Where to buy replacement keys for powerbook

My 12 inch powerbook just had some of its keys accidentally broken off, it's needing new keys, I already tried sticking them back on. Where is the best place to buy these keys? If it matters the computer is the 1.33 Ghz model. Thanks for any help.

There are periodically people selling them here from dead keyboards. Otherwise eBay is always good. However, typically, you end up paying $3-5 per keycap, and you can get a replacement keyboard in its entirety on eBay for about $35-40. So... take that into account, depending on how many broken keys you have.
