Hi! I think your products are real cute & look to be well made. 
The pink is a bit strong. But personaly I like the buttons you made,Ii think they are cute & quirky ...it works for the product.

The 2 other thingds that i see are on the bottom of the second page there isn;t a link to the 3rd, & a lot of the purses don't have measurments listed.

I will admit, I'm also kind of turned off by the MS Paint graphics, but BELIEVE ME, i use MS Paint all the time, and it is a wonderful, yet misunderstood, program. It's my companion to Adobe Photoshop 7, and I use both of them often. I agree that a more polished look would make the customer believe the your maturity and authority as a creator and it would also reflect better on the quality of your bags. I love the bags, but I do agree that some look washed out because of the colours. Now, I wouldn't say to scrap the pink and yellow if you like it, because after all, it is YOUR SITE. I just believe that a white background against the images of your purses will complement the designs and colors in your wares better. Pink and yellow and bright colour everything you want, except for backgrounds around those images of your wares. Smiley Now I'm not sure if it's my place to say this, but I think that maybe cleaning up the spelling and language and grammar and whatnot will really clean up the site too and make people believe that you are a true businesswoman. Maybe I'm just saying that because I'm heading into my 2nd year of University in an English-based area, I'm highly critical like that. So perhaps ignore that comment, unless other people notice that all the spelling and grammar errors are bothering them too, for one reason or another, and driving them away from buying your bags.

If you are processing orders through e-mail requests (which I see that you are) rather than through Paypal or any other such program, you should make it more simple. The simpler, the better. A form would be a great option. You can find lots of free scripts for mailing forms just by typing it into a search engine. Perhaps you could have a drop down menu with the names of all your wares, plus one for custom orders, and have a section for their comments or descriptions of custom items, and have their e-mail address there too. That way, they can simply fill out the form, press 'Submit', and they're on their way to having a bag from you! Forms are tricky to configure and such, but I'd at least look into it if I were you. People are lazy; the easier you make ordering, the more likely they are to order. Best of luck!

I think that it is fair.  I  would definately change the links.  Looking professional is very hard, but you have to in order to succeed.

Good luck!

The colors of your site blinded me.  I clicked away immediately and never even saw your product.  Shallow?  Perhaps.  True?  Yep. 
Good luck with your business! Smiley

I like your colors!!  They actually work with the look of your purses (the strong packaging graphics with bold colors).  Probably the people who don't like the website colors won't like the purse colors either ... ?
