Can I have a glasses store put near-sighted lenses in cheap reading glasses? Is there another way to get cheap glasses for my small face?

Here are my problems:
1. Don't want to spend a lot of money
2. Do want new glasses
3. Have a small head -- most glasses from the eyeglass place make me look like a bug. Kids' glasses are a little too small.
I like trying on those narrower reading glasses in Barnes & Noble because they actually look good on me! However, I have only ever seen those in a "+" subscription. Is there some way to get those glasses in a "-" (-1.50 and -3.25, to be specific -- but I would settle for a solid -2 or -3)? Alternately, can I have them re-fitted with those lenses?
I will ask at an eyeglass shop, but wonder if someone else has found a good solution for this. Online and in-person vendor recommendations welcome.
