Drapery snaps for new curtains

I'm making new curtains for the 68 Caravel. Were can I find the side snap to attach the drapes to the wall?

Hopefully the snap half that was on the wall is still there. If not you can reinstall it with a rivet or small screw. We got ours from JoAnn's Fabrics. They came in a kit with the tool to set the halves together. I used leather punch pliers to make the hole. They also have kits with pliers made to mate the two snap halves together.

Cabela's sometimes has that type of kit also. I've seen it in the tent camping stuff.
