Hanging Out In Quincy, FL

Doright Manor, where I reside with my husband, Studly Doright, is in a rural housing development about eight miles west of Tallahassee, Florida. We have a Havana, FL, address, but we’re geographically closer to the town of Quincy.

Typically when I shop I head to Tallahassee, with Havana being my second choice, but on Wednesday I needed something small (eye liner) and decided to see if I could find it in Quincy at the CVS. Sure enough they had what I wanted and much too soon I was driving home.

Quincy is the county seat, so I drove around the courthouse square to see if there was anything of interest. I noticed a business I hadn’t seen on any of my previous visits. Could it be an antique/junk shop? It was! Be still my heart!

My photos aren’t great, but the shop is. It’s called The Junktion and it’s been open for a couple of months. The delightful owner, (whose name I’ve forgotten thanks to my advanced age) is still sorting through things and she has some treasures.

I couldn’t quite keep myself out of the photo above. It is always all about me anyway.

And the owner is in this one above. She is adorable and has big plans for her shop. The photos, as I said, aren’t great, but the shop is.

Just next door to The Junktion is the Gadsden Arts Center. I wasn’t in any hurry to go home, so I popped in there for bit.

I’d never taken the time to properly stroll through the galleries of the arts center, having in the past merely popped in for directions or to ask a question, but now after spending some time there I realize that the Gadsden Arts Center is a real gem. In addition to the galleries, the center is adding a gift shop, and they offer classes and studio time. I’m not much of an artist, but it would be fun to take a class.

I definitely need to spend more time in Quincy.

Peace, people.

  1. Thank you so much for such eloquent words written about your experience with The Junktion and also wanted to say Thank you on behalf of the Art Center equally so. I was absolutey touched that you took time to write about your fun adventure/excusrsion to Downtown Quincy – “the square”. The Junktion has since moved to 16 N Adams St . (Directly across the courthouse square , next to Damfino’s Restaurant-which you must try if you like a farm to table atmosphere , it’s really delicious and u won’t be sorry . The owner , Ms Lucy , is warm and inviting as is all of the staff there . I hope you will come visit our new location and have yourself new explorations more often – you just never know what The Junktion may have and I look forward to seeing you again 🙂 Thanks for being a true Junktion Junky ! Kindest Regards, Tammy Albritton
