It's been slow going these first few months, but things are starting to pickup, albeit slower than I'd hoped.
June = made rent, and maybe half the phone.
July was 6% better than June
August was 34% better than June
Sept was 22% better than June
Oct was 55% better than June (helped considerably by finally getting the internet sales going) and almost broke even with expenses ... So it shouldn't be too much longer before I can start claiming it's been successful.

Got a call from a customer about an online order they want to return, their fault more or less, but I'm not going to dispute it. Still a $250 is going to put a bit of a damper on the online sales. Some days it just doesn't pay to open the store... :}
Posted everything listed in the database (as of today) on a blog here for direct sales.
