If you were bar-crawling through the Castro for Pride weekend, you may have spotted Unionmade's new digs at 4035 18th Street. While the shotgun layout is certainly smaller than the store's original location at the corner of Sanchez and 18th, it's also temporary: the original storefront is getting a seismic retrofit upgrade.

Unionmade will return to its home on Sanchez when the work is complete, but it's not planning to relinquish its new Castro real estate gem. Staffers say that The Mill Mercantile, Unionmade's sister store on 24th Street in Noe Valley, will be moving in when the work is done.
