Hello Magento Folk
I wanted to first start by thanking the many community members who gave us excellent advice when we were stuck during the development of this site. I tip my hat (if I were wearing a hat) to all of you for your help!
This site development is a basic Magento resking with a few extra items:
1. We added a featured items call out on the homepage that pulls from an external CMS
2. We skinned a wordpress blog to match the look and feel
3. Did a heavy reskin of the contact page
Basically, though we kept it real simple and tried to create a unique look within the basic Magento UI… in our opinion, no need to reinvent a well-crafted wheel
Your feedback is very much appreciated!
