If you are mechanically inclined and have a welder you can make a simple one. All you need is a piece of three or four inch pipe for the drive shaft. Get a piece of three eights plate and cut out an eighteen inch circle, mark the center for welding the pipe vertically to it. Cut a slot about two to three inches wide from the edge of the circle to the center of the edge of the pipe. Take a piece of inch and a half wide flat bar for a cutting edge and weld on the edge of the slot for a cutting bit at about a twenty to thirty degree angle. Then take about a two inch wide strip by 1/8 thick strap and weld around the top outer edge of the plate to hold the dirt on. I made a hand auger like that last year for a five foot deep hole I had to dig. Worked good. You really don't need all those spirals that a normal bit has to get the dirt out of a short hole. I don't have a camera so I can't show you a picture of the one I made.

Mechanically inclined? (slightly) A welder? (Umm...that is a story for another time but...NO) I would truly love to be able to do that but this is not the time. As it happens one jumped off ebay right into my lap. Thanks for the help, though!
