When and how did you start online shoppee?

I realized that there is no e-store which sells complete range of antique, traditional, handicraft products especially wooden handicrafts. So I decided that I will lay the brick for such store and by god grace Online Shoppee, the unique handicraft e-gallery came into existence.
How is onlineshoppe.com doing so far?

If I should opt for PPC or SEO or combination of both or I should make competitors my medium of promotion.
