Building a Small E-Commerce Website

My dad is a photographer in Ohio and specializes in nature photography in the Cuyahoga Valley and northeastern Ohio. For several years he's been bugging his son ("you used to work at Amazon!") to help him set up a website to sell his notecards and fine art prints. Well over Christmas I did it.

I did a bit of research looking at the different options. I really wanted a few things:

I settled on using Shopify and I'm pretty happy with the results. There are a few quirks to the solution (using their Liquid macro facility for one), but overall Shopify satisfied our needs.

You can see the website at Tom Jones Buckeye Photos. It's still a bit of a work in progress, but take a look. I'd love to hear about other people's experiences setting up small business websites.
