What does a shop=bags store sell? Luggage? I would use shop=travel.

While I always thought a "haberdashery" sold hats and other mens 
accessories, it's quite an old-fashioned word, and rarely used in the US. 
Apparently, it also has a different meaning in the UK, according to 
wiktionary and M-W. I'd avoid it on these grounds and use 
shop=mens_clothing or maybe mens_accessories for the former. For a "yarn 
barn", the US chain Michael's has such things as well as art supplies and 
has been tagged shop={craft|crafts|art}.
