You could always pick up the Explorer profession on one or all of your toons - you can totally ignore the Tailor part if you want, but it will allow you to harvest any ore and wood you come across. You can then sell that on the AH and earn enough to buy whatever you want, or you can trade the mats you gather for crafted items.
Alternatively, you can join a friendly kinship where kinmates will often be happy to craft items for each other.
