Although my browser has been modified to accept "cookies", I am still unable to create a shopping cart on Stumps Party. What should I do?

If you are still unable to create a shopping cart after changing your browser to accept cookies, you are probably experiencing a memory cache problem. As your computer stores your previous web transactions in its cache files, it probably has not yet recognized your cookie changes. First try clicking on the "Refresh" or "Reload" button, which can be found on you browser's navigation bar. If that does not work, shut down all browser windows to clear the caching issue.
