Organising the Monster Garage Sale for 11 years now, Janine Menzies has developed a high tolerance for the unusual.
Every year, the fundraiser attracts an eclectic array of items for sale, but nothing will ever quite beat the unusual - and somewhat restless - item that turned up in last year's donations.
"Last year, we had a dog for sale. It was a puppy that needed to go to a new home, and we found it one," she said.
A dog being far from the average sale item at any garage sale, Mrs Menzies hopes not to make pet purchases a regular feature of the annual fundraiser.
Generally, she welcomes donations with fewer legs and less fur.
"We had this run-down old mantelpiece one year, I thought it'd never sell. But people were so excited about it," Mrs Menzies said.
"One year, a lady found a very old potato masher. She said she'd been looking for one everywhere.
"Someone gave us their aunt's engagement and eternity rings one year. We had them valued and got a good price from that."
Right now, the hall and auditorium are near empty at Wagga Baptist Church, but by Saturday the spaces will be standing room only.
It is quite the transformation for the fundraiser that has come from a humble beginning.
"We've hit our plateau now but when we started we were excited just to fill out the hall," Mrs Menzies said.
"We raised about $9000 that year, and that's when I knew were were on to something."
Since 2009, the donations have grown to fill the hall and the auditorium, with donations reaching up to $35,000 every year for the past five.
An initiative of the city's combined churches, Saturday's event raises funds for community radio station Life FM, and the Scripture in schools program.
"The level of donations this year might be down after the bushfires, but we're still looking forward to it. It's always a great social event," Mrs Menzies said.
Donations can be made at the Tarcutta Street entrance to the church on Wednesday to Friday, 8am to 3pm.
