Where can I find poles for this REI tent?

I got a free new REI tent, but it doesn't come with poles. The tent just says "Quarter Dome, year of 2007". We went into REI but the tent is too old for them to support. I emailed Tent Pole Technologies for their opinion and was told that only the 3 UL was made in 2007, and I coughed up the money to buy the poles. However, they do not fit. My tent has grommets on all 4 corners, but each pole only has a grommet on one side. Also, my tent looks a lot like the pictures of other REI quarter dome 3 UL tents, but only half of it is sleeved, the other is attached by hooks. I have emailed Tent Pole Technologies back, but am not hopeful that they will do much more than grudgingly give me a partial refund. So how can I find poles for this tent or should I just give up?
