Hi Reg,

I took a look at your site and had a few thoughts from a design stand point.

1. The header and the images take up too much valuable real estate. Even though the site looks like there is a lot of stuff above the fold, in reality there isn't. I was confused as to where to look. The navigation is out of eyesight on the left and somewhat below the fold, especially when expanded. I actually would have never noticed the expansion except that I read the above posts.

2. I like the graphics for the different departments on the right, but they are a bit lost. Looks kind of like an after thought and seem to be distracting from the page.

3. Why is my shopping cart info at the bottom of the page? Internet standards put it at the top right hand corner. That is where users are used to seeing it.

Overall, I get a lot of confusion from the site layout. I think there are some structural changes that can be made to make the site more cohesive on all pages, but mostly the home page. This page is supposed to direct the user down the correct aisle so they can easily find what they need.

I did a google search to find similar sites to compare. I found one that has the same basic concept of this one. http://www.childrenskidsfurniture.com/ It is well organized, has nice colors and graphics.

I know you want us to be honest, and I don't want to be too harsh, but it looks very amateur ("home made") to me. Sorry, Reg. I would only expect the same truthfulness from you.. :)
