· The big Britex Fabrics 30% Off Sale is on Monday, October 13th. Pop by 146 Geary Street from 10am to 7pm next week for this one-day-only store-wide sale. The discount is limited to stock on the floor. Imported/vintage lace, Liberty and specialty items are excluded, but previously-reduced remnants and notions are included. If you're going to DIY for Halloween, it's a good time to shop.
· Lombardi Sports's days are numbered. As we discussed last week, the Russian Hill sporting goods store will be closing its doors after 66 years in business. Everything is 20-50% off, so stock up on all the things you might need before the good stuff is gone.
