The image menu in the middle has too much white space going on. I would look into either larger images or shrinking the alloted space for it. I would also look into shrinking the footer. The look is nice and clean. Also another personal pref is to have the cart bar positioned at the top of the header but thats only a pref. Nice temp.

Thanks for suggestion. I thought white space is good in website. I can't put all 5 categories in one raw because that get's very crowded. I think I will have to put some subcategories there to fill the space.

Thanks again.

For starters, you both have the same identical 52 code warnings as shown below ... too much white space can be controlled thru your CSS template, if you know what you're doing and looking at.

Beyond that, your template wasn't started off with the mandatory <!DOCTYPE Declaration> which helped create the following code warnings that should be fixed for validation, and to ensure your site displays properly in all browsers:
