Ryan Showroom 

About Us

Ryan Associates, founded by Joe Ryan, has represented gift, home decor and tabletop vendors with a permanent showroom based in the Dallas Market Center since 1978.  Rich Ryan joined his father in the business in 1982.  We owe our longevity to the tremendous support we receive from our customers and vendors.  Our goal, including our professional sales rep force, is simply to offer the level of service that earns this support, based on the following:

"Treat people the way we would like to be treated."

This philosophy includes:

- Respecting everyone
- Having a live person available to answer the phone
- Responding to customers' needs as quickly as possible
- Representing our vendors in a responsible manner

We are now a third generation company with Joe Ryan, Jr. joining us as our showroom manager.

Why the Seagull

In the early 1970's, Joe Sr. and his wife, Phyllis Ryan, owned a Hallmark store on Brigantine Island, New Jersey.  It was their logo.  For sentimental reasons it will always be with us.
