    Hi and welcome!

    I quite like your site, very clean and simple. I’d change the footer to a horizontal list rather than one lone column. Let me know if I can help you with that :)

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks for your comments.
    Funny you should say that about the footer menu. I actually did have it like that before but ran into problems with responsiveness…. then I changed it to what it is. I agree though its not great. I will work on changing it in the future.

    Thanks very much for your offer of help.
    I have no idea what it would cost to implement a small change like that?

    :P

    Site looks great, nice and clean as you’d expect from a WooThemes theme!

    If you ever figure out how to make items line up when one of them has a longer title let me know, I’ve never figured it out! (eg here)

    Hi Hatchin,

    Not a wootheme. I do use woocommerce though. Love wordpress!

    Yes .. I did have products lining up. I recently decided to change it back …. maybe I should take it back lol.

    It is a little cleaner when the price boxes all line up. :D

    Your code will be a little different of course … but it could be something like this (obviously px numbers would have to change)


    .et-products img {
    padding-bottom: 2px;
    }
    .et-products h3 {
    min-height: 50px;
    }



    Code isn’t perfect. Every site will be made up of different code & text … hope that can help a little.

    Most of the products line up … not all though. Will have to look at it further if I want to change it properly. Haven’t checked it completely in responsiveness.
    Use code as a guide only .. if it helps.

    Thanks for your feedback :D

    Hi Chris and welcome

    Congrats on your online business – I would love to hear about how you decided on that name for PPE merchandise.

    Hi Sassy,

    Thanks for your message.

    Affinity Shop is an evolution so to speak.
    Back in 2002 I started my landscaping, maintenance & design business Affinity Gardens. I love garden work & plants with a passion.

    Though, I have always wanted to work with a product .. I like the idea of having a business that can run rain hail or shine, any location, doesn’t solely require my skills & expertise.

    So Affinity Shop evolved out of Affinity Gardens.
    I do understand that in a conventional sense Affinity Shop is not a great name as it doesn’t encapsulate what the business is about entirely.
    For SEO it’s not ideal.

    I have always liked Affinity. Affinity Gardens means at one with nature or gardens which epitomises what my business was about & how I operate.

    I still have a number of great clients & do garden work when the weather is good. Love the outdoor work with a passion. On beautiful spring days or changing autumn weather I get a great sense of pleasure & calm.

    I recently finished a diploma in photography. I also enjoy doing some photography work. I have a photography website … not promoting it or allowing it to be indexed by search engines.

    Just had a little baby girl so am spending plenty of time at home. Busy times but, the best days of my life. I am so blessed & in such a great, enjoyable place at the moment. Life is good.

    It would be great to complete the package with total financial freedom & a higher level of financial aspiration.
    I do value health & happiness far more than I do finances. :)

    Sorry to ramble.
