Final edit: I'm closing up shop! Last two pans are being auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Sean's Outpost. Check out the auctions here:

Thanks for all the love & support these past couple years. =)

I've been selling baklava online at my website mandrik.com since 2009, and I started taking bitcoins as payment over a year ago. I've offered special deals in the past on this forum before (you can view the original post here - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=77638.0), and I will be offering more again in about a week (stay tuned). We can handle the order details privately via PM's, or you can order directly through mandrik.com. US orders only. If you're curious about my feedback & reputation you can read the bitcointalk link above, check out my feedback page on BitMit, and see my baklava auction on eBay.

Now I wonder if I should start selling bacon weaves for btc....

Mine just arrived!  Double-packed, professional job.  You can tell the guy cares about his product.  If you are on the fence about this, just buy it.  The baklava is fantastic.  Thanks, George/Mandrik!

There is only one word to describe that baklava. Delicious. I ordered 3lbs one evening and it showed up at my doorstep 2 days later. my first thoughts as I took a bite were "why didn't I get more?", and "why didn't I order sooner?". 10/10, Im already craving the next batch.

I've been getting a bunch of press this week! Check it out. Smiley

Fox News: What can you buy with bitcoins?

The Daily Best: My Bitcoin (Mis)adventure

I also did an interview with The Washington Post today, so I'm curious to see how that one turns out. I'm going to be gone all next week, but when I get back I'm going to restart the free silver promo!

Yes, it is. I've had George's Baklava and it very much is. I've also had it deep fried which is orgasmic.

Shire Silver, a better bullion that fits in your wallet. Get some, now accepting bitcoin!

Just updated with a free silver dime promo! For every 3 lbs of baklava you order & pay in btc I'll send you a silver dime! I have a few dime card lying around, too, and I'll start with those first. Smiley Thanks!

I didn't even know about that! I recently bought 6 lbs of chocolate baklava from you! I'm also Greek and baklava was never one of my favorite desserts (Bougatsa being my favorite) but I love dark chocolate and since you're a bitcoin store I thought I'd try it out. Your price is great, (I'll do a comparison with the Hellas bakery if I can (I don't particularly like their baklava, but I do like most of their other stuff).

I'm thinking of preparing and selling tabasco peppers but unfortunately I eat and give away tons of them (I love spicy stuff). I'd love to meet you one day so if you plan on showing up in tarpon springs in old people (I meant pinellas) county just contact me.

I'm the historian of the hellenic society of spc (Greek Club) and I would love to have an event where you could make food for us on campus (the fucking annoying SGA (student government) would never allow this. Or of campus (The SGA can suck a ****)

I can't wait to get your order, if it gets here soon it will be the first non-digital good I've ever bought with bitcoin!


Edit: I just saw your post is pretty old!, I don't care about the silver, I have some already in bullion bars!

Just saw this post - I hope you enjoyed the baklava! I've sold it online for over four years, but have been baking since I was a young teen. I've done a lot of restaurant, festival, and personal chef work over the years, too, but it's something my heart isn't into any more. I appreciate the interest, though. Smiley While the free silver offer has expired (for now), I still bake & sell for btc!

US orders only, unfortunately. It costs too much, and takes too long to ship outside the US. Sad

LOL!

If you're in Keene, New Hampshire I'll gladly give you a sample, but it would cost too much to mail out individual pieces.
