    INTRO The mark of my three-year journey is in three months (or learning from failure.)

    I just opened my first store (not final photos) should I advertise already?

    Start now! I remember reading that if you aren't embarrassed by your first product or launch than you waited too long. Although in your case the site looks great. I browsed through it and all the pages opened quickly and everything looks really clean. I agree with an earlier post, build as...
