I am looking for a dollar figure for the effect the Darwin Martin house restoration has had on the local economy.

Darwin Martin House

She is still with us, but off doing her own thing now, so I don't run into as often. I thought that someone who actually knew Ted had posted on this forum, shortly after he passed on. Thank you for the suggestion.

Does anyone know of a study or report which has looked at the effect of the restoration of the Darwin Martin house on the local Buffalo economy?

Lamp Selling

That seems odd. I had questioned them about the provenance of items up for auction and either they didn't understand my question or they didn't want to reveal the source!

Selling a lamp
