Consider using this as a mini "About Us" section on your homepage. You could include a brief paragraph here to introduce yourself and talk about your story, vision or mission statement. Then add one or - even better! - two images, for a nice overlapping layout effect.
Use this section to create some callout text on your page, or add more details about your shop, services, promotions, etc.
You can keep the background color solid or use a background image instead.
