I picked up a set at my local hardware store. They are part of the "DoIt Center" group, maybe other stores in that group carry them too. Here are some of their locations in California
I could have sworn I saw them at Lowe's yesterday too.

The first set I bought years ago was woven bamboo with a bamboo pole, a solar panel on top and they had a nice flicker to them. But they only lasted a couple of years before the woven part fell apart. The next ones I picked up looked exactly the same but they were all plastic. In this case I think that is actually a good thing and they will be more durable. They've got a nice yellow glow but they don't flicker very much.
