Who is hosting your website? When I clicked on the different links I could see your IP address rather than the website url... you may want to see if you can get that fixed. When I clicked on Contact (need to clean that up a bit) and then clicked on Store, I got the following error: The requested URL /store.html was not found on this server.

You also need to add more content. Search engines love text and you need a lot more of it...

Also, get rid of the frames you have in the About part. They are unncessary and make navigation easier. Also, some search engines don't recognize frames.

Finally, put your link on EVERYTHING! Every board you visit, every e-mail you send, every thing!

You could have links up the wazoo and still not get enough traffic. What you have to look for is product/self promotion as well as website.

You have some interesting clothing, but the choices are very limited. If you had a full range of products I might have some advice. I would search locally for sales opportunities.
