First off, stop using your Mac. I mean now! Use some one else's to post here and to get Data Rescue II.
http://www.prosofteng.com/products/data_rescue.php
Download it on to a USB thumb drive. It has a demo mode that will allow you to see if your files can be recovered. But do not load it on your Mac!
In all probability your data is still on your hard drive, but your Mac thinks that you deliberately deleted that folder and any new files will be allowed to overwrite the old ones.
This includes system swap/cache files that your Mac does behind the scenes. Anything that you do will add to the chance that the files will be completely destroyed, and yes data recovery companies charge enormous amounts of money. Good luck!
