Ed Roberts Jr. opened Roberts’ Auction in May 2009 in Arkville. If the Roberts’ Auction name sounds familiar, that’s because Ed’s parents, Ed Sr. and Sandy, operated a business by the same name in Fleischmanns for more than 40 years. That enterprise was well known for providing an outlet for selling and buying goods, plus its unique qualities as a social gathering place.
Ed Jr. had helped out at the auction for many years — with Ed getting his first taste of the business at age eight. When the physical toll of long years on contracting forced Ed to make a career change, it wasn’t long before a plan came together for a “new Roberts’ Auction.” Many old customers have returned and new patrons have been turning out for auctions each week.
Ed aims to bring the best of the old Roberts’ Auction traditions to their new space, while putting their own unique stamp on the business. They welcome folks to stop in and enjoy the action at a place “Where you can get something for nodding.”
