‘This was my first ever purchase from Truffle Shuffle…and what a fabulous purchase it was!! I had heard of Truffle Shuffle but as all the celebs were wearing bits from here (as I had seen in magazines) I thought it would be really expesive, but was plesently surprised!This Debbie Harry t-shirt was a birthday present for my sister, she absolutlely loves it. She hadn’t seen this t-shirt before so was pleased as not everyone had it. It fits her lovely and she is always wearing it. When it arrived and had a look and love the quality, it feels so nice and expensive was happy to pay £25 for it also was pleased the delivery wasn’t expensive. The packet love hearts were a bonus too we were both winners! Now just got to try and convince her she isn’t actually Debbie Harry!! Thanks Truffle Shuffle have already decided to order most my Xmas presents from here. Keep up the good work!!’

The NFL has been popular in the UK since the 1980′s when it was first shown on TV and several games were played at Wembley during the 80′s and early 90′s. Started initially as the American Professional Football Association in 1920, the league changed its name to the National Football League in 1922 and is made up of 32 teams from across America. Each NFL team plays sixteen regular season games and then the top six teams in each conference compete in the playoffs until the NFC and AFC champions are crowned. The showcase of the season is the Superbowl when those two teams play for the Vince Lombardi trophy.

“Everyone loves our fits,” says Natalie Grof, co-founder and CEO of Junk Food Clothing.  “When you wear one of our shirts, it feels like you found it in the back of your closet from years ago.  And that’s really what you want in a t-shirt. We have to agree, Junk Food was one of the first brands to feature on TruffleShuffle.com back in 2004 and we can’t get enough of their amazing fit and feel!

We were contacted recently by the Chernoble Children’s Project UK as they are organising a charity ball to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl accident and asked for our help with their fundraising.

The charity works with children in Belarus who have been affected by the nuclear disaster in 1986. Some of the many projects Chernobyl Children’s Project undertakes include organising recuperative holidays in Britain for Belarusian children, providing sanatorium holidays for disabled orphans in cleaner areas of Belarus, delivering humanitarian aid, setting up projects in Belarus to improve the lives of suffering children and their families and providing training and support to make long-term changes to the lives of those affected by the accident.

The charity ball will be held on Saturday 1st October in Altrincham, near Manchester and has a 1980s theme and so we have donated a gift voucher for the raffle which the lucky winner can spend on our site!

If you fancy a night of entertainment, including an 80’s tribute band, a DJ, raffle and other 80’s themed games you can find out about more about the event and the charity on their website.

We wish the Chernobyl Children’s Project UK all the best with their event and fundraising and look forward to hearing all about it. (with talk of our Rubik’s Cube fancy dress costume, there are sure to be some great photos of the event which we will be sure to share with you!)

Taking a looksy at Piccsy.

by Simon Western on September 25, 2011

When I’m not being creative for TruffleShuffle there’s nothing more than I like than checking out good design and photography websites. Lately I come across Piccsy. Piccsy is a website run by, used by and love by a massive group of image lovers (like myself). This website features some serious, funny, frankly absurd photography and graphics. This site takes you on a click journey and you’ll never know quite where you’re heading or what you’re going to find. After some ransom clicking I found myself immersed in graphical interpretations of all things 80s!! Whether it be Pacman, Superhero, Star Wars or even Sesame Street related you’ll probably find it here. I’ve picked out a few of my favourites to share with you now…

Love these Pacman designs…


If gang warfare erupted on Sesame Street

Fear and Loathing in Sesame Street

Here’s some great Star Wars imagery…


Ever wondered what Darth Vader would be like in Pulp Fiction? Me too….. It would be something like this.

And I couldn’t resist showing you some great Batman, Superman and Wonderwoman images…




So thats Piccsy, my new favourite website. When you take time out from shopping at TruffleShuffle, go and take a look, its amazing what you can find there. Enjoy.

If TruffleShuffle.com wasn’t named after the dance Chunk does in The Goonies movie it would probably be called Great Balls Of Fire or something to do with Top Gun! Us Trufflers are huge 80′s movies fans and so of course we were massively excited to hear about Top Gun being re-released in 3D.

So Maverick and Goose are getting ready to enter the danger zone once again with the added bonus of 3D. The company responsible for the remake are Legend3D and they have been busy at work converting the film for an early 2012 release however there hasn’t been an official announcement by Paramount yet. According to Legend3D’s CEO they want to get director Tony Scotts approval first, we do hope he likes it!

Just think – Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Kelly McGillis and the gang in 3 dimension, that fly by scene is going to be A-maz-ing!!

If Top Gun isn’t your cup of tea then perhaps you might favour one of the other classic films getting the 3D re-release treatment with the Lion King out now and George Lucas planning to release ALL THE STAR WARS FILMS over the next couple of years!

What do you think? An opportunity to see the iconic film again on the big screen, another staff night out to be planned we think!
