Hello! This site is loading fast for me. In less than 3 seconds it is loaded for me. It might be your friend's internet connection. I have a Comcast High Speed internet connection. Does your friends have a fast internet connection or a slow one? (Like slow ones could be dial-up, etc.)

A good tool to use to see what is making your website slow an see how long it takes your website to load, you should go to: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/

Hope this helps.

Hi Sarah

Your online store also loaded quite quickly for me, but your pictures loaded slowly.

I checked the sizes of your pictures and some of them are larger than you need to have on your online store page. This can slow down the loading time of the page.

You may want to consider reducing the file size or optimizing your pictures. Have a look at these tutorials that may help you with your images: Optimizing the pictures you add to your site and Images and More!.

I hope this helps to improve the loading time of your online store page.
