Is there a list of merchants who accept bitcoins?
I belive that this is covered by Is there a list of established sites that have started accepting Bitcoin? and A list of trusted Bitcoin websites?. Agree?– D.H.Nov 29, 2011 at 19:01
1@D.H.: The question is actually quite distinct from these two. One focuses on preestablished businesses, the other on recording merchants' reputation.– Meni RosenfeldNov 29, 2011 at 19:29
1@MeniRosenfeld: Well, yes, but the first one already mentions the wiki trade page in the question and the second one overlaps with this one. I agree that the questions are not identical but I'm pretty sure that anything that turns up here will already be covered by one of the other questions. But, anyway, I will leave this question open unless others want to close it.– D.H.Nov 29, 2011 at 19:48
As well as the https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade page you could look at:
Both of these sites try to give some kind of rating or review but the data is limited at the moment.
Yes, the most comprehensive and well-known such list is at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade.
There are so many places A quick google search will yield many results But other than the main list on the wiki i think the following directories seemed pretty populated.

Spend Bitcoin - Directory with site reviews along side listings
The Bitcoin Review - Another directory including reviews of listings
Bitcoin Source - A fairly comprehensive directory of all things bitcoin
Shops4Bitcoin - Nothing Listed yet, but potentially a good future resource

Check http://coinmap.org this may be of help for you
Unfortunately the Bitcoin wiki (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade) has grown completely unwieldy and has many outdated / no-longer-working links.
Coinmap is a decent place if you're looking for "brick and mortar" businesses, and spendabit.co lists millions of products from a growing number of Bitcoin-enabled merchants (including the usual list -- Overstock.com, TigerDirect, etc).
