I bought a stroller umbrella.  I am not sure where I got it but it was about $10 or so.  Probably WalMart or Toy's R Us. 

It has a reversible plastic clamp so you can clamp it horizontal or vertical.  I would say it is about 30" across and is green and blue.

In addition to the GAKbrella and stroller/golf bag umbrellas, I can also recommend this set at Amazon. > http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004HR0M4Q
Great deal for 3 and included mount.  We've put them to the test during very crappy and rainy conditions up at Mountain Jam and they worked great.  Just note that they are considerably bigger than the GAKbrella. 

Those stroller/golf bag umbrellas can run double-duty: clamped one to my camping chair at Wanee this year and it provided some welcome shade from the blazing midday Florida sun.

That's not a bad deal at all, especially including a 7 ft stand and a clamp

^  Oh yeah, forgot to mention the stand that's part of the Amazon package.  By no means is it in the league of Manfrotto, Impact, etc; in fact, it's pretty cheap construction.  But it worked just fine for us on a 2nd stage festival rig holding up a full-size pair of Nak 300s.  No complaints there.
