Lots of places. Google for ASBESTOS TEST KIT.

Remember, the kits are cheap. You don't even need one. Just place a couple square inches of whatever you have into a plastic bag. That's the kit.

The expensive part comes when the lab sends you the bill. Figure $30 to $50 dollars depending upon where you send it.

Per item tested.

If you're paranoid, remember that when you sell your house you must disclose any knowledge you have concerning asbestos, lead, etc. If you're buyer is also paranoid and happens to check with the popular test labs, I suppose it's possible he could obtain a record of your particular test. That, combined with a negative answer on your disclosure can result in a nasty law suit... Maybe it's better not to know?
