We begin the arc proper with Elly getting all gobsmacked because the other librarians think that holding a jumble sale in front of the Pattermanse will class the joint up for once.

(Strip Number: 4427 Original Publication Date: 15 May 1984)

Panel 1: We fast-forward to see where Elly went. It would seem that there's a staff meeting at the library because Susan is asking them to vote on a motion to have their annual fund raiser be a yard sale. The motion is carried with all hands voting yes.

Panel 2: One of the staffers says that it is far too demeaning to sell second hand junk in front of the library.

Panel 3: Her solution is to sell junk in front of Elly's house instead; Elly is astonished that everyone agrees because she doesn't understand a simple fact.

Summary: The simple fact that Elly doesn't realize is that everyone else in town expects to see junk in front of the Pattermanse because everyone aside from Connie and Annie calls Elly white trash. Also, we can probably expect a Lynnsight in which Lynn says that she had no choice but to tell the story of her moving away sale this gratuitously stupid way.
