    Not too bad. Your header is pretty bland though for taking up as much space as it does. Prehaps either shrinking the size or adding and image would help.

    Also, the links to other assorted sites are probably bad to put on a site that is trying to sell products. I can see if your trying to draw in viewers but if you can spare the cash you would probably do better just to advertise, either locally or online. The yahoo directory is a good place to be in if you have the money (I think it's 300$). Either way I'd cut back if I were you, you have 18 links on your main page that go to other sites, that alone would disuade me from buying anything for your site.

    Oh yeah, kill the image boarders. <img border="0"> I think in html, <img style="border-style: none"> in CSS

    Code:
    <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Namo WebEditor v5.0(Trial)">
    <meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
    Frontpage. Many wold say that is bad.

    Otherwise, reasonably good site, but you need an image to spruce up your logo, and also get rid of those image borders - they annoy me.

    *sighs*

    Not that it's that bad, but I just find this to be a rather "cookie-cutter" design, that's all....

    1. There's no rollovers for any of the links, including the nav menu - dull and boring - you need these to catch the attention of most users - it's the norm these days and has been fro quite some time - not using them either makes you site look dated or "out-of-the-times" - sorry to be blunt about that point, but it is a major one in my books.

    2. Banner - again... B-O-R-I-N-G - you really do need to spruce up that banner of yours - it's you site/company banner/logo - it needs to stand out more. Right now it is very plain. It doesn't need to be all flashy and such, just a bit more distinctive.

    3. Product links - some open up new windows, some don't - you need better consistency on that point (preferably not opening new windows - these just confuse a lot of people)

    You really don;t have that much to correct on this site to make it better - just a few small items that would go a long way to bettering your site - imensely

    I'll just add a couple of things to what tibberous, justlivyalife and Deleriums has said.

    1. Logo. Instead of depending on a font, develop a logo. Couple of swooshes, a fancy font, couple of different colors perhaps.

    2. For product descriptions on the main page, use a san-serif font, such as Arial, verdana, helvetica, etc, to be consistent with other elements on the page.

    3. Your source code has SPAN tags and style attribute used all over the place. Try using an external style sheet. That will make the source cleaner and, in turn, easier to update.

    On top of what others have said, I would add some content to the main page. Your homepage looks a little empty, all it has are two products and a link to an online jigsaw puzzle on it.

    Also, your Return and Privacy policies give 404 errors.

    On top of everything already said . My MAIN helpful advice is right on with nsr81. I viewed your code and saw style attributes EVERYWHERE. Those should mostly be used to make exceptions to base styles defined in an EXTERNAL style sheet. Its very easy to make. Just type one up in notepad, save it as .css and link it in your main page.

    I am a real stickler on this, as I have said it before and will say it again:

    Get rid of the Times New Roman Font.

    It is insane how unprofessional the font makes a site look. I say go verdana, sans-serif, or arial.
