We just got word that the Toy Maven in Preston Royal Village won the 2012 Retailer Excellence Award from the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA). Preston Hollow resident Candace Williams, the Toy Maven’s owner, accepted the honor at ASTRA’s Marketplace & Academy convention, which was held in Baltimore in June.
“It is so cool to be recognized on a national level for doing the work that I love so much,” Williams said. “The friends I have made across the U.S.A. in ASTRA continue to inspire me to bring innovative ideas and the best products to Dallas. I am truly honored!”
ASTRA members across the nation nominated and voted for the Toy Maven in the ASTRA Member Awards. Williams received the award during a special awards breakfast ceremony that acknowledged additional leaders in the industry.
