Hi Angelea :-) We`re right up the road from you, in Batavia.
The site looks normal to me, and yes, I see it going side-to-side.
That`s usually a good way to do things, but on a 20" monitor, it really
gets a bit hard to handle. If I have my numbers right, the common
monitor at the moment is 17"?
Two things that bothered me are the yellow tagline, and yellow for your
name. They`re almost impossible to read against the white background.
But that`s just little stuff.
As for the overall look and feel, maybe you could reduce your columns
of products to two instead of three, then make your "thumbnails"
larger. It`d work on both smaller and larger screens, I think.
The size of the font is hard to judge. I`m using a high-resolution
1280x1024 screen, but I`ve learned that what looks good to me comes
across huge on a more normal resolution. To solve the problem, I`m
making my font sizes "small," instead of points or percentages. "Small"
is pretty much the "normal" size in any browser with default settings.
Overall, I like the site enough, but it isn`t strongly attractive. I
suspect it`s partly due to the yellow and white color scheme. But
another issue is that you start right off talking about "candy wrapper
and gifts." What do candy wrappers have to do with anything? I couldn`t
seem to find that on the site, and it was confusing.
You could use some more description in your products, I think. The
pictures are very nice, but it just seems very sparse....not a lot of
selling going on.
