Where do you buy push pins/rivets/whatevertheyares?

I'm looking to buy some of these guys:



I stopped at a dealership on my way home from work, and figured that even with the dealer markup I could get a hundred of them for not a lot of money. They wanted $3.60/each. I wasn't sure if I wanted to laugh or punch the guy. I left.

Internet is giving me nothing. Best I can find is a dollar a clip which still seems outrageous. I know these things are manufactured for fractions of a penny a piece. Where can I buy a gross of these things for a quarter?

Somebody hook it up.

I got mine at the corner autoparts store from their fastners rack. Not sure if they were jeep specific or I just got lucky and found some that matched. They had a pretty good selection though.

Should have mentioned that.

I tried Pep Boys, but they didn't have any in stock. Figured I'd throw it up on here in case anybody had a line on them. Time saver if I can get them delivered to the door instead of having to make a stop during the work day tomorrow.

x2 on body shop suppliers or even dealers that have body shop parts counters. They use them a lot more than mechanic shops are and they're buying them in bulk rather than individually from oem manufacturers. Even at work they cost me like $0.70 a piece but I can go over to our body shop to their parts counter and get a bag of like 50 for a couple bucks.
