Shopping Cart Furniture Answered

Picture of

This set of furniture made from a shopping cart by Ramon Coronado is pretty sweet. There's a table, a chair, a lamp, and even a swing, all made from a shopping cart with a plastic basket. It's a lot like Tim Anderson's Shopping Cart Chair, but with the extra option of bending the plastic with the help of a heat gun.

Re "Some stores/chains might be willing to give/sell you one that is significantly damaged, rather than paying for repairs" I think kelseymh is really on to something.  I've heard that the shopping carts are very expensive-makes sense that repairs prob cost a small fortune.

Where would a person get a shopping cart?

Legally?  Buy one.  A Google search for "commercial shopping cart" gives www.shopcarriage-trade.com/carriagepage.html as the first hit; they cost about USD$200 each.

Less legally?  Theft.  Either walk home from the store with one, or "find" one where someone else did that. 

Some stores/chains might be willing to give/sell you one that is significantly damaged, rather than paying for repairs.
