I personally used a "buttonized" dollar sign, but I'll check my fonts at home this evening if you haven't found one by then.
korkus... LOL! Now I know where 99% of all ecommerce websites get their shopping cart icons from. hehehe... small world.
Stick outline. Square dots across the middle to indicate some sort of mesh. Two wheels. Pure cheese but very effective. Saved as a vector object so now I can have cheesy carts in any size or color.
At any rate, it was kind of fun to draw sticks and dots and have it come out looking like a cart.
Cart races, anyone?
PS - anyone using Painter 7? It rocks!
I can send you a copy. :) Wouldn't want you feeling left out when I bring my puffy chrome shopping cart to the races...

That's what I love about making icons. Having sitcks and dots end up turning into a shopping cart is as much of a kick as having a bunch of individual colored pixels turn into a desktop icon... and it's really hard to make those silly super-realistic desktop icons you see on the download sites.
But, if you're interested in saving time on a project that just doesn't demand (or pay for) your attention sufficiently to draw your own... I admit to just doctoring clip art now and then. (OK. I admit to doing it rather frequently...)
Sound familiar or am I the only one suffering from a tired brain?
In such case, you can whip up an icon (like a cart - nothing too sophisticated) in a fraction of the time. If you're ambitious - you can turn them into fonts and sell them <G>.
If we have such totally opposite time-saving practices, maybe we should go into business together, and see if we can't get a site slapped together in *less* than no time. Then we could just make up line items for the invoice... (either that or it would take a year just to get the logo & front page done)
