Does anyone have some great resources online or brick and morter in Boston, New England, or New York City for Marimekko Fabric that isn't going to make me have to deny my child a college education because it costs so much?

Links are much appreciated, especially places that will sell smaller amounts.
Thank you,
amymisha

Reprodepot has a pretty large selection of Marimekko fabric, sold as half yards. It's still pricier than I'd like, but it's a start, I guess.

If I'm not mistaken, The Fabric Fairy also has Marimekko fabrics.  They sometimes have different weights or even knits, too, I think.

Marimekko is very high end designer fabric.  I assume it is manufactured in smaller batches. The extremely large scale designs are probably more labor intensive too.  It is very special and unique from Finland (I think) and they can charge a premium if they want!  Plenty of people pay for it!

I'm fortunate enough to live in the same town as the outlet mall that has some of the "world's best shopping" (tourism website's words, not mine).

We have a Crate and Barrel Outlet that sells Marimekko remnants for 95 cents a pound. I bought $1.33 worth last week, and its a lot more than it sounds like. Some piece are almost a yard square.

Is there a Crate and Barrel (outlet or regular) near your home?
