The First Baptist Church of Brattleboro has been the proud owner of an original 9-foot tall, Tiffany stained glass window in the choir loft, said the Rutland Herald. Unfortunately, the church has had to make the decision to sell the window in order to keep the church and a wintertime homeless shelter going. It wasn’t an easy decision. But rising costs and falling revenue was a reality. The almost 100-year-old window is a multicolored image of St. John the Divine and, according to church member Karen Davis, “When you see the sunlight coming through it on a Sunday morning, it’s just spectacular.” The window is valued between $60,000 and $80,000; the church hopes to realize at least $50,00 from the sale. But removal can be tricky and finding buyers can be hard. There currently are two bids on the window, but there is no closing date for the bids. So if you’re stumped for a gift for that special someone who has everything – this could be the answer to your dilemma.
