NAICS 448320 Luggage and Leather Goods Stores ; SIC 5948 (these codes relate to the bricks and mortar type of store)

NAICS 448150 Clothing Accessory Stores ;  SIC 5611 Men’s and Boys’ Clothing and Accessory Stores (accessories); SIC 5632 (Women's Accessory and Specialty Stores (accessories); SIC 5699 Miscellaneous Apparel and Accessory Stores (accessories)

NAICS 454111 Electronic Shopping (this is not limited to the type of products that ebags offers).

Applying NAICS Codes

One source you can use to apply NAICS codes is the Business Patterns database from the U.S. Census Bureau.  This can help you determine what has been the trend in a particular industry from a National, County, Metro, and Zip Code perspective.  Please note, however, that this will probably not include those establishments that are purely web-based.
