These bright blue boots from local designer, Arianna Bohling, are most definitely made for walkin'. "They're the most comfortable shoes I've ever put on my feet!," says Silva. "They're ethically produced in Peru, and the quality is just beautiful." $352 for women's; $425 for mens.

We caught up with the Joinery gals on a rainy day last week to peruse their favorite picks for fall. "This sweater by Moncieur Lacenaireis just classic and well-made," Silva explains. "Plus, it fits great, and I love that it's kind of French in the best possible way--almost like a French take on a classic American style." $280 .

These cool pieces of "Nemadgi" pottery were originally made to look like old Indian pieces. "It was kind of deliberately misleading," Silva explains. "They were actually made by potters in the Arrowhead region of Minnesota. In 2002, they stopped making them, so all of the pieces we have are vintage and one-of-a-kind." $40 each .

German label Boessert/Schorn is among Silva's favorites. "They use colors and mix patterns in a really amazing way," she says. "At a time when a lot of brands started doing the same ethnic prints, they were doing something very different. I also love the keyhole detail at the neck on this tunic." $487 .

Gorgeous (and surprisingly affordable) hand-woven Brazillian rugs and textiles are a special highlight. "These pieces come from a large artisan community that hasn't started exporting yet," says Silva. "There's been this resurgence of interest in traditional Brazilian weaving, and fortunately they've had some help from the government to keep everything going." Each design--which is totally hand-washable--is also particular to the region its come from. $160 each .
