The site looks good. However, many people that start this type of site have a lot of difficulty ranking well in the search engines due to extreme product diversity. You will reap bigger benefits by concentrating on other forms of advertising, print, radio, tv, etc.

If you do go the SE route here are some things to consider: Your meta tags need help. Most pages do not have a description and they have only a couple of keywords. This doesn't give the SEs much to go on. Be sure your page titles include keywords. Try to add more body text which supports your keywords. When you do submit be sure you submit the main index page and not the flash page. The 3k of javascript on each page ain't gonna help anything.
