You can use any tag you want. If you go to advanced in Potlatch (since I guess you're using only presets), you can set the key as shop and then write the kind of shop as value. If you choose a random preset before you select advanced you can see how that tag is written, and just replace that value with the value of your choosing.

Note that odd shop values will probably not be rendered on the standard Mapnik rendering though.

It's also helpful to see what values people have used for "shop" in the past:

As Grillo says you can add your own tags ( there is a wool shop ) but if you need a new icon the docs have links to making them http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Icons
