Hi Stephen,

 

Yes Wix is really good about keeping email data secure but it isn't free unfortunately.  :thumbsup:

David,
Please keep website updates in this thread so as not to flood the board with multiple threads on the same site. Thanks.

Hello Brian,

Ok no problem. I will post all my Rain Dragon Fine Arts website updates here. Can my Tsuba Otaku website updates be in another topic as it is a different website (URL) and is non commercial. Send me a PM if you want me to pay for Rain Dragon Fine Arts update as that website is commercial in nature. Than you.

Thank you all!  It is always nice to feel appreciated after heavily investing in my start up business.  I hope to post a Nihonto or two for sale on the business website sooner than later.  :glee:

David,

 

By my estimation all seems essentially perfect, format and function are there.....you could tweak endlessly but it isn't necessary.  BTW, the photography is very good!

I just wanted to say that I've done business with David in the past. He was a pleasure to worth with in those transactions. A few of his listed items were from my personal collection of Japanese Art, and I was particularly picky in choosing the best quality for the money for all of them.
