Where to buy plastic brims for caps?

I am looking for the extra wide ones that are at least 4" wide. I have searched on ebay and a general search on Google but haven't found a place that sells just the brims. I would like to make caps out of novelty material.

But you have to buy hundreds at a time and pay cash up front.

For just a few hats, buy them from thrift stores and rip them apart.

You can also use the really stiff interfacings meant for belts and purses.

lazygardens - Thanks for the information and links. Good idea about the thrift store. I hadn't thought about that.

I did read in my search about using the thin plastic cutting board sheet that you can get at the $1 store. Might try that.
