    We've changed our look a bit. The idea is to make the website simpler to use and easier on the eyes. The New Logo matches the one we have in our actual store (so we decided to switch) and we carried over most of the colors from the old website. We'll have some helpful new additions soon (a "real" homepage, account info and a resource center, for example). There are still a ton of little tweaks to make in regard to the graphics and set up, but we should have them finished up early next week. No account info has changed- just the website appearance. We hope you find the changes beneficial and your shopping experience more enjoyable. -Cam, owner
