Forbes asked Overstock for their bitcoin list and they got it, so they shared with the rest

What I can say, however, is this: The two lists don’t line up. Not at all. By that I mean the top, say, 15th item on the Bitcoin buyers list is shirts and the top 15th item for all Overstock shoppers is appliances. Sheets, for some reason was the top purchased item by Bitcoin buyers while area rugs was the top item for general buyers. And so on. There was some, but not much overlap. Categories that made an appearance on both lists were area rugs, living room furniture, sheets, bedroom furniture, decorative accessories, appliances, cell phone accessories, perfumes and fragrances and men’s watches.

Other tidbits worth noting: Overstock confirmed what I suspected, that about 60% of its overall shoppers are women.Most significantly, a rep also told me that the company estimates that Bitcoin buyers have made some $500,000 in purchases since Jan. 9.
