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 see any new items they might have. You would think that they would recognize us,... More

Stopped in the store to make several purchases. After the owner made several rude comments about customers picking things up to look at, I politely placed the items down that I was going to purchase and informed my family that this store didn't deserve the business- we went to another store down a ways and gave them the business! We... More

Starbird in Camden carries many lovely items to decorate your home or give as a gift. However, you must beware that the owner can be very cranky. He may snap and say things he really does not mean. Take a look around and do not touch anything, have the staff show you to products and do not take any pictures.

Owners are snooty and off-putting. Yes, I am from the Midwest. If you do not like tourists, close shop and do something else, preferably not interacting with public.

We stopped there just to see if they were a rude as mentioned in other reviews. Quite the opposite they were very polite and helpful. It was a very nice little shop.

It's hard to resist the beautiful things in the Starbird. I admit to having purchased a few small items from this shop In recent years. If you can get past the snobby shop owners, you might be able to find a lovely treasure. At first I it was me, but after reading other reviews, I was right on the mark.... More

One of my favorite shops in Camden with truly lovely home goods and decorations. Great selection of lamps, rugs, pillows, home decorations - many with a nautical flair. Made a wonderful purchase - and couldn't have been happier with design advise, friendly service, quality and price. Do not miss the clever personal items also around the store. Perfect stop for...

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 store and being completely ignored....... EXCEPT while trying on a bracelet (the Mrs. hovered over...
