Prices in Trini?

Can anyone tell me how much sunbrella is likely to cost in Trinidad? There is heavy acrylic here in Brazil but is about $34 a metre (3.3ī). Seen sunbrella on internet for $17 but would like to know the actual cost I might pay in Trinidad. I want to make a sun awning and will be in trini at some point but not sure if itīs better to get one here where labour is very cheap or wait ītil trini.
Also, budget marine have trojan T105 batteries for about $150 in their brouchure, is that what they cost in Trini also? There was some disclaimer on budgets brouchure about tax free prices.

Thanks all

Dear Paddy,

Trinidad is not the cheapest place, but a few years ago my nextdoor neighbour put up a sunshade and redid their outdoor furniture ( not sunbrella but similar) on their villa and I thought I would too. There are a number of discount-end run fabric shops on henry street, Port of Spain the biggest and the one where we bought ours was "Aboud Jimmy the textile king". Unfortunately I haven't been back for a little time, so can't help you with current prices, however I remember that i was please a final cost, but you can locate numbers etc, if you google him and check prices. There are a lot of those stores in TT, but whether they actually have the colour and quality etc. you are specifically looking for is to be determined.

best Regards
