Ever Wonder Where Homeless People in NYC Get Their Shopping Carts?

When I lived in NYC, I learned that the "grocery stores" don't have the large shopping carts that the homeless people are driving around Manhattan with all of their stuff. So where do homeless New Yorkers get shopping carts? Do they take a train to Jersey and somehow push the shopping cart back with them over the George Washington Bridge? It's not like they can buy a shopping cart online...

This question got the staff here at Roxiticus Desperate Housewives wondering where homeless people in Manhattan (or, more importantly, someone with a home, a computer, and a web site) would find shopping cart software to create your own online store. The answer is Ashop Commerce, a leading US provider of complete e-commerce solutions that enable web merchants to sell online. It looks like an easy way for bloggers or other web site operators to accept credit cards on your web site. I will be looking for your suggestions (via the comments area below) on items we might start selling on this site. Autographed photos of the Roxiticus Desperate Housewives? Personal blog posts? Hot secrets?
