Help me find these funny glasses

Help me find glasses like these in New York City.

I need them to complete a Halloween costume, but I'm not seeing them in any of the stores I've visited. The design is unimportant; the important thing is the cardboard eye piece with the hole for seeing.

Already visited: Party City, the costume shop on Broadway between 11th and 12th St, Ricky's, some dollar stores in my neighborhood. Been scanning the drugstores, too, but nothing so far.

I suppose I could buy them online if it comes down to that, but I don't need a dozen pairs and I don't want to pay whatever in shipping for something I would think I could buy in person for a couple of bucks.

Try Fantasma Magic Shop across from Penn Station, around 33rd and 7th. If they don't have it, they might know who does.

This also seems reasonably easy to facsimile if you have some blank frames

These usually seem to come in a large party-size pack anyway, so I think you should go ahead and buy them online. The time it will save you is worth a couple bucks for shipping.

I think I saw them at Reminiscences on 23rd St near 6th Ave

Pineapplicious gets best answer; Reminiscences did not have them, but the employees there sent me to Abracadabra two blocks down, which did.
