black. It seems a clear panel window could help to see where you are going in the rain. Surely the local Amish stores or buggy shops also sell the large umbrellas.
