I think most people who use them make their own but Moog make them:

I built a Paia one from a kit, fantastic sound and with pitch, volume and velocity voltage outputs for driving my modular synth.

They don't do them built up only as kits.

You can get one of the D.I.Y. kits for much cheaper, the soldering is the most difficult part. It kinda depends on what you want it for - do you want to be a proper Theremin player that uses it in performances and composition or do you just want to make spoooooky noises in your bedroom? Obviously, a theremin for the former is way more expensive.

Check out some Clara Rockmore or the soundtrack to Forbidden Planet for some savge theremin sexy action. Think the Barrons did the soundtrack - I could be wrong, but then again, I rarely am.
Unrelated but worth a gawk, the guy in the Silver Apples used to play 8 different oscillators on stage whilst singing. Talented? Yes.
