back again this year, Auctioneer Todd Kimmell!

Todd Kimmell, AKA That Toddly Man, will join us again this year as our auctioneer. His new studio is in a 100 year old bowling alley in Ardmore that no one knew was there. Not kidding.

If you visit, he suggests a bottle of decent port or a six pack of hard cider as the password. That said, visitors really are welcome, and the ancient two lane bowling alley is in fine working order.

When we asked our perennial gentleman of the arts why he willingly puts himself through an evening of torture on our behalf, he simply smiled and sang “The ham bone ‘s connected to the… jaw bone!”
