have been online for about 2 weeks now and am getting some ok-ish traffic and a few add-to-cart but no sales yet.
would like some constructive feedback on my store

Hey Kloud Nine Sleep,
Store lacks "professionalism" to a certain extent. Look into the below-mentioned pointers to improve it.
Expecting a better store performance in the coming time.
Victor's here, I've spent a few minutes on your store & been hopeful that I can give you some recommendations which could help to improve the overall conversion rate of your store.
First thing, I love the color palette that you chose to use on your store, it does look like to give me a healthy sleep time. However, you can consider reducing the number of colors so that the store will look much more consistent & align with your brand mood - which I refer to the logo color on the header.
The second thing is about navigation. One way to improve its efficiency is to show the dropdown options whenever your visitors mouse over the category. It will definitely make it easier to navigate through your site.
I believe that you can add more things to your homepage for experiments. Why not introduce your brand before showing visitors with all products that you sell? I encourage you to add some trust badges & also a section for testimonials on the homepage. You can take Etsy homepage as a reference. It will definitely help you to increase engagement on your home page.
Some aesthetic aspects that should be fixed:
"Write review" button goes under the contrast score while I mouse over on it.
This form looks like coming from outer space. It doesn't align with the design of your site. Also, the spacing of this form should be fixed too.
You should also spend time optimizing the essential pages such as the About Us page, Contact page. It's where visitors would know who you are & what is your brand message.
I hope my recommendations will help you in some ways. Feel free to let me know if you have any concerns.
thank you for your well thought out reply.
some of the feedback that you raised i believe has to do with the theme that i am using (i am using Debut) and have to work within its limitations.
(not live yet)
i have made a color edit to my logo to bring it more in-line with my color palette.
For the Product Tabs i have darkened the background color and that makes the text a little more readable.
and i have changed the "Contact Us" form to be more in line with the color palette.
can you suggest an app (preferably free) that can do the mouse-over for the menus.
It's good to know that some of my advice helps. For your concern about the hover effect on the navigation menu, I found a topic that may help you with the Debut theme, please check it out & let me know if it solves the problem :D
