Last year, when Todd Barket opened Unionmade in a former liquor store on a tree-lined street in San Francisco, he wanted to present a collection of well made goods with a real sense of heritage, craftsmanship and value. One of the things we noticed the first time we skimmed the racks was the unique balance of affordable items mixed in with investment pieces. "That was something I learned from Mickey Drexler when I worked for him at Gap," says Barket, who put in 18 years at the retailer before striking out on his own. Here, he offers up the shop's ten best unique gifts to give (and get).
