You can buy a wireless keyboard and optical mouse from around £9.99 upwards these days and a plain common or garden keyboard from around £2.50.

It's most likely the contacts have become worn.

It might be worth checking if CapsLock works. It would be improbable for that to pack up at the same time as the Shift keys.
