At 3 Twenty 3 Vintage Market, old furniture is given a “new life” every day, owner Renae McFadden said.

The store, which opened on Kuykendahl Road in 2016, sells restored and repurposed furniture, home decor, paint supplies and fashion accessories from local vendors.

Prior to opening 3 Twenty 3 Vintage Market, McFadden—who is also a nurse—said she used to sell antiques at a small booth in Tomball.

Now, McFadden said, hunting for items and old furniture and restoring them serves as a type of stress relief. Refurbishing involves repairing, cleaning and painting, and McFadden said she prefers furniture that is made from real wood.

“Refurbishing or making furniture look different, giving it new life, is very relaxing and therapeutic for me,” she said.

To find her items, McFadden said she scours auctions and estate sales looking for “things outside of [the] box.” Sometimes customers will also sell or donate used items to the store, she said.

“We like anything that’s real wood, that’s unique looking,” she said. “The midcentury modern, [for example], is something that I would probably never put in my house, but a lot of the customers like it.”

In addition to furniture, the store sells clothing, such as used cowboy boots and jewelry made by local vendors, although McFadden said she has not put as much emphasis on clothing purchases as she has with furniture.

McFadden said she plans to host more community events, such as car shows, in the future.

After Hurricane Harvey hit in August 2017, McFadden said she allowed victims to store their furniture in her shop. She also held a benefit for another nurse who was battling cancer.

“We do want to do another benefit this year—hopefully, when fall hits,” she said. “We’re thinking about doing some stuff for the community.”
