I have added a store to my web site. I would appreciate some feedback on the selection of items available through the store. If you go to my website www.homerthedulcimer.com and go to my store page Where is Homer (Bookstore) and click on the link at the bottom of the page you will go to my Homer Dulcimer Shop to see what I have for sale with Homer

Thanks
Dennis

Homer is very cute but is there any way to darken his lines? He is a bit hard to see against a white background. Also I think you could put his name on the shirts and other items. Also, you could have Dulcimer Xing on the shirts with a grouping of Homer and other characters. I realize the book is black and white but I think you could use color on the merchandise. Another thought is maybe use a good quote from the book. Does Homer have any special saying? Good luck with this project!

Very nicely laid out! The only thing I noticed is that Homer is not on all the viewing options. To me, this leads to confusion - is the shirt supposed to have Homer on it or not as some views show the shirt as being plain with no decal. Perhaps you may want to consider applying Homer to all your shirts or making a distinction between the two.

Diane offered some great suggestions as well! I wish you the best of luck with this venture!

Diane, thanks for checking the store out. This is a work in progress so I will be adding/subtracting and modifying as time goes by. I will have to work on seeing if I can make the lines darker and adding text to the shirts. I was working on this late last night to get the site up on my website.
Sanja the view you are seeing without any picture is the back of the shirt. I only placed the logo on the front side.

Someone informed me of another store site. I checked them out and liked how well it worked with my website. They provide a flash panel so potential buyers can see the merchandise without going to the other site. Let me know how this store looks?

Hmm... I personally think I like the other store better. For me, I found it easier to navigate and to see all the products you have to offer.

But, if you prefer this one then by all means, go for it! You can always do a test run and then try the other one and see which seems to garner you more sales.
