    Definitely a good mix between high and lower priced products. Although I love the menu, I personally would place it beneath the logo. It's quite a hassle to move from one category to another now, which is likely to happen more frequent if you add more products in the future. Keep up the good work!

      Definitely a nice idea ! How would you tackle this on mobile?

        I think I would make the categories directly accessible, e.g. directly displayed in the screen and the other menu options (home, wishlist, about etc.) accessible through a hamburger menu, since these are secondary. That would mean that you would have to combine some of the categories. You could eventually make the home page a kind of introduction to the different categories. There are a lot articles that discuss the usage of hamburger menu's and results have shown that directly accessible menu items have a higher conversion rate.

    What is the difference between a site like this and www.canopy.co?

    Problem I have with sites like these is that they just pick seemingly random items that are way overpriced. Some things are cool - like $11 professional camera cleaning kit...but most of the items on here are more like the $75 baking sheet.

      Hi Eric,

      Thanks for your feedback. Sad to hear that you feel that the items are "random". We want to publish a diversified collection of products. After the holidays we will pivot to a product / brand discovery guide. We love small brands with rich stories that focus on durability and quality of a product. We have to start somewhere ;).

        Fair enough. I still don't understand the difference between your site and www.canopy.co, other than the fact that canopy seems to only show amazon products.

          I can imagine that. There are two fundamental differences. First of all, canopy is curated by the community. WF is curated by us. Next to that, Canopy is limited to showing products that are listed on Amazon www.whateverforever.co is not.

    Looks nice, but if I have the currency set to GBP it would be nice if the links went to the UK amazon store.

    Really love the guide! Clean and minimal design, with a good focus on flow! Also really like the Monocle guides series.

    As a pointer, maybe you can delay loading all the product on the homepage. The page will load faster which will optimize the experience.

      Thanks for the kind words and feedback! Definitely a valid point to make some sort of infinite scroll function on the homepage. We will put it on the roadmap!
