Point sizes are irrelevant on-screen — what the viewer sees has much to do with what he sees it with! I thought your text (the running grey text, I mean) was very readable. It looked like 19 or 18 on the Safari font prefs scale. Might be a problem for people viewing with a narrow screen (awkward line breaks), but it looked good and was very easy to read.

Is that expensive?
No! A bargain. But your site does have a restrained, high-quality look. Throw in some blinking star-shaped images advertising low, low prices, and you’ll be fine!
