just tried to fiddle with the shop and yes, i confirm that it is broken. i don't know what to do for a fix.. i wish our site wouldn't get fcked with so much. everything was working fine until the last time the server people took it offline. duncan is the one that got the site back up and .. upgraded it... and that knocked out the shop. the shop we use isn't being made anymore and is not supported on the version that we now have. the only way i can see getting it back is if we somehow downgrade to 1.0.12 from our current 1.0.13. it is probably the same reason why the upload image isn't working anymore.
there are other shops we can use.. but someone has to setup the products. i spent a lot of time making the shop we had. including making it play CD's... i doubt i have time to do such things again.
someone needs to go to: http://extensions.joomla.org/
and look through and read about the shops and pick one. then i can install it and then someone will need to do all of the inputting that i did before.
just use paypal to make buttons and stick them on pages in the site for the book or records..
simple 10 minute solution:
1. goto paypal create the buttons..
2. paste them on the front page in a box that say : Holiday Shop at the Forest (or something like that... )

i dont have much on on wednesday and could do some of that if some one tells me how to access the new store.
in the old shop we didnt actually have any "add to cart" system activated - rather just buy now buttons linking directly to pay pal site...
do *we* know how to link this virtuemart with the joomla backend?
troubleshooting this new "VirtueMart"......found a glitch: on checkout one arrives at a screen where the error "Error: Please select a Shipping Method." is shown. HOWEVER there is no Option to choose any shipping methods.

also - i would suggest that backups be made of the DB prior to any work on the sites backend.
