Default Suggestions for trunk carpet retainer clips?

I'm fixing up two older Toyotas (1993 Camry and 1994 Corolla),
and each car is missing some of the retainer clips that hold
the trunk carpeting in place.

These clips pushed through the carpet and have little expanders
that snap into holes in the auto body.

Any creative suggestions on what I can use to serve this
purpose? I need about a dozen, and I'll feel silly paying
Toyota $3 each for them if I can do the job with a simple
part I can get at Home Depot or a carpet shop.

Thanks in advance.

Try a junkyard.
Find a Toyota car in the same age range and yank out the clips you
need and put them in your pocket.
Hang around the yard a while and then leave!
If you are not a junkyard dog,. then perhaps buying some Velcro at a
arts-n-crafts store is the way to go.
Good luck

You should be able to find almost any automotive upholstery or panel clip at
an automotive paint supply store. Many good auto parts stores carry them as
well but usually don't have as good of a selection. They usually don't cost
that much either.
