Yslow is consistently showing a first visit loading time for the front page of 8.5 seconds (with browser cache cleared), and an add to cart time of only 2.5 seconds.

As a comparison, front page load times of major web stores:

Amazon.com: 9 seconds
Buy.com:  9 seconds
Target.com:  15 seconds

So, you just ran into some network traffic.

Thank you - I’m the shop owner and self taught (and half assed) designer. So, it took me a ton of time and hair pulling, but I’m pretty proud of the end result.
