I love this theme. It is really easy to use and looks great. There is a lot of customization that you can add and look different from most other websites. The support team is also great, they get back to you quickly and document any issues so that people who have the same question later can easily find a step by step answer. I would highly reccomend this template!

I'm a little late writing this review, but I've been using this theme for a long time now and still totally in love with it! Super versatile and easy to customize look to fit your shop's style. When I needed assistance the developers were quick and helpful, can't recommend it enough!
