OUR HISTORY Sam Schnaidt (Founder/President) grew up in a home of long time antique and automobile collectors. Sam started collecting at the age of 12, buying his first antique car at auction, a 1926 coupe, for $20.00. He collected antique toys as a teenager, many of which are on display at the auction house today. Sam and his wife, Heidi, have bought, sold, and collected antiques for almost 50 years. Sam graduated from Ohio University and Reppert School of Auctioneering in 1963. Sam and Heidi were joined at Apple Tree by their son, David, in 1993. David filled Apple Tree with his great enthusiasm and expertise until he lost a brave battle with cancer in 2013. Sam and Heidi's daughter, Debbie Schnaidt (Vice President) grew up going on antique buying trips that were thinly disguised as family vacations. She loves the warmth, patina, and history of antiques. She grew up with a grandmother that collected antique dolls, and loves that she still gets to, "play with dolls" at work. Debbie attended auction school in 1994, and has now assumed management and auctioneering duties at Apple Tree. Debbie has also implemented a new auction program. Debbie looks forward to growing the business for the next generations. OUR TEAM Sam and Debbie are both very involved in the daily operations of the business. Additionally, Apple Tree has developed a very professional group of dedicated associates. We are proud of our team, and the expertise that our associates provide throughout the auction process. Spencer Johnson (Debbie's oldest son) joined our team in October 2017. He has received certification from GIA as an Applied Jewelry Professional. He continues to take classes through GIA to further his knowledge on jewelry. Spencer became a licensed auctioneer in 2019. Meredith Johnson is in charge of our social media advertising. She also helps with photographing and cataloging jewelry and other items. Meredith is currently an apprentice auctioneer. Nicholas Cochran serves as our technical support here at Apple Tree. He is a licensed auctioneer and assist with auction duties. He keeps our programs running smoothly, resolves our technical issues, and ensures that we are informed and up-to-date on all technological advances. Kim Felts is the friendly face greeting people in the front office. She has over five years of office experience and manages the consignor records for maximum efficiency. She also claims she is perfect. Mark Harris travels extensively, ensuring that we receive some of the finest doll collections in the country. Lillie Leonard is our very competent office manager. Lillie also acts as our title clerk for all vehicle sales. Lillie is also responsible for the extensive paperwork required for all of our firearm transfers. Complete ATF compliance is absolutely essential and important to us at Apple Tree. Korie McFarland is a valued part of our office staff, assisting in the shipping department as well as payment processing. Lue Rhinehart leads our very busy household auction crew. Lue, assisted by our hard working crew, is responsible for handling pick-ups for Apple Tree. Joanne Czinke, Susie Stuart, and Louise Yeakley head up our cataloging and research team. While very knowledgeable, they are also an exceptional research staff. They handle many aspects of both our antique and specialty auctions. Sandy Laszlo and Greg Graham are kept busy sorting and cataloging the wide variety of dolls we receive for these auctions. Our doll auctions have continued to be more and more successful over the past nine years.

Great and Fun AuctionsI love the McMasters Harris Doll Auctions that are run by Apple Tree Auction Center. The opening bids are always very low, the pace is quick and they accept personal checks. I try to participate in these auctions whenever they come up.
