What It Looks Like:
Listings consist of a product image or logo and a paragraph of description. Unlike some other "Victorian malls," you can provide up to 100 words about your product -- enough to give readers vital information about what you have to offer. To attract readers to the Marketplace, selected images from each category will be displayed in the left column of the site, linking back to the marketplace pages. These "teaser" links will appear throughout the site.
Here's a sample Victorian Marketplace listing:
VICTORIAN HEART SHOPPE... gifts and glimpses of the Victorian era!

accessories, to their arts and crafts, to their homes and gardens, some traditions
still live on. Victorian Heart Shoppe Mall bids you welcome! Because women love to
window-shop, we have searched the internet and brought together some of the finest
online shopping sites available. All of them have a flair for that personalized,
feminine touch of a bygone era. Search our fine assortment of Victorian gifts,
jewelry, home decor, and crafts. http://www.victorianheartshoppe.com
