Where can I buy glasses or such things to view the annular eclipse on Sunday -- at the last minute, for a reasonable price?

I think I waited too long to order eclipse view glasses/shields. I found some on Amazon and they shipped Prime, but apparently since it's not directly fulfilled by Amazon themselves it won't get here until Monday.
Where can I get two pairs of eclipse glasses or other such devices to directly view the eclipse, for a reasonable price, and be assured that they'll be in my hands by Sunday?
I've heard that #14 welder shields can be used as well but that the eclipse will look green (not orange) when viewed through them. If this is my only option, where can I find this type of stuff and how much should I expect to pay?
I'm in Santa Rosa, CA and I do NOT have time to drive to San Francisco between now and Sunday. I need to find something online with 2-day shipping that's cheap OR somewhere local to buy.
