Featuring a rotating array of locally produced handicrafts, Novodel is the place to go for smart and unusual souvenirs. The usually funny, often contro-versial, and invariably functional objects at this small gallery include such items as a prototype of an ecofriendly deck chair made from cardboard, comfy Uzbek Aladdin-style slippers with conspicuously pointy toes, and hand-painted plates portraying oligarchs behind bars. Painted china is fast becoming the gallery’s specialty—be sure to look for the salt-and-pepper sets in the shape of Putin’s head (the salt pours from holes in his eyes); they should become quite a collector’s item after the 2008 election, assuming there is one. At 9 Bolshoy Palashevsky Pereulok; 7-495/626-4538.
