WTB: Parts for Raleigh Tourist bicycles

Hi there....I'm hoping someone can help. I just purchased a men's and women's Raleigh Tourist bicycle (mid-1970's model) from an owner who shipped them to me via a bicycle shop. Unfortunately, the bicycle shop very unprofessionally packed the bikes and misplaced a few parts during disassembly.

My local bike shop has told me that three of the buttons that pinches the rod, as well as the brake pad hardware is missing.

(I am attaching photos for reference.)

Does anyone have an idea where I might find these parts? Or else would be willing to sell them to me?

Thank you in advance for your input!

I hope the bicycle shop is replacing these parts for you. Old Bike Trader might have some parts.

That blows! Did you front the cost of packaging the bike? I would try to make the bike shop accountable for the lost items. Bummer, man. Good luck.
