Talking Stock: Red Bird Trading

Head to this North Shore showroom for artistic upholstered pieces – and a dress to match.

NEWBURYPORT NATIVE KERRY Vaughan knows how to catch your eye – her two home-goods stores, Red Bird Trading and the nearby Wishbasket, have been in business for more than 25 years. Both reflect Vaughan’s "modern with a vintage, comfortable vibe" leanings, though her style is a moving target. "We shift our look a lot," she says. She’s constantly ushering in upholstered furniture by Lee, case goods by Oly, and bedding by Matteo. But custom designs are her passion: "I love working with clients to find their look, and creating unique pieces to match." 50 Water St., Newburyport, 978-462-5566.
