Where have you looked for one?  Just in local shops, or online, too?

Hall effect sensors can often be found in consumer products, do a google search to find out what you should look for.

Not really possible. Of course HALL managed to measure the effect in a metal, and not in a semiconductor, but only a semiconductor based device is really practical.
