News & Updates
This has been a busy month at All Things Cherokee. I upgraded the site with a new shopping cart. The new cart offers all sorts of great new features, including my favorite -- Gift Certificates! So if you know someone who'd love some Cherokee books, art, gifts, research, etc you can get them a gift certificate at All Things Cherokee.
The new shopping cart is just the first step in a plan to grow the books, gifts, and art sections of the site. Stay tuned for updates. Also, the cart will be going through a nice redesign in the coming weeks to make it match the rest of the site. So it's all work, work, work around here, but I'm extremely excited about the changes! Of course, in all the construction mess, it's possible I overlooked a link or two, so if you happen to come across any broken links or error messages, please contact me to let me know. Thanks!
