 Our New Auction Center!


Ron and Eileen Rhoads moving auction firm to new venue in Chester County, Pa.

SPRING CITY, Pa. - Ron and Eileen Rhoads are moving their base of operations in Chester County, Pa., to Spring City, one mile from their former location at the Kimberton Fairgrounds. Rhoads and Rhoads Auction Center will now be headquartered in the former Bonnie Brae Auction Center, site of numerous past auctions. The facility is currently undergoing renovation, and an early October 2006 date is planned for Rhoads' first event in the new venue.

Ron Rhoads is known for conducting simultaneous auctions, and the spacious auction center will allow the company to revive the practice, which was popular with auction patrons in the past. To enable Ron and Eileen Rhoads to increase the volume of sales on their agenda, new staff members are being added. Shane Petersheim has been appointed auction center manager, and Robert Homan will serve as auctioneer and head the Toys division. The following specialists will oversee other newly added divisions: Delores Hartenstien, Linens & Clothing; Mike Novak, Sports; and Allen A. Schiavoni, Books & Paper.

Ron Rhoads will continue to personally handle all paintings, fine antiques and real estate auctioned by his firm. Ron's wife and business partner, Eileen Rhoads, will pursue her already well-established specialty, coordinating all future Dollhouse Miniatures and Fine Doll sales. Larry Lefever, who made his name in automotive auctions, will assist the couple in all phases of the transition.

Eileen noted that while renovations will change the physical appearance of the auction center, "the warmth and charm that existed there for many years will still be in the mix." Oct. 22 has been confirmed as the date of a major Dollhouse Miniatures auction, featuring the Rose Barell American Artist collection and several other collections and estates. The date of the facility's grand reopening, as well as sale dates for the remainder of the year, will soon be announced. Rhoads and Rhoads Auction Center is located at 20 Bonnie Brae Rd., in Spring City, Pa. For additional information, call Eileen Rhoads at 610-385-4818.
