The owners are both extremely unfriendly, unless you ask about their cats; then they will carry on a conversation with you. Don't, however, expect them to remember you the next time you enter their store. We are locals and occasionally stop by their shop to...More

A great store filled with lovely things. Both kinds of items those for oneself and those for weddings and for house presents. Summery and tasteful it's always worth the stop. Owner operated and it shows.

The owners of Starbird are not to be believed. It's fascinating that these two miserable people would find each other and then decide to open a retail business. Their rudeness is so completely over the top that I find it funny. After 'shopping' in their...More
