Jane Austen Modern Fashion Throwdown

Inquiring Readers: Sir Bingley is starting a shop where Jane Austen's heroines would purchase items if they were living in the modern era. The online shop will offer for sale chic clothing, teas, journals, chic home decor, candles, and accessories at up to 70% off. But in order to provide the most tempting goods to this discerning customer, Sir Bingley is still doing market research.

His question to you is: out of the product types below, what would be your top three favorite categories that you, or your friends, would love to be able to obtain new at 40% to 70% off of retail from independent designers? The styling would be similar to that of a classic- vintage-bohemian kind of a "Jane Austen-ish" Anthropologie at a discount.

1) Clothing - dresses, jackets, shirts, blouses, sweaters, denim, etc.
2) Jewelry- earings, bracelets, necklaces, rings, jewelry boxes
3) Shoes - heels, wedges, flats, sandals, boots, etc.
4) Bags - handbags, purses
5) Accessories - scarves, wraps, belts, beanies, hats, hair accessories
6) Kitchen - baking tools and access., chic aprons, oven mitts, chic dishes/serveware.
7) Writing and Journaling - chic journals, stationary, notepads, organizational cubbies
8) Knitting, Sewing, Crocheting - tools, fabrics, tools, etc.
9) Comfort - Excellent Tea, chic tea pots, throws/blankets, books.
10) Personal Effects - candles, fragrances, soaps, bubble baths, skin care

Please keep your choice to three products! I for one can't wait to see what this online shopping experience will be like!
