exellent site

Your site is clean, fresh and has everything I was looking for, personally, great guides and links to things I was actually interested in. Reassuring to have the phone number to hand to get in touch with someone! But the only criticism I have, is that there's an awful lot of 'sold out' items on display, but then again it hints at the site being popular, and has made me want to keep an eye out for future sales, so I wouldn't change that exactly, but maybe have some close alternatives to look at? so overall It's a great site! :)
