A tipster reports that today will be the last day of operation for N. Mississippi coffeehouse/roasterie/bakery Blue Gardenia, which debuted in April 2005, a year after bake-happy sisters Linn and Christie Goldsby developed a Farmers Market-following for their baked goods. According to our source: "Kind of took the staff by surprise. There was a Craigslist ad announcing the sale but I don't think there was a buyer."
