Tim & Tiff have been bringing the good stuff to Newcastle for as long as we can remember

That's right, 18 years ago Newcastle took its first baby step towards becoming a little bit fashion savvy.

18 years on Tiff and Tim continue to bring to Newcastle a smart collection of Mens & Womens staples, a specialised selection of Vinyl, CDs, Books and Polaroid Film, and since making the move across the street the bigger space has allowed them to greatly elaborate on their music selection, specifically vinyl.

 

From King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard to John Coltrane, Ray-Ban wayfarers to organic cotton t-shirts... Abicus is committed to supporting both local & International artists and designers.

We caught up with one half of the Abicus team, Tim McPhee, and got the low down on all things music, fashion and food, as well as the secret to his and Tiffany's success in retail.

When you have friends visit Newcastle where do you take them for Lunch?
Momo every time, their coffee, peanut butter shakes, house made crumpets, vegan boards and sticky date is truly next level. The vibe and people also make it a must do.
