I’ve got a friend who’s just done exactly the same as you. She’s using wp-ecommerce as well as some other plugins for more functionality. I’ll check what they are and get back to you.

Contact Form 7 is great too, I’ve recently switched to it after using Cforms II. I got fed up with having to update Cforms II manually rather than through the dashboard, and Contact Form 7 does everything I need it to.

A couple of other plugins you might like to check out:

Exclude Pages – hides the pages of your site that you don’t want included in the menu http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/exclude-pages/

Database Backup – ESSENTIAL!!! http://austinmatzko.com/wordpress-plugins/wp-db-backup/

WP-Spamfree – if you use Akismet you have to pay for the API key on a commercial site. WP-Spamfree is free and (in my opinion) works better than Akismet http://www.polepositionmarketing.com/library/wp-spamfree/

WP-SuperCache to speed up your site http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-super-cache/download/

There’s more really useful plugins, but those are the one’s that you have to have.
