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.

As We walked into the shop, it was dead silent and the owner turned... More

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...

We go to Camden several times a year and always stop in the Starbird to browse, shop and talk to the owner. We have had great conversations about the books we are reading and world history. The items for sale are always stylish and attractive. Our home and summer home are accented with many delightful pieces we picked up there... More

I was visiting Camden for a week and stopped in this store early in the visit. At first it seemed like a nice home dec store. I returned the next day to look at a knitted throw that caught my eye. (I should've read the other reviews first!) While I was examining the throw I heard the husband-owner start complaining... More
