Art and Donna Carpenter have created a new web business to help college students decorate their dorms for less, offering a wide variety of products for returning students looking to decorate their living space.

The banner for the recently-opened site http://www.CarpentersCastle.com proudly proclaims "Where you can live like royalty on a pauper's budget," and the selection available backs up that claim. Faux fur bedspreads, aromatherapy incense sets, dragon statuettes -- the selection is both eccentric and modestly priced. It's obvious that Art and Donna Carpenter have a clear target market for their new business.

"We cater to college students returning to school, helping them set up their rooms and out-of-home residences," says Art Carpenter, who -- along with his wife Donna -- began http://www.CarpentersCastle.com as a budget-friendly home décor business. "We like to help people decorate with style, but at a low price. We'd like to see our products in the dorms all around the area."

But starting a business wasn't easy from the outset. "My husband is disabled," explains Donna, "and we needed something we could do together. We decided that web sites are the wave of the future, and it's something we can do from home. We started looking around until we could find something good."

And find something they did; http://www.CarpentersCastle.com currently has over 3,000 products, allowing for customers to explore a virtual treasure trove of home accents, including fanciful figurines, computer desks, and clever door signs. But the store goes beyond mere selection, as Art and Donna Carpenter are dedicated to true value and customer service. "If you don't like the prices, just call us and we'll talk to you about it. We will deal!" affirms Art enthusiastically.

In fact, CarpentersCastle.com created a blog at http://www.CarpentersCastle.net to complement their site, allowing customers to contact the couple directly and discuss the products and prices conveniently. With that type of business mentality, it's likely their products will be spotted all over a campus near you.
