Original Post

I've added a couple of extra pics to my "about" section and the second one has some quotes from my awesome customers on it. I am worried that it might seem a bit up myself or vulgar. Could you smashers have a little peek and tell me if you think it's ok or should I rip it down immediately and sit in a corner facing the wall until I've learned my lesson?

Nah. Displaying testimonials is very common and a practice of professionalism; more so in Etsy's case because there's proof of their authenticy in the feedback. I say it's a good idea.

I really like your about page slideshow, it gives a more personal feeling, and the first pic made me lol. :p
