I have used Blackcoin to buy things, its fast transactions make it great for this. We are building a Blackcoin specific payment gateway to help facilitate merchant adoption.

Many people use Nxt to invest in:

i) physical ternary processors for use in distributed computing (Internet of Things)
ii) anonymous social media apps
iii) machine learning enabled, decentralised trading bots (intended for traditional forex markets, eventually)
iv) crowd funding for MMORPG computer game

and dozens of crypto only related projects. Nxt is creating its own ecosystem and the real world is starting to plug itself into it.

Pandacoin in Bucharest for taxis, beer & used guide books. People use it to hide from taxes. It isn't a craze: just a few places with VIPs or foreign customers do it. I posted this before and got totally attacked even though I had pictures. Some other people confirmed. I am not sure why this is hard to believe. Panda is quicker than Bitcoin afterall. To outsiders there isn't any difference between Bitcoin and Pandacoin: it is all magic internet money. Only Senior Members tell the truth I guess and as a newbie I must be lying because I haven't posted "Moon!" on a hundred threads. LOL. I am a Jr. Member now. I guess this makes me more truthful.  Even the Pandacoin devs & community do not believe. People started using it after some singer talked about it on TV over there. Her people tried to reach out them on the Panda  thread and they called her a scammer and told her to screw off. Real good move on their part. Not  There is no "official" Panda promotion effort in Romania. People on this forum want pictures of transactions: the next time you go to a dive bar ask the guy at the register or whatever if you can film him taking your money. Yeah, that will go over well ...

while BTC is my favorite, I actually haven't ever used it to buy anything yet except alts.  although I have used an alt before to buy something off of the internet and have it mailed to me.  that was not through a business but more of a "I'll send you these coins and you mail me that thing."  it worked out really well.

If it can be digitized, it should be decentralized

I've bought btc with altcoins and viceversa, but real things like services don't interest me yet. I'm wondering what is the "stuff" people supposedly bought with altcoins.

Since you asked: I bought mining gear and a VPN service with LTC and a used Honda Transalp (motorcycle) and a guitar theory course with XMR.

To be honest , I've never tried any Alternative coin not even the famous ones as Litecoin & Dogecoin .
I found Bitcoin unique and all others are some cheap copies but I could be wrong since I never tried them like I just said . (just my opinion)
