DOSH for dusty antiques with be changing hands when Lolly from the Loft is held in Axbridge.
A spoof of popular television programme, Cash in the Attic, the event will see dozens of historical relics being sold in the name of a worthy cause.
An auctioneer will be calling the lots and inventing amusing stories for each piece.
Organiser Paul Passey said: "We used to have supper auctions each year to raise money but this time we thought we would do something different.
You may also want to watch:
"The auctioneer will make up something funny about each lot. I remember one year we sold Nelson's glass eye.
"We hope everyone who comes to the event will bring an item or two, so we'll probably have about 100 lots to sell."

The event is being held by the Friends of Axbridge Church, which wants to raise funds for new engraved doors on St John the Baptist's Church in The Square. The picture on the door will be the town's symbol of a lamb and flag and a dove to represent peace.
Cash from the sales and the entry fee will all be donated to the church.
Tickets, priced £6, are available from Diana Passey on 01934 733373. The event will be held in the town hall in The Square on February 23.
