The Folk Tree in Pasadena is owned by Rochalinne "Rocky" Behr. Her store is packed to the rafters with art from Mexico and Latin America. Rising rent and slower sales are forcing Behr to look for a new location, she has already poured 20 years and thousands of dollars in personal savings. The 78-year-old still runs her buying tours to artisan houses and studios in rural Mexico and says she has no formal plans to turn over the store any time soon.
