Man Shops Globe

A new show premieres tonight on the Sundance Channel , Man Shops Globe, which follows an accesories and home accents buyer for Anthropologie. From the Sundance website:

In each half-hour program, Keith Johnson travels to a new country in search of fantastic and unusual decorative objects, furniture, and textiles. He also seeks out the world's best artists and crafts people. MAN SHOPS GLOBE follows Johnson, who travels six months of the year, to ends-of-the-earth excursions, from flea markets in Paris to remote villages in India and obscure art studios in Turkey.

We all love Anthropologie and this show sounds really fun (like, my dream job??). But it also kind of sounds like a long ad for Anthro and makes me feel bad about the mass production of cultural arts and crafts for all us bohemiam yuppies.

More opinions and reviews can be found here.

I will be watching though.
