    It's a nice site and it looks like a lot of work has gone into getting all the details right.

    Hi Adam,
    First off, i have to say i love the color scheme and the overall look of the site; you're definitely on the right path so keep up the good work.
    Now there's a few thing i'd pay attention to: first, make your logo clickable so people can return to your homepage by clicking on it. It's a common UI pattern so you might as well consider it, it'll take you like 2 seconds to get it done.

    Also, i'd consider moving the "purchase" button to the bottom of the page, or at least putting a second one at the bottom. I guess what really matters here is selling the items, so i believe the button should be more prominent. changing color on hover might be a good idea.
    Moreover, i think you should let people know that when they hit purchase they'll be taken out of the website to paypal; when i did it it cought me by surprise since it's something i did not want to do. try looking at the process e-commerce websites follow for ideas on how to implement this so your clients feel at ease.
    hope this helps!

    I like it, really good!

    Only improvements are that there isn't enough text/typography on the home page and the 2 gray tones at the footer are a little too plain. Would look better either lighter or darker.

    But everybody has a different opinion of what they like.

    Great design I would try to keep a flow with some action buttons after some of the page content and watch the image compression. but over a clean look and a great site.

    Hello i'm new to this, Like the design to your website, does anyone realize the widget does not give the customer the option to add a quantity. I also notice the custom button on the widget is not functioning. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

    Beautiful site Adam! It's a perfect balance of simple and elegant. Especially love the use of Dynamic Slide on the home page. Would be awesome to see a more smooth interaction for the button rollovers on your 'Products' page. Perhaps using a transition in your States menu to give it a fade or a slight movement??? Just thinking out loud! AWESOME work!
