do not agree with zulu, i liked the backround text. IMHO dog is buried elsewhere : when you show me the necklace(or whatever) i want to look at it, clear and neat - right now the item stays a little transparent and THEN the backround text is disturbing. i liked your site, good!
why use flash when you dont make it dynamic? let it roll,at least it was fresh and ideas as much as i'v seen were not copied from some guru's site.
looking at your intro there must be something terribly wrong - all the bitmaps, tweens and music when optimized could possibly not be the 400 K. i think there is a way to find "a happy middle"
all the best,
