You should buy the parts yourself and pay the shop for just labor, supplies and incidentals. Clutch kits shouldn't cost more than 5-600 tops, and 5-6 hours of labor at $80-100 tops.. Just a very approximate ballpark guess without knowing exact part/labor estimates, but I can't be too far off.
$100 for labor on a clutch is incredibly low. They have to take out the exhaust and driveshaft, then drop the transmission.
