Online source for curtains?

After saving $1,000 on our bimini I ordered online vs. a custom fit one made locally, anyone know of a good source for window curtains online?*

Bess bought ours at Sears or JC Penny or Macy's and just hemmed them up to the right length. Saved us HUNDREDS of dollars.

You want French lace?* That is what we used and they were inexpensive, simple to install and look just right, at least for our style boat.* If interested, the site is http://www.macrame-lace.com/cafe-curtains/.

*Our Salon curtains I got at Penney's. Under 100.00 for all of them.* The lined kind to hold in the AC/Heat.* I bought 84" for length.* I turned them sideways and rehemmed them to be 84"* wide and 36" long for the long side windows.* The doors were 2 42x60 and we have 2 little windows as well that the valence fit perfect.* Only the long windows needed altering.

*Our stateroom curtains I just did.* I got*one 84" long black out curtain at Target.* One 42x84 gave me 2 42x18 for the stern hatches and 3 21x14s for the portlights.*(15.00) The blackout fabric doesn't let in any light.....really keeps the heat out.

In hindsight, the only thing I'd change would be adding pleats to the salon curtains..for a more finished look.* But I want to change them again when I'm done reupholstering the barrel chairs.*
