Radio Shack used to sell 'em -- just teeny ones IMHO useful for
sensors; you could check the Halifax Shopping Centre store, which
still has a few components.
I've been buying them from Edmund Scientific for forty years:
Canadian Tire sells quite economical panels in a size that you can
actually run things with, e.g.
You can also buy solar calculators at the dollar store or yardsale or
fleamarket; and rip their teeny cells out.
