The Grand Bazaar in Turkey
The miles and miles of shops and booths in Istanbul, Turkey's Grand Bazaar can be overwhelming to most, but a seasoned shopper like Johnson can navigate his way between junk and souvenirs and spot treasures quickly. "If you do what I do, for as many years as I do, you really learn how to edit out anything that is not interesting," Johnson says. "You can spot out of the corner of your eye the one thing in the back of the booth that looks interesting, and you will zero in it."
Special textiles and fabrics were on Johnson's list during this trip, and he found materials and a local artist to create pillows for the Anthropologie stores.
