You have 177 markup validation errors. The page cannot be completely properly validated because you have no doctype. Fix that first, then move on to the rest of the errors.

The one thing that bothers me at first sight are your images. Your main logo has a white border around it that makes it look like it was originally on a white background and then "cut out" to be made transparent. The same goes for your borders around the boxes on your site.

Your site makes heavy use of tables. You might want to look into going the XHTML/CSS route to help separate content from presentation. Don't worry, if you're new to XHTML/CSS, there are some good introductory tutorials at W3Schools.com as well as others on the Internet.

I was expecting some simple rollover effects on your main menu at the top...

You're off to a good start. You just need to do some graphics and code maintenance.

I think you should look at some alternate color choices. And spork is right about the logo/header.
And the bgimage at the top is pushing the table to be taller, when the bgimage is not repeating....make the header image smaller so this does not happen....because i dont think it looks good.

Good luck

Comic Sans. Please kill me.

I would never buy anything from a company with a site like that.

I think you should add a payment option in upfront.

2) you should correct errors in your source code ... 180 errors
