Very nice - did you build it off of the modern theme?  What did you use for your “slideshow” in your masthead?

Built off the Modern Theme . About the slide show, I found this post http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/14895/ which helped me in achieving that.

Hey, great looking site.

A few constructive criticisms.

-There is a default welcome message showing!
-The category and product pages could represent the site feel a little better, you have the main page looking so good. you should bring some of that color and style in.
-The slideshow loads very oddly, I see all three images over top of the page then they collapse on themselves. Have you looked at fadeshow.js I have it running here at
dgbremner.com
I like it because it loads the first image in your slideshow, then during the delay between images it loads the next image. Its easier on the initial page load because you aren’t waiting for all the images to load. It queues them up sequential and it makes the slideshow look seamless.
