Anthropologie's Buyer, Keith Johnson

As many people have found out through his television show, Man Shops Globe, Keith Johnson is the buyer for Anthropologie.  In this video you get a little insight into his thought process when purchasing items for the various Anthropologie stores across the country.  His idea of buying things that he would buy for his own home is something that we've been doing since we started Syd & Harper.  Everything that we sell we would just assume keep for ourselves if nobody else finds a use for it.  We believe that following this buying principle creates a unique collection that, at the same time, works well together as a whole.  It's a creative process and an art form that is getting more recognition everyday and we love being part of it :)  Enjoy the video!
