About Us

Hawkes General Store


Fem Hawke first opened the doors to 46 Sale Street over 40 years ago, back then it was known as the The Orange Spinning Wheel. Although it was a little shop, Fem filled it to the brim with love and her larger-than-life personality (and after purchasing a cappuccino machine, a lot of caffeine). Over time, the shop changed names but was always, affectionately, Fem's

Fem was delighted when her daughter Coco took over the reins, and set the little shop on its big new adventure as Hawkes General Store. Always the fashionista, Coco introduced fashion to the shop's repertoire and filled it with colourful, fun and interesting treasures sourced locally, nationally and from all over the world. With a comprehensive list of labels that makes Hawkes the shopping destination in the Central West for fashion, homewares, children's clothing, babywear, gifts plus so, so much more. 

Our little shop still bursts with the love it has accumulated over the years and all of our valued friends, customers and team members add to that joy. Our shop may be little but its heart and its history is so freaking BIG!
