Hey everyone,

I just put up a thread in the Goods section for beaded Bitcoin keychains made by hand here in South Africa.

I'm now going to show you some of the other cool stuff made by the crafters. It's all distinctive and interesting work, not too expensive either, so I hope you guys'll like it. Smiley Get back to me on anything you want and I'll phone up the craftspeople, work out price and shipping for you, and add the items to my Bitmit / Coingig stores so you can easily purchase via escrow.

This is a distinctive hand-carved wooden pipe for your smoking pleasure. We call it a "shalompie," you may know it as a one-hitter:


And here's an interesting carved and inlaid box with latch for your smoking supplies or whatever:


A man's braided-copper bracelet, simple but cool [I can also have this made as smaller full circle with an interior Bitcoin symbol made of gold glass beads. See my keychain thread.]:


These are stylish racks for holding your larger items, I'd say these make good fruitbaskets or fast-action storage devices for your best nunchucks:


Here's a rough-hewn woodcarving with the South African "Big 5" (Rhino, Lion, Elephant, Cheetah, Wildebeest) and the city of Pretoria in the background:


I have lots of stuff like necklaces, earrings, sandals and wooden / stone carvings on offer, let me know if you'd like pics of those. I can also have items custom made for you.

I forgot to mention, the idea is to get the crafters into selling the goods themselves, for Bitcoin ideally but also through ebay and so on. If there's reasonable demand, I'll start and document a project to introduce the crafters to Bitcoin trading and international shipping.

Hi guys, forgive my late reply.

I don't have exact prices for you tonight. I can promise they'll be reasonable.

The box is definitely for sale. The pipe is about the length of a pen, say 10 - 15 cm.

Now I know what items are interesting, I'll open new Goods > threads for the pipe and the box.

These threads will include live BTC prices, exact dimensions and more pictures. I'll drop you guys a PM when that's done, should all be ready 24 hours from now.

I forgot to reference, the idea is to complete the crafters into selling the goods themselves, for Bitcoin ideally but next through ebay and so behind insinuation to. If there's reasonable demand, I'll begin and document a project to introduce the crafters to Bitcoin trading and international shipping.

Lol, didn't notice that this thread was old before reading your reply. I was thinking these stuff really nice, but as it's too old, I think the guy isn't selling anything anymore...

But the idea is nice, sell some crafted items for BTCs. Some crafters sell this kind of items very cheap and if someone can sell it for them on the internet, their profit can be higher.

Yea I necro the thread because I think its a good idea. The thing is, is there enough of a demand to warrant such a venture ?

Its something to perhaps look into if the demand is met.

Currently I think there isn't enough demand. We don't have many people using BTCs in the world, and the few people using it don't have much interest on this kind of stuff.

When more people start using BTCs, not only the informatic and technological enthusiasts, but all the people, maybe persons who have interest on this kind of stuff appear looking to buy it more frequently with Bitcoins, because the more accessible price and easily when doing transactions.

How much do you charge for shipping the goods overseas?

I think it's not available anymore, very old thread and offers (2013).
