And, some other third-party sellers on the site are giving vague estimates as to when the glasses will arrive or be back in stock, meaning they could arrive before or after the eclipse.

A limited number of eclipse glasses will be available for visitors to use but they encourage you to purchase your own eclipse glasses prior to the event.
The flyer for the Ocean Springs Libary pre-eclipse August 19 event, which begins at 10 a.m., announces it's all happening "when the sun and moon align with you". If they don't, then you may have been scammed.More news: Trump May Roll Out Probe Into China and Intellectual Property Theft
As before, you'll want to be sure that any pair of glasses meets those ISO standards before making a purchase.
