Having been in business in North Tonawanda for more than 50 years, Kissel’s decorated and classic taste is a reflection of the items sold at Kissel Country Tin.
“I have always had a love for decorating,” said Kissel. “My passion is decorating. I like to help the customers if they have decorating problems, too.”
Kissel opened her current shop, at 7296 Schultz Road, North Tonawanda, in 2000.
The location is well known to the public as the former Wheatfield Trading Post.
Upon arrival, customers are greeted with the warm feeling of garland draped upon the porch railings and an inviting country feeling as they open the front door.
“Our service is very personal. When our customers come in they are treated well. It’s a cozy and comfortable atmosphere,” said Kissel.
