There is no denying the health benefits from having animals! Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too welcome animals in the stores if you carry them or place them in one of the shopping carts! Plus, our dealers have a long-standing love affair with animals! Vintage prints, stuffed toys, paintings, cement statuary, porcelain replicas and more — we love all the critters! The stores are filled with sweet animal faces that are sure to bring back fond memories or have a new memory created as you decorate or give gift it.
My generation grew up with teddy bears that were carried and dragged all about the house and snuggled as the day drew to a close.
It’s safe to say that some of us have passed down our treasured bear to the next generation!
At the least our trusted companion is nestled somewhere in storage waiting patiently for daylight!
How lucky could we be if our beloved friend was also on the kitchen counter filled with cookies and treats!
Pet portraits are the rage and the stores are filled with all breeds. Here is a loyal dog, rendering in pencil and pastel, behind glass.
Almost every breed of dog is represented. Who can resist the soulful eyes and character of our canine family members?
So much knowledge and so many life experiences shared together.
It’s wonderful when your favorite breed is found, regardless of the medium.
Even repurposed materials, scaled close to life-size, are found throughout all three stores.
Resident artist Jay Hill captures the essence of the dog with his favorite toy on recycled wood!
Four-legged family members get equal billing with the children and relatives in wonderful frames of all shapes and sizes.
Cats wander and roam within the walls of Stars! Vivid colors and expressions of ambivalence shed light on their unique personalities.
Kittens team up in vintage prints surrounded by spring flowers.
Food never tasted so good when salt and pepper feature your favorite feline!
Even the most colorful cat can’t resist the intrigue and flight of the bird.
Who knew cats chirped as they watched these airborne creatures from the window?

Pot bellied pigs of certain breeds have also become loving house pets. Uniquely intelligent and sure to delight and amuse with their loving snorts and cries.
