Party City has them and they seem to have a store in Albany. Can't attest as to the quality etc. Amazon have them too.

I saw some a couple of weeks ago in Pier One Imports and Bed Bath and Beyond in WNY but didn't look at the prices just the pretty packaging :-)

Costco have them.

Made by the original makers who still supply to the queen.

And you don't have to buy fifty, they come in a pack of Eight!
