This is my first attempt at a ecommerce site. I would love to hear any feedback to make the site better.

Thanks in advance,

Well, it looks quite nice. But you may want to consider validating it. Your home page fails validation with 110 errors for HTML 4 Transitional

[a href=\"http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fbeanbagzilla.com%2F\" target=\"_blank\"]W3C Validator[/a]

Good Luck

Overall - ok.
The green is only allright.
I would make the left and right border a little darker to define the website width a little more.
The header of your page could do with a little work also. Perhaps a light background or something.

For the search -> put a javascript calender to help input dates.

I would also like ALL the text to be a little bigger.

Seems like the cart seems to work nicely - well done.

Rgds,
Steve

So... many... tables... THEY BURN!
Aside from the validation errors, the *shudder*tables*shudder*, and the terrible contrast between the dark green and the black, looks good!

Thanks to everyone for the feeback so far.

I'll definitly take a look at the validation and correct the issues there. Can't believe I missed those.

moberemk, can you explain what you mean with the table comments? Honestly not sure if they were good or bad comments... :)

Thanks again,
Beanbagzilla

Let me put it this way: to me, tables for layout is like kryptonite.

moberemk,

I really like the green / black colors on the site. I guess it's just personal preference.

Also, not sure why the tables are an issue. Does this pose a problem of some kind that I'm unaware of?

Thanks,
Beanbagzilla

It's partly personal preference, partly accessibility issues (tables just don't work well for a lot of accessibility tricks), partly clean code, and partly the flexibility of a CSS layout.
