That’ll buy a lot of shepherd’s pie


The First Baptist Church in Brattleboro, Vermont made the newswire rounds late last year for putting its treasured Tiffany window up for sale to the highest bidder. Short of funds, the church opted to let go of its  Louis Comfort Tiffany signed stained-glass image of St. John the Divine in order to help keep its homeless shelter open.  In June this year, colored panes replaced the window which sold for $85,000 to a collector who is starting a stained glass museum in Illinois.  The closest offer to that was from a group, including Michael Eisner, who offered $47,500 to keep the window in the church.
