After more than 50 years at 1170 Sutter, Haji Najmabadi is closing Haji's Hardware and House of Persian Imports. The sale of inventory will probably last until June. Also, anyone can enter a drawing to a flat-screen television, coffee maker, and other items.

Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, a bakery selling high-end cookies, donuts, croissants, scones and cruffins, actually opened last year at 1042 Larkin between Sutter and Post (high-end because a dozen donuts costs over $40). I had passed by the store many times before, but always after 2:30 in the afternoon, when it's closed. The above photo, taken in the morning, is the first time I've been by there when it's open.
