A collective of local craftspeople, you will find Starlings packed to the ceiling with original makes and art. It is a great place to go when looking for a gift for the person who has everything.

As indicated by the name, it is an arts and craft shop selling items made by local people. I find it useful for birthday cards and the like, but there is a wide range of arty items on offer. Staff are very helpful.
