Here's a sampling of the handmade merchandise, some made with recycled materials such as silk ties and tea bags: jewelry, men's and women's clothing, home decor, toys and baby items.

Artisans come from Myanmar/Burma and Rwanda, and other countries.

"Many of our artists had to flee their homelands due to war, famine and genocide and leave everything behind to make a new life for themselves and their families," de la Reguera said.

She said the store at 1706 Fleet Street is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
