Inspired by maptor's thread about Japan, and spurred for my ever-growing hunger for Bitcoins, I'm offering a similar service to people interested in products from Greater China.

I can acquire items of historical interest in quality ranging from mass-produced, overpriced knick-knacks you're likely to find at 'imports' stores in the West, to items handcrafted by experienced masters (they're not as expensive as you might expect!). Some popular items include

Custom calligraphy. Tell me what you'd like written in Chinese, or I can select poems or excerpts from Chinese literature for you. If you're familiar with calligraphy, feel free to order a specific style.

Mahjong stuff.

Jade, both in raw stone form and carved form. Again, these can be customized. I know several jade carvers who take custom orders (again, for less than you'd expect!).

For customers less interested in traditional Chinese items, there are plenty of modern products I can send to the west for Bitcoins.

Then of course there is China's massive industrial base. I have actually run a small sourcing business on the side for three years now, buying medium quantities of Chinese goods for small and medium-sized businesses in America. I'm not ready to start accepting Bitcoins in a large scale for that business, but trying one or two orders in Bitcoins could be fun to try, if you have the need. What I tell my customers is that if you have an item that can be mass produced, I can get it for you cheaper in Asia. Apparel, toys, raw materials, consumer jewelry, books, other printed items. You name it.

Go is called Weiqi in China. I don't think it's as popular here as in Japan, but it actually has quite a following in Hong Kong. No vendors or craftsmen jump to mind, but I'm sure I can find them. What would you be looking for? A game board?

As for alcohol, you'll see a picture of a Moutai bottle I posted above. It's a kind of Baijiu, Chinese white liquor, made from Sorghum plant. Most Chinese liquors are. There is a kind of Guilin Baijiu called 三花酒 that's made from rice.

Alcohols are highly taxed in China, but they're duty free in Hong Kong, which is where I am. Just another way I can pass savings on to you!

Hey, good job!  Grin

Can you get the latest electronics? Where abouts do you live?

As I said above, I live in Hong Kong. And yes I can get electronics. But you'll have to get more specific about what you want. A lot of luxury electronics like smartphones are cheaper in the west, especially the US. Computer equipment, on the other hand, like miners' beloved ASICs, for example....


I actually never considered marketing my sourcing to miners, but now that I think of it, that might be quite a revenue stream for me.

On the other hand, part of why I'm offering this service at all is because I want there to be more opportunities for Bitcoins outside of mining and ponzis. I think large-scale mining for profits' sake is actually not good for Bitcoin as a currency. But that's another argument.

What kind of electronics are you looking for?

I'm looking for a sweet sake with low alcohol (but certainly with alcohol).

Depending on where you need it shipped, should be able to do it for around 20 BTC.

You mean sweet like in flavor? Not bitter or burning? You won't like Chinese alcohols, then. They tend to be highly potent with a bite to them. Is there a particular brand of sake that you know you like? I can see if I can find it cheaply or a Chinese knock-off.
