How much would a embroidered silk purse (and other things!) cost in the 1890’s?

I’m writing a novel set in the London East End in the 1890’s. I’ve got a situation where one of my characters sells an embroidered silk purse she has been given to an aquaintance from the West End… how much would she sell it for? I though a guinea? Do you agree? Then supposing she had this amount, what could she buy with it? How much would a proper bed cost? A pair of boots? Or a winter coat?? Thank you, Nicola Batty.

the other things would be 6p…10s 71/2p…and a bob, and two florin
