Think you can't afford to own art? The gift shop at the tiny Craft and Folk Art Museum has an amazing and affordable selection of pieces from around the world. Everything is handcrafted, one of a kind, and free trade. Colorful, recycled tin animals from Zimbabwe priced at $45 mix with horn and wood trinket boxes from India for $6. The stock changes constantly and often represents the museum's exhibitions. Currently featured are Mithila paintings from India for $350 and Matjames' original matchbox assemblages for $25. It pains me to share this one. You owe me. 5814 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. (323) 937-4230,
