Abicus opened it’s doors back in 2000, on what was then a very sleepy Darby St Cooks Hill Newcastle. With a crate of records, a rail of clothing and the vision to offer unique classics and unique titles that were not easily available locally, this inseparable mix of music and fashion translated from the very first day. Now, 20 years on, with a sister store Scout, a team of 10 staff and an immense amount of love and respect for the magical place that is Newcastle, we feel extremely lucky to be working with some of Australia’s most inspiring and prolific designers, musicians and artists.
