[Tagging] Rendering for shop=boutique/fashion on default style

While "boutique" is used most often to refer to small clothing stores, I 
have also seen the term used to small stores selling other types of goods. 
I think that additional tagging indicating the type of merchandise sold is 
a good idea.  It seems to be a marketing term implying "small, and using 
snob appeal to justify elevated prices."
