Where to Get Empty Aftershave Bottles?

Does anyone have an idea of where to get empty bottles to put aftershave into? I went by a number of flea markets and antique shops today. Nothing useful. Any idea what kind of store might carry empty bottles?

I have regularly found Avon bottles (full and empty) at Goodwill stores. There's a few remaining thrift stores around town that get new items regularly, and glassware is always overflowing. Though I have redone tabasco bottles to hold A/S, so, creativity is king here.
I bought some new 5? ounce hot sauce bottles from the 'zon about 3 or 4 years ago that work great.
 
I have often seen embossed vintage Pinaud and Yardley empty bottles on the bay for little money. Obviously not ideal if you want a set of matching bottles.

Aren’t they’re any aftershaves you’d like to try in glass bottles ?
Try some of these, Ogallala Bay Rum, Poraso, Speick, English leather, etc. and reuse the bottle.
 
Amazon sells a variety of smaller (eg. 3-5oz) bottles with caps, but typically in cases of 12 (about $20) or more.

It takes forever to empty a bottle. The only glass ones I have are a Proraso that is not very old and a Speick that I just bought.
 
I make my own empty bottles :) It does take a while to empty them but I have a pretty good collection now and Pinaud aftershaves are the only ones I've found that really need to be taken out of their plastic bottles.

A thrift store might have some. I bought mine on eBay back in the day. I mostly use empty Tabasco bottles that I refill. After 4-5 bottles, I stop saving them (obviously I consume more Tabasco bottles than I require Aftershave bottles).

I use the small 57ml bottle (clean it well, the cap too). The dripper is made of glass, unlike the bigger version. I use a food-grade syringe to fill the bottle.

I have a bottle of Avatar aftershave I received as a gift when I was young. Never liked it. Overpowering. I think I’ll dump this and use the bottle.
