How can I get something shipped from L.A. to Wisconsin when the seller won't ship it, asks for cash, and I don't have any friends there?

I have been looking for a specific type of saddle for a while and finally found it in the classifieds.
I emailed the lady and asked her if she would ship it to me, but she said that she wouldn't. It had to be cash and carry.
It is a great price for the saddle and just what I wanted, but it seems I've exhausted all my options.
I don't have tons of money, but would be willing to pay for both the time and shipping - maybe an extra $100 or so. I can't afford too much, so this is frustrating with the price being so good.
Is this something that is done?
Where can I find someone to go to her house, pay cash that I've sent through paypal or my credit card, and then ship it to me with a handling fee?
I've exhausted my social network - everyone is either out of the country for a while or more than 9 hours away from L.A.
