From Clock Shop to Eclectic Home Style

Destination with a Cause

woodlands-clocksWoodlands Unique is a life style store in The Woodlands, Texas featuring style forward home accents and furnishings company located in the Woodlands, Texas. The 6600  square foot showroom houses exceptional and ever changing designer selected items and is a place where shoppers can attend numerous trunk shows and other inspiring lifestyle events.

In 2000 Don and Kathy Harkey, two environmental health and safety consultants with three school-aged children, opened Woodlands Clocks & Gifts (WCG) as a way to share their passion for clocks and beautiful collectables from around the world with their friends and neighbors in the Woodlands shfcommunity. The success of the shop combined with its clientele’s frequent requests for more home fashions such as tabletop accessories, lamps and barstools, the couple opened a second store, Southern Home Furnishings (SHF), in 2004.

For the next nine years, and throughout the lean years of the recession in the late 2000’s, WCG and SHF evolved and grew to become the “go-to” place for unique furniture, home décor, gifts and, most importantly, friendly and knowledgeable service and assistance. By hiring and working with talented designers and via WCG’s online presence the companies played a key role in making thousands of homes look, feel and smell beautiful and inviting, and not just homes in Texas but many throughout the U.S.A. as well as internationally.

Prompted by this devastating loss Don sought to ensure that Kathy’s struggle would not be in vain and thus established the Kathy S. Breast Cancer Foundation and transformed their retail ventures into one magnificent place where Kathy would have loved to shop (both physically & online) and spend time exchanging ideas with other creative individuals. Woodlands Unique, with its online boutique operation and the addition of a fashion forward selection of women’s clothing & accessories, is just that sort of place.
