Ep. 053 - Tom England

Uncut.jpg

Tom England, co-owner of Dancing Bear Toys and Gifts in Frederick, sits down with host Colin McGuire and News-Post reporter Nancy Lavin to share the secrets to his business success and why you won't find any battery-powered toys on the shelves at Dancing Bear.

They also discuss Frosty Friday, the downtown Frederick alternative to Black Friday, and England's career journey from scientist and government contractor to toymaker and seller. Plus, England takes a gander on which of the 2017 nominees made the cut into the National Toy Hall of Fame — the suspense will be worth it, we promise.
