i agee with beamur if you can find a sunday aisan market you will be in heaven. i have one i go to every sunday and have built up a good rappore with a man who sells super cheap fabric. he even keeps some aside for me if he thinks i might like it. the other day i was in a shop and saw some fabric made by prestigiousl for £15 a meter. i get the same for £2 a yard and even at times i get it for £1 a yard. i dont find weekday markets cheap for anything especially fabric.
