Posted by The Bay Area Crew, February 24, 2019 07:36pm | Post a Comment

Welcome to our re-booted blog series on the employees of Amoeba San Francisco. You know them, youSean Murphy love them, sometimes you see them buying coffee at Whole Foods. Now you can get to know all about them and their departments!

We are kicking off this reinvented column with the one and only Sean Murphy, who you may recognize from behind the registers. What you may not know is that he's also our Apparel and Accessories Buyer. Yes, he's the rock and pop-culture maven behind our ever-growing t-shirt collection. Lean in and learn more.


Amoeblog: How long have you been with Amoeba SF?

Sean: This April will be 12 years. It's the longest I've ever been at a job, by far.

Amoeblog: What sort of shirts do you order for Amoeba SF?

Sean: In addition to ordering and helping choose designs for all the Amoeba apparel, I order all of our music, movie, and pop-culture tees.

Amoeblog: How do you decide what to order?

Sean: I've always had a good eye for cool designs, and before Amoeba I was in the vintage clothing world where I specialized in picking music and pop-culture tees for almost 12 years. I still wear graphic tees pretty much every day. Ha ha.

Amoeblog: What do you like most about being "the t-shirt guy"?

Sean: I'm just going to unashamedly brag and say the thing I like best about it is that I've more than doubled sales since I took over the department, and now our promotions team is designing window displays to showcase our awesome selection. Tees are bringing new people into the store and I'm really proud to be a part of that.

Who else hasn’t thought of anything to get their significant other for Valentine’s Day?

V-Day is a tough one. You don’t want to go too extravagant ’cause hey, there’s still birthdays and other holidays to think of. But a lil’ something is nice too! Well, let us help you figure out how to find that perfect cool gift for Valentine’s Day that says “I didn’t go to Rite Aid at the last minute to get you chocolates, I actually put some thought into this.” Here are 10 ideas for a nice Valentine’s Day gift.

Turntables

Through this Sunday, we’re having a sale for 20% off all turntables at all three stores. Plus, when you buy a turntable this weekend, you’ll get a $10 gift certificate for used vinyl to start that collection. Either our Red Essential II turntable or red and white Crosley Executive turntable (as pictured above) make for a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift that will last. They’re some of the nicest and certainly most aesthetically pleasing turntables we carry — they’re statement pieces as well as a great way to listen to music.
