Good Questions: Affordable Venetian Blind Source?

Hello AT,

AT, this one's been driving me nuts. I just moved in to my great new corner apartment rental in Federal Hill, Baltimore. The place gets lots of light, even though it's on the north side of the building. The great thing is these supertall windows in the living room.

I'm looking to upgrade to some nice roman shades, but in the size I need (231/8 x 81 1/8), they are looking to be very expensive. I've looked at a lot of custom shades websites, and the quote is always $130+ each. Since I need 6-8 shades, (haven't decided if I'm going to do the bedroom yet) this could become an expensive proposition.

I am willing to shop locally in NYC if anyone knows a good shop. I'm in new york pretty much every other weekend visiting friends and family. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. Here are some pics (please keep in mind I just moved in!)


Dear Barry,

We hate to say it, but $130 seems like a very normal and not high price to us. That said, we're sure there is some place where you can go bargain basement.
