i've had the site up for a while now, and finally made a sale today. the fun thing is, other than the sale, it solves the shipping problem for me. i've found that paypal will allow you to create an invoice for items, and i can add in the shipping. that way i can figure out what the overall cost will be, send the invoice via email, then, if agreeable, the customer can pay the invoice directly to my paypal account. worked out rather slick. almost forgot, she bought 2 of the walnut with maple inlay spaghetti measurers.
