Craig Broadfield is about to break his own record, by attending three separate antique fairs in as many weeks.
On his way to Sydney before heading back to his homeland near Launceston, Wagga's weekend antique fair at the showgrounds provided a convenient layover on the 1500km roadtrip.
It took himself and one other more than eight hours to set out their wares at Kyeamba-Smith Hall on Friday. But that was "unusually fast".
"It takes us up to 12 hours to get everything out and displayed just right," Mr Broadfield said.
"But then it only takes about four hours to pack down."
For over 30 years, Mr Broadfield has travelled city to city selling antiques. Last year, he attended 12 different fairs, while the previous year he was at 16.
Until now, the most he has ever done consecutively has been two in a row. Arriving in the city on Thursday night represented the first time in two decades he has set foot on Riverina soil.
Last time, he recalls he took the "roughest flight of my life", with a suitcase of goblets.
Transporting that amount of delicate cargo has enormous challenges, but with a practiced hand Mr Broadfield confirms "it is rare that anything gets broken".
A fascination with antiques began in Mr Broadfield when he was only about eight years old.
Collecting "almost anything, rocks, shells, insects, minerals", it was something he shared with his grandmother.
"She was the last in her bloodline so she became the custodian of a lot of wonderful old things," he said.
"Everything had a story, and that's what's always fascinated me, more than the value in money."
Now, three decades later there are a few 'holy grail pieces' he continues to hunt.
"Ravencroft pieces, I've only ever seen them in museums, but they're always special to see," he said.
"Or a canary yellow twisted stem glass. They go for about $25,000 each, I've seen them around but I've never been able to buy one.
"You always have your eye out, maybe you'll find something good."
This year's Wagga Antiques Fair will donate a portion of proceeds to the Amie St Clair Melanoma Trust.
