Where can I buy an astrolabe in New York City?

I'm looking for astrolabes, sextants, armillary's, etc. for a project but need to have it by Saturday, preferably by tomorrow night. It can be small, or a duplication, and it doesn't have to actually work but it should look somewhat authentic. Stanley London
has items like that, but they're mail-order only.
My mind is blanking on where to purchase such an item in NYC, though. The only thing I can think of would be the gift shops at the Met or Natural History Museum. Any ideas? I'm also open to items with that kind of design aesthetic (like sort of steampunk-ish stuff) or other astronautical items.
