Thanks again for the comments.  Some of the spelling errors you mentioned are in images so they will take  a little more work...buuuut I am almost ready to do an update.  Smiley  So those images will likely change soon anyways.
I will be participating in an auction to benefit Bichon (dog) rescues soon and will have that info on my site!

I was so pleased to hear that many folks were pleasently surprised by my site. Smiley

Another thing.... I am loking for opinions, I am considering changng the plaid seasonally to matcht he colors of the current season.  Good? Bad?


i love whales.

Ooh, I LOVE the layout. It is way too cute.. the colors look beautiful together! I think you definitely need more pictures, though, so we know what the lining looks like and everything. If you look at http://www.sewingstars.com, she takes lots of pictures and I think that helps everyone to be able to tell the good quality of the items. Smiley

I really love it, though. All your stuff is adorable and looks very well made Smiley I'm sure you'll be selling loads in no time! Cheesy

Oh, just something I noticed - the "Featured Product" link on the front page doesn't open inside the frame. Cheesy

Your prices are very low, which is great.. I think you might be able to charge a little bit more for your time and effort, to make it more worthwhile for you. Maybe you could start with lower prices to attract customers, then, with newer items, raise the prices gradually.

I agree with everyone - the site is very professional looking and easy to navigate. The design is clean and uncluttered. I design websites for a living so I've seen my share of bad and good ones!

My comments:
- I agree with the above comments regarding the additional pictures of the products. I would love to see swatches of the fabrics and the inside of the purses. It's nice to see the details - ie. type of zippers, lining color, etc.

- This next comment is one of those just little picky things I notice. The phone image in the contact us page could go at least 20% smaller. It stands out from the rest of the site where your proportions are more delicate and consistent.

- What color is used for the initial on the monogrammed purse?

Your products look very well crafted and I'm sure your site will be a hit!

What a super cute site - and it looks very professional.

I love the little button bobby pin clips! Smiley Super Sweet!

A couple more little things:

1. You have a button Purses and Totes. Next to this button there is a button Accessories. I would specify what kind of accessories - I would say 'Hair accessories', or 'Bobby Pins', or simply 'Pins'. Because the definition of the word Accessories is very W I D E  , and btw includes Purses and Totes also.

2. http://www.theplaidroom.com/purse.html

I have two scroll bars on the same page. All this pictures would fit one page without a single scroll bar.

3. Another thing on the same page - The names of the second row bags are right above the third row pictures. So I was confused - A tote with dragonflies had a name 'B&W Plaid Purse'  Shocked

Other than that your site looks great!

I love the site. I saw the Vintage Rose Handbag and now I am actually crying. Why?

My parents don't want me ordering things online "right now."

I love that bag.

Keep up the good work.

I think I love you...
