What things would a woman of that time have on her or in her home? COMMENT
The folk of medieval Western Europe were "possession-poor" compared to the mundane world of 2006. Even the rich took their personal furnishings with them when the Lord of an Honour trvalled from Manor to Manor of his Estates, on the business of governing and managing his Fief.
How many possessions and of what quality would not only depend on "chosen" Social Station, but also upon the Polity in which your "Character" lives. Yeoman and peasants in mediæval England were 'wealthy' compared to Frankish peasants - whose overlords treated them as little better than Serfs, for example.
The Blessings of God be upon your House and your Works, now, and until The Judgement.
Yours in Service,
