try garden stores in spring/summer. I took one of the ones used for paths. and hit it with a hammer. File edges, you get lots of peices. Only down side all the same color.

you might be able to find an out cropping of shale in a park or forest. its not the same as slate, but it has very similar properties. its flaky, easy to break into sheets, etc just like slate. and it will be free. Lake Ontario and Adirondack park are within a few hours of you (when looking at map quest), if theres none by the lake, the park might have some.
