What $100 Buys in Uganda

$32 Necklace Sanaa Gateja, one of Uganda's best-known artists, makes beads by rolling up tiny strips of magazines. Design Agenda, 14 Parliament Ave., 011-256/772-718-158. (Photo: Michael Kraus)
$4 Salad servers Uganda's forests are a rich source of rosewood, teak, and mahogany. Markets, in turn, are a source of items like rosewood salad servers. NACAU, Shop 23. (Photo: Michael Kraus)
$9 Bag Everyday objects are creatively recycled. Worn tires become flip-flops; tin cans transform into lamps; colorful bottle caps get fashioned into a pop art handbag. Portal Ave. Market, Shop 2. (Photo: Michael Kraus)
$9 Bangles Ankole-Watusi cattle are prized for their long, thick horns, which are carved into buttons and bracelets. NACAU, Shop 8. (Photo: Michael Kraus)
$5 Coffee It's the country's biggest export. And despite the fact that most Ugandans prefer to drink tea, Western-style coffeehouses such as 1,000 Cups are popular hangouts. 18 Buganda Rd., 011-256/772-505-619. (Photo: Michael Kraus)
$29 Baking dish Potters from the women's co-op Mukisa Mpewo create vessels inspired by big game. National Arts and Crafts Association of Uganda (NACAU), Shop 19, 4/6 Dewinton Rd. (Photo: Michael Kraus)
