David Youngson & Associates

DYA was founded in 1979 by David Youngson. It was quite accidental, really – just a ‘70’s hippie selling seaweed fertilizer and hand-crafted stained glass, later expanding to potpourri, picture frames and more. Regardless of what he was selling, David’s passion was anticipating the needs of Canadian independent retailers and guiding them to success, thus developing long-lasting relationships built on trust. Now, 40 years later, we are a team of two owners and a family of expert sales professionals and support staff who share that passion. We represent manufacturers of design-led high-quality gifts, home décor and fashion accessories. We maintain a roster of the best lines in the industry, curating retail programs that deliver great sell-through.
