Lisa Stewart, a returning customer from Baldwinsville, said she decided to come back because she had bought things at the store before and had liked the jewelry she saw in the e-mail sent out over the e-mail list.
"I'm glad there's a place like this in Baldwinsville," she said. "You don't have to go to Skaneateles or the Armory to find things like this."
Stewart has told other people about Sissy's, including her daughter from Syracuse who was at the store with her.
"I love it here," Stewart said. "It's cozy and unique. Stephanie is so nice and helpful. She takes time with you."
Stewart said she first decided to go to Sissy's because she had driven by the sign in front of the store and was intrigued by the store.
Like Stewart, Diane Burt and Judy Welch who were visiting Baldwinsville from Cuba, N.Y., said they decided to go in the store because of the sign out front and the items they saw through the window.
"It's very unique and different," Welch said. "We got a friendly greeting when we walked in, which was nice. I plan to tell people to stop by. It's worth the drive."
Burt added, "There's a little something for everyone. It's enjoyable, relaxing and aspiring."
So far, Boivin has not faced any challenges with the store, not even the economy.
"Obviously, the economy hit everyone, but I think a place like this is a feel good store, an outlet of fun," she said. "We have a variety of gifts so everyone can come in and get something for their price point."
This is the first store Boivin has owned and it's a step away from sign language, her major in college. "This is nothing that my degree was geared toward, but I've always had a flare for this," she said. "I think I'm doing well because I do love it and I've enjoyed meeting so many people."
