Thanks for the replies. I'll try to be patient and just concentrate on attracting customers (all the while bleeding money).
I couldn't keep the online store on the old site. Having an online store selling niche items and also having a directory of paid ads fpr brick and mortar stores selling the same niche products isn't the best combination. Some retailers get mad. Google also didn't seem to like it.
I'm pleased with the design and the function of the site, although I paid $8000 to a crook who designed the site and left me to fix things that didn't work after he got paid.
I know that people were maxing out their credit cards earlier this year, buying stuff they thought was going to be banned. (Interesting that they'd buy stuff they thought would be banned. They obviously had no intention of turning the stuff in.) Now they're broke.
I guess I just need to wait for the seasonal sales bump.
