Friday, a new store is opening in downtown Seymour, and it’s a little bit quirky.

But in a good way.

When friends Tracy Hackman and Lyn Najar started talking about the idea of owning a business, they knew it had to be eclectic, unique and fun, reflecting their own personalities.

That’s how Quirky Living was born.

Located at 113 W. Second St. in the former A Hearing Aid office, the store is hard to classify in one genre.

Quirky Living is a gift shop for those last-minute birthday parties, baby showers or bridal showers. The store sells cards, offers gift wrapping and Hackman and Najar can help create a gift basket for any occasion.

It’s a clothing boutique featuring items for big and small and specializing in ages “between teens and grandmas,” Hackman said.
