looking for screw covers (?)

Hi all. I'm not sure where to post this topic so I will start here. I am getting the house ready to put on the market and need to cover a few exposed screws on the outside of a few cabinets (some are missing). They are made of plastic and look very much like a thumb tack. They just push into the hole of the screw and it looks very neat and clean. I tried google and can't seem to find them. I think they must have a specific name but don't know what to check. They are the kind of thing that you also get when you buy furniture you assemble (like IKEA). Any help will be appreciated!! Thanks, Elle

Why not try a hardware store?

Well, we did try Lowes and Home Depot, but I guess we have to try the little Mom and Pop stores. ~Elle
