I would suggest to put bit more effort into the product pictures, and make them bigger and nicer, more appealing to customers. I`m not sure I would spend any money in your shop, just because of the look of it. It just don`t look professional. I know this is the default opencart picture image size, but I just hate the 80x80px images on the category view, they don`t do any good for any product in any shop, the first thing I always do is to make these images bigger. You don`t necessarily need fancy design, but make the products to stand out.

I agree, the quality of some of the product images is quite poor and do not give the option of a much bigger image when clicked on. With a decent digital camera you should be able to get far superior images produced for the 'zoom in' view. I would also recommend getting a better logo design. Using WordArt for a crafts company logo doesn't bode well.

You have clear contact details and the site seems easy enough to navigate but it is a very basic looking site (mostly white) and being that you supply craft items I would recommend adding some colour or even purchasing a template. This will give the site a much better appeal and hopefully entice potential customers to stay on the site longer for a browse and hopefully a purchase. Take a look at this OpenCart craft site for example: http://www.turnersart.co.uk

Templates:

http://themeforest.net/category/ecommerce/opencart

http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... &order=ASC

Sorry to sound negative but I do think if you take on board the feedback received so far you will be able to make the site look much more appealing.

Best of luck!

I agree with the above mentioned,

there are great templates available for little or no cost that could be in use. As always, quality images come to play an important part, so I would suggest you look for some or ask your providers to send you.

I would also suggest you include a social twist. Connect your e-store with your twitter and Facebook accounts, make the about us, contact, as well as location informations visible from a first glance.

Here is an example of what Im suggesting: http://goo.gl/XAcFw

Best of luck !
