Murphy’s Vintage was founded in 2016 as Charming Restorations and recently rebranded in 2019. We are regular vendors Spring and Fall at Antique Week in Warrenton, Texas. In February of 2020 we purchased a 1939 building in our hometown to renovate as a year-round storefront! The store will offer our customers the same unique collection they are used to finding each show, plus a wider variety of furniture pieces and soon the availability of DIY classes.
Angela Murphy grew up in the Houston, Texas area and currently resides in Smithville, Texas. Antiques and vintage restoration runs in her blood, as her dad restored vintage cars, gas pumps and other items and she and her mom restored furniture together from an early age. She has been happily married for 16 years and enjoys spoiling her Shetland Sheepdogs, Macie, Maggie and Memphis.
Angela received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Austin and her Masters from the University of Houston. She has a background as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and more recently, a successful Certified Professional Organizer (CPO) in the Houston, Texas area, for the past 13 years. Following her passion and her dreams, Angela and her husband Brad now own a historical 100 year old Craftsman Bungalow which they are enjoying making their own, while working on home improvement projects, crafts and spending time with family and friends. She and Brad look forward to becoming more active in the Smithville community.
Brad grew up in various towns in Texas and Oklahoma. He is a volunteer firefighter in Smithville, Texas and a proud employee of the boss lady. In his spare time, he does IT Consulting and spent many years working for IBM, as well as PricewaterhouseCoopers and Ernst & Young. Prior to this, he was in the US Navy, where he learned electronics theory and troubleshooting.
Brad loves repurposing old items into something new, and from time to time, you may see some of his ideas reflected here.
