Can someone recommend a good Wordpress Theme that will work as an Auction Site? I need it easy to use from an end-user perspective and also the admin portion of it should be simple too.

Thanks.

There obviously is no "auction" functionality built into wordpress by default. And no theme is going to give you that functionality either.  You are going to need some kind of plugin to achieve that capability.  A quick googling revealed this plugin: WP-Auctions

I've never used it.  But it looks like it may be what you are looking for.  

As far as a good theme goes... I would look into studiopress.  They have a wordpress framework called the genesis framework which makes creating templates much easier. They also have a bunch of well made themes that are very customizable available for pretty cheap.   Check them out:  StudioPress

Good Luck!

Actually you can find themes for Wordpress that are built with in-theme Auction Functionality. The way they do this is to include the functionality for the auctions into the functions.php of the theme. This reduces the need for plug-ins and will help if you decided to go with a plug-in and the author didn't keep it up to the latest version of Wordpress. Since the function is built into the theme, it will remain functional where the plug-in may not.

Here are a few links to some Custom Wordpress Auction Themes:
