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.
Those fonts look pretty nice Korkus but I would like to avoid paying if I can.
korkus... LOL! Now I know where 99% of all ecommerce websites get their shopping cart icons from. hehehe... small world.
A while back I was going through some symbol fonts, and I found the Overture logo - it was rotated 90 degrees, and without the color fill-in, but the shape was undeniable. It gave me a chuckle!
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)
