Vintage 30

Is it OK to use a PA speaker with my Marshall 3203 head while I save for an Avatar 2x12?

The ohms match (8) and the PA speaker can handle all the power the head can dish out. I tried it, and it doesn't sound all that bad! I'm sure some Vintage 30's will sound better, but this is OK in the meantime, right?

Yes, of course. That's what the standards are for, so that you can plug in any speaker with the right impedance and wattage and use them. Once you get used to the PAs, go to a store and audition the Vintage 30's and see if they are worth the money.
