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!

Looks nice.. but the text on your header isn’t very easy to read. Visit your site without images or without CSS enabled.. you will see that a lot of code isn’t perfect.E.g. you will see a lot of <span>Home</span> at your navigation menu.

Good Job! I like the color scheme and the small details.
I like the small drop shadow on the sides of the content module.
Makes me want to buy some wine. Keep up the good work.

But nothing special since its fairly close to to the default looks....
