Patsy Stone, The Cure for Consumerism
As our AbFab countdown continues after a long recovery phase, we want to share some of our favorite Absolutely Fabulous moments from time to time. Filming of the foibles of Holland Park’s bad girls has already finished, with a Christmas special slated at the end of this year and two more for next summer during the 2012 London Olympics.

And to recoup the revenues, the stores could always post some of the best customer/customer service reps on YouTube and keep the advertising revenue.
