To a point, I think she would sell anything, but she wasn't happy with Mr Rumbolds choice of merchandise in German Week either.

She wasn't happy with the German stuff because she thought she couldn't sell it.

The Naughty Knickers were another personal choice. She knew she could sell them but felt it was beneath her dignity.

In "Goodbye Mrs. Slocombe" when Humphries/Blanche is telling Rumbold that he'll never see her face in that store again, Blanche storms off with her dress up in the back and her ass showing. I know this was done for comedic effect but I always thought this was stupid as it would show that this is the type of customer that you wouldn't ever want back in the shop again.

Yep. Just a comedic effect, and I didn't find it all that funny.

She also wasn't too crazy about the Flexi-bra.

Oh, I HATE that bit! I understand that Humphries is supposed to be so flustered that he breaks out of character, but why would ANYONE hitch themselves up at the back when bolting up the stairs? Would a man grab his coat tails like that?

NO NO NO. It's just stupid, cheap and vulgar.
