Quaint means some thing that is charmingly old, which is very much in an old fashioned way. It is like something that is cleverly mad or even artful or strange. It comes from the Middle English word clever, cunning, peculiar and also from the Old French word queinte, cointe. An example would be 'It's a very quaint village with old-fashioned store fronts'. It is also considered as being something that is bizarre or out of the ordinary in a fascinating, enjoyable, or entertaining way.
