Where to buy small empty wire spools? Answered

I often buy wire off the internet that doesn't come on spools.  Does anyone know of a reliable company that sells small spools like the one in the picture?  I already googled it, but the sites didn't look very reliable.  Also, I checked McMaster-Carr, and the wire spools are fairy big, but I could settle for them if I can't find small spools.

Thanks in advance!

radio shack, craft stores and most home improvment stores such as ace

I thought radio shack doesn't sell empty spools. (that's where I got the wire pictured.)

well then go with my other two ideas ACE, home depot, lowes. or a craft store Michaels, A.C. moores. maybe even a quilting place like joanns fabrics

You're looking for a Plastic Wire spool called a "BOBBIN".

Unfortunately, i've been looking for them as well, with no luck.
