I would like to know what people in the forum think about my website, the items for sale, the prices, etc. Be honest. Thanks!

Splash page - I find it needless and pointless. It's just another page separating your visitor and potential customer from your products.

Main - You have updates but you don't have any form of introduction (i.e. 'Welcome to my website, we sell X, Y and Z'). An introduction would help potential customers see if they'd be interested in looking further into your website. Also, some photos of products would be helpful as well.

I think that your prices are fair. You might want to mention if your shipping includes tracking/delivery confirmation. As well as what currency your prices are in (I'm assuming USD, but since you mention shipping to Canada as well, it could be CAD for all I know).

Also, see if you can install a shopping cart system to streamline your payment system. For impulse shoppers, they won't want to wait for you to get back to them with an invoice. And it makes it easier for you to have everything in a more systematic way for seeing what they want and where you're sending it to. You might also mention on your main page (and at the bottom of every page) payment options that you accept (i.e. Paypal, credit card via processing website, money orders, etc). And with that in mind, you'll want to get a Privacy Policy page up as well, since people are trusting you with their money (and other personal information).

Good luck!

I added a shopping cart to my website and added more shopping options, shipping discounts, and other really nice stuff. Please check it out and give me your opinion. Be honest, let me know if you think there's something I should change and why. Thank you!

I have never seen it before, but I think the pictures are WAY to hard to see. Even when you enlarge them they are quite small, and low light. Perhaps do several shots from different angle with a greater light source. I think that stuffs great, I was instantly interested in the leather pouches, but I can hardly see them!

That just my opinion. Look like your working hard! Keep it up babe!

Your stuff is really great.  The site loads a little slowly, and looks like it loads the whole page every time you click on something?  Maybe get it so that only the center frame loads, or the center frame and side bar.

Also, your copy really doesn't do your products justice.  It just describes how you made a particular product, but in such plain details that I think most people could try to recreate it.  Try expounding on a piece, talking about why you made it, how it makes you feel, the materials involved, etc.  Really sell it to the shopper!
