curtains

Hi guys
Not really a HG topic, so take this post off if it's unsuitable mods.
I'm looking for curtains for a bay window in a tenement and wondered where the cheapest/best :) place to buy them was. Any ideas?

we got roman blinds made to measure from a wee shop on maryhill rd. after buying the material ourselves at a big warehouse place near the clyde.

i think made to measure is the best route as the drop is usually very long (to the floor)
Eighty percent of success is showing up.

If they are 120" drop like mine are, then made to measure is your only option. cheapest we found were plumbs (online) wait until they have a sale, they quite often do bogof so buy two pairs half the width you need. Saying that I still havn't bought any, I have only been looking 7 years now.
