Parkers has been stocking art supplies in Sydney for almost a century. This family-run business, established in 1918, is the oldest fine arts supply store in our city so you know you can depend on them whatever your artistic needs may be. Overlooking a quaint cobbled alleyway in the Rocks, Parkers’ wooden green doors open to shelves stacked with tubes of paint, acrylics, canvases, crayons and brushes. You’ll walk into kaleidoscopic corners of colour and walk out inspired. Beyond its century old history as a badge of expertise, nearly all the staff who work there are practicing artists – expect friendly service and copious amounts of knowledge to be received.
