Make it yourself or buy it from somebody who did.

I saw this at BoingBoing and was really moved. I've been an obsessive maker of things all my life and recently have decided that whenever possible I'll spend my money buying things from the people who make them.

I got new wheels for Jethro's cart (the one he banged up on his wild ride) from the wheelwright himself, we talked on the phone several times and he is a real person.

My friend who's considering going into the pushcart profession is also very interested in selling things made by actual humans.
