If you’ve been a fan of Goldenbleu handbags since the San Francisco brand launched in 2004, then take note: this weekend marks the last time you’ll be able to buy the company’s bags, shoes and accessories – ever. After four years in business, the label is saying goodbye for good. The online store is all but empty, but San Francisco dwellers who’d like to pay their last respects in person are in luck. Starting tonight, Goldenbleu will begin unloading the last of its merchandise at up to 90 percent off during its Going Out of Business Sale. Stop by the Mission warehouse before 5 p.m. on Saturday for shoes starting at $10 a pair, $45 boots and bags from $35.
