As the sale continues, we see Elly baffled by two more generally known phenomena that she's never heard of or anticipated. First off, she's thrown for a loop by the existence of garage sale enthusiasts and second, she's baffled when one rates her sale as inferior owing to the lack of refreshments.

(Strip Number 615, Original Publication Date, 22 May 1984)

Panel 1: Now that the sale has started, we see Elly think that she's upselling a customer by giving her more than her two dollars' worth.

Panel 2: As a woman in her fifties wearing a babushka looks something over, Elly asks Monique where all of these people she doesn't recognize have come from.

Panel 3: The lady in the headscarf speaks in a stagey Eastern European accent when she says that she goes to eff'ry yard sale in city. She then giffs Elly the 6 outa 10 for dis von.

Panel 4: Her reason: No refreshments.

Summary: One thing that you'll notice that isn't Lynn's bias towards Ethnic types showing through is that we're at the EASTGATE Library yard sale. This means that we can expect a Lynnsight about how it took a while for her to decide on the town's name.
