Olga Fisch Folklore specializes in Ecuadorian folk art and craft, ranging from expertly weaved Andean shigras to hand-carved pre-Columbian inspired wooden tiles. This local gem is committed to helping artisans sell their work at a fair price so as to sustain Quito's thriving folk art culture. The staff can give you the history of the items on sale, be it the artist who made them or the process used. Don't miss the museum upstairs, where an impressive collection of pre-Columbian and postcolonial art is lovingly maintained and on display for free.

Cool place, pretty handmade crafts but way overpriced. I’d rather buy everything at local markets making sure money goes directly to the artisans.
