The Price of a Roman Shade

During one of JC Penney's recent home sales I wandered over to the window department to inquire about a Roman shade for our side door. I picked out the style and fabric I liked and the sales representative plugged in the measurements to give me a quote. I'm thinking $60 with the sale, especially since it was only 1 I needed.

These were the selections and I was interested in the Pleated Classic (on the bottom left):

These were the 2 fabric swatches I chose, and let me tell you that they were both on the bottom price scale:

The total price for 1 Roman Shade in the Pleated Classic = $565!! And that was for ONE shade and with the sale price. I was shocked to say the least. I understand they are custom made, but still! So, my search continues on finding an inexpensive Roman shade, preferably a light blue shade. I also want something that will still allow light to filter in.
